A new spin on cherry blossoms

We are always up for customizing cookies or coming up with new designs! So for Alison's bridal shower, her bridesmaid Jina wanted to keep the floral motif of the cherry blossom cookies but make sure that every detail had the bride in mind. For her shower favors, we did 2 simple branches with "alison" written in the center. We were very pleased with the way they turned out.

Congratulations Alison on your upcoming wedding!

Martha Show Recap


We're back from the taping of the Martha Stewart Show! Eileen and I were so excited to be there and we even left with some great goodies too!

First...what a beautiful set! Here's a picture of the kitchen section. What a dream...especially to us! We would looove to have a working kitchen like this. Sure, it's for filming, but everything works and it's so well lit, open and organized!

Here's Martha with one of the guests Eddie Ross (and friend). He's also a contestant on Top Design 2, and I remember him doing well on the last episode which isn't surprising considering he is an editor at Martha Stewart!


We don't have a picture but celeb blogger Perez Hilton was a guest. He looked great and was really funny too. Other guests included Margaret Roach who has a new gardening blog, A Way to Garden, and Matt from food blog mattbites.com

Matt and Martha baked these delicious looking alfajores (Dulce de Leche) cookies. For the recipe, click here. We'll definitely have to try these sometime!


As for the other audience goodies, we got the Cute Overload page a day calendar, the book A Year of Mornings, created by 2 friends who were 3191 miles apart, AND everyone also got a new HP Photosmart All in One wireless printer!

Thanks for the goodies Martha~!

Martha Stewart Show!

Martha is filming a show about blogging tomorrow and Eileen and I got tickets! It's E's second time being in the audience but my first. Martha has been an inspiration of ours for as long as I can remember...not just in her aesthetic and commitment to quality, but also her entrepreneurial spirit. I can't wait!

Baby Shower Cake~

This past weekend was my baby shower and I must thank Eileen for not only helping to plan such a memorable event, but for making this amazing cake:

Each mini cake was in the shape of a toy building block and spelled out Baby Tomato since that's the nickname that we've given the baby. Not only were they so cute and impressive, but they tasted delicious as well! In fact, a number of guests tried to convince us to add these to the Meli & Angi product line....hm....

Of course Meli was there to help us celebrate as well. Here she is having fun while playing with a balloon:
