Cakery Friday: A Year In Review

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their love and support in 2011. We are so excited for all of the exciting things to come in 2012. Niki is celebrating a big birthday, I am getting married, and R + M turn 1 all before the end of March! Here are the biggest Cakery hits from 2011….

Oreo Treats










Kitchen Sink Cookies


Homemade Twix Bars 


S’more Cups 

Nutella Cupcakes 

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies {now affectionately referred to as “Pregnant Cookies”} 

French Macaroons 

Cake Batter Bark 


Happy and healthy 2012!




Bubbles and Baubles

So what do you have planned for New Years Eve? Something fun? Something festive? Something romantic.

Since R + M came into the picture our nights have been a little more mellow to say the least. We’re planning a night of stone crabs, champagne and movies. It should be the perfect ending to what can only be called the best year yet.

I’m so blessed…. with a job and career that I love passionately…. with customers who have become friends and confidants, who value my skills and patronize my business…. with a blog that lets me put my “diary” and crazy-artsy ideas out to the world {and actually receive compliments}…..with friends long and old who listen to me when I need to talk, and who confide in me when they need me to listen…. with a family filled with siblings and parents who are my best friends…. with a husband who gives me guidance, advice, friendship and support {despite my shortcomings}, and who is my biggest cheerleaders always….. and with two beautiful, healthy and incredible children who have helped me realize what is truly important in life, and who cease to stop making me smile.

If you’re looking for a festive bubbles to ring in 2012 look no further than these jello shots, that would be equally delicious if with champagne instead of vodka!

And if you’re looking for the perfect baubles for 2012 check out theses bling blingers from Erickson Beaman {my new favorite jewelry designer}.

Happy Bubbles. Happy baubles! Happy New Year!



Sisterly Six

As you read this we are far far away. Where you aren’t {we promise}. Eating s’mores. Or nachos. Or Barefoot Contessa’s macaroni and cheese. Or chocolate chip cookies. You get the point. We are stuffing out faces. Here’s what we love the last week of 2011. Thanks for tuning in this year. We love having you as our readers and hope this has inspired you to: a. shop, b. love your sisters/or sister-like family/friends or c. discover things you love. {Did we mention this week will be six of our favorite gifts that were received….} Here goes.


Hello new fellow in our kitchen. We are reliving the 80’s in style every time we strike a match… and a pose.

Hello little fellow who is currently residing in R + M’s nursery, bringing light to the darkness.


Hello new pillow on our bed. I heart you.

Hello Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook. Excited to recipe test in 2012.


Hola new pair of Ray Bans. Now I can avoid paparazzi in style.

Hi lululemon zip up. I don’t even need to be working out to wear you in style.

Niki, Ali + Gavi
