In the realm of baking and pastry, I know that baking theory is my passion. But when it comes to a favourite practical component, I just don't know.

I'm moving to Muskoka this week, where I assume I won't be practicing much baking theory. So, I thought I'd try something new.

For a while, I've been fascinated with the concept of painting with food colouring. While I won't be able to bake and decorate cookies, I thought watercolour painting would be a good starting point, so I'm going to try and teach myself.

Instead of a recipe, I thought I could share some of my painting practice, and a few inspiration links. I'm really into flowers right now...but hopefully I'll branch out. Also, I'm a complete beginner, so if anyone has any tips, I'd love to hear them.

-This image is what really inspired me to try my hand at painting—a friend from my baking program works here.

-These painted pie tops.

-I love these painted fondant cookies and this cake

-Everything from Baked Ideas—especially these. Also, her piping skills make me feel hopeless.

-The first image in this post was inspired by this painting from the painted arrow.


  1. These are so lovely, Beth! I love watercolours. They are the first type of painting I ever did - and I think still my favourite.Watercolour pencils can be quite nice for portability and colour selection. Also for details. Sometimes I take them with me outside with a water bottle and its easy to paint anywhere. I can't wait to see more of your painting!

  2. Pretty! Love love especially the first one!

  3. Beautiful Beth! Watercolor have a special effect to them, like how they gives off a bit dreamy blurry image, makes a painting look more like one! Good job!!
