Last week, a producer over at Philly's Fox29 morning show Good Day called and asked if Zoë would like to come do a cookie decorating demonstration on live TV. There was a TON of last-minute prep work getting ready for the segment, but we pulled everything together and Zoe did great interacting with the hosts! You can see the segment here.

Last week, I got a call from Darcy Miller to ask if we had time to make 200 cookies for an event she was co-hosting with Drew Barrymore to promote Darcy's book Celebrate Everything and Drew's amazing SOHO fashion pop-up shop Dear Drew. I was all, "UM YES."
After many hours of baking, rolling, cutting, decorating and packaging, we anxiously packed the cookies with a ridiculous amount of padding and shipped them to NYC just in time for the big event.
On Saturday, Brennen and I drove through the snow from Philly to Manhattan to visit Dear Drew. The store was so, so cool and we got to meet Drew Barrymore, who just could not be nicer or more supportive of us as small business owners.
And yes, I bought some fun new earrings, just because.
Huge thanks to Darcy Miller, Drew Barrymore and Dear Drew for this opportunity to show what our team can do in our little Philadelphia bakeshop!
Earlier this year, we made this gilded pear wedding cake for a French Garden themed photoshoot put together by Maria Mack Photography, Open Aire Affairs and a host of other amazing Philadelphia wedding vendors. Yesterday, we learned that our cake was featured in BRIDES, which is a big honor in our industry. Thanks to Maria Mack for the dreamy photo, and thanks to BRIDES Real Weddings Editor Anna Price Olson for featuring the cake!
This past week, we had a blast attending Birchtree Catering's party as they celebrated becoming the exclusive caterer at beautiful Awbury Arboretum. There were many excellent vendors there, and we debuted our gluten-free Sasquatch brownies to rave reviews.
We can't say enough good things about the team over at Birchtree Catering (their motto is "locally minded, seasonally inspired"), and obviously Awbury Arboretum is a lovely wedding venue as you can see in these photos by Cathie Berrey-Green of BG Productions. We love delivering wedding cakes to Awbury and we are proud to be on their preferred vendor list. If you're looking for a hidden jewel of a venue in Philadelphia, I think you have just found it!
