Pop and country star Michelle Branch is adding a sweet sideline to her music career: bakery owner.

In a note to her fan message board, the Nashville resident says she's planning to open a bakery there called The Sugar Bar with pastry chef and pal Rebekka Seale.

“Baking, like music, is a creative release for me and can also be very therapeutic,” wrote Branch, who’s been in the studio recording her upcoming solo album, Everything Comes and Goes.

“You can always tell when I am stressed out because suddenly my house gets filled with cookies, cupcakes, and pie.”

Branch describes the venture as “an old-fashioned bakeshop and bar where you can go grab a drink after dinner and a slice of Bourbon Chocolate Cake or Summer Berry Pie.”

Though they are still searching for a shop location, Branch and Seale have posted a menu on the shop’s website (http://thesugarbar.com/) and say the sweets, which will include vegan red velvet cupcakes, pina colada baby cupcakes (pineapple cake with coconut rum cream cheese frosting) and flamingo pie (key lime with coconut cream) will be concocted using only local and organic ingredients.
