How can you make cakes, cookies, and candy even MORE fun? Award-winning blogger Heather Baird, a vibrant new voice in the culinary world, has the answer: Cook like an artist! Combining her awesome skills as a baker and a painter, she has created a gorgeous, innovative cookbook, designed to unleash the creative side of every baker.

With these easy-to-follow instructions and beautiful, step-by-step photos, anyone can make Heather's jaw-dropping creations, from Mehndi Hand Ginger Cookies to her seasonal masterpiece, a Duraflame®-inspired Yule Log.
