A ballerina-turned-baker was the star of a previous post here.  Today, I’d like to show you a few creations by another artist who ventured into the world of confectionery. Heather Baird used to paint and work in galleries for painters, sculptors, glass blowers, textile artists and other artisans as a career. Now she creates art in the form of “desserts that are as artful as they are delicious.” The best part: Heather shares her passion for making beautiful, delectable sweets by posting free recipes and decorating ideas on her blog SprinkleBakes. That’s certainly more than just a sprinkling of love, don’t you think?

I’ve featured a bedroom with accents in pale blue, pink and yellow; shown ways on how to use pastel prints at home; and recently included pastel-colored summer accessories on my wishlist. Here’s another post on pastels, just because we can’t get tired of looking at these soothing colors. By the way, two of these pictures are from Muuto, the Scandinavian firm whose office furniture designs I wrote about here.
