Here’s some big news: Heather Earnhardt, preternatural pastry maker at Volunteer Park Cafe, is moving on from the restaurant, according to a release.

Earnhardt, who helped to open and was with the cafe for five years, is leaving to teach baking and consult on projects. (Something she’s familiar with: High 5 Pie’s Dani Cone enlisted her help in early 2011.)

Two of Earnhardt’s “protégées” will take over for her, and VPC chef and owner Ericka Burke will have a hand in the baking as well. Anyone who has sampled Earnhardt’s baked goodness (especially those chocolate chip cookies) knows those are big red shoes to fill.
