Cassandra's Year Of Birthday Cakes

Cassandra's Year Of Birthday Cakes

In 2017 I made a little deal with myself, I wanted to make all of my family’s birthday cakes (thanks, Ina Garten and Barefoot Contessa for the inspiration). I enjoy baking with my kids and thought that letting them help with their own cakes would create some great memories and foster their love for cooking and baking. The birthday cakes weren’t perfect works of art, but they were prepared with love - so they tasted even better!

We love all the buzz about the release of Cooking for Jeffrey! Have you seen People Magazine's exclusive peek into Ina and Jeffrey's 48-year marriage? It's such a lovely story (you can read it here). And, we're so excited to bring you French Wines Glasses similar to the ones Ina and Jeffrey are using in the exclusive photo (courtesy of People/Christopher Testani).

Our East Hampton Favorites

Our East Hampton Favorites

I have so many great memories from growing up in East Hampton, NY – but I didn’t fully understand what a special place it is until I got a little older. No matter how old I get or where I live, I will always miss ‘home’ – especially in the summer. Thankfully, we get to spend lots of time visiting EH.

Springs Farmer's Market - East Hampton

Springs Farmer's Market - East Hampton

I absolutely love summer in East Hampton. One of my favorite things to do is visit the local farmer’s markets. This week Cassandra was in town and we had a great morning at the Springs Farmer’s Market on the green at Ashawagh Hall. Springs is the part of East Hampton where we both grew up, so it’s always fun to visit the market when we're back there during the summer.

Happy Mother's Day

In honor of Mother’s Day I wanted to write a bit about my own mother, Barbara. She’s not only a supportive and loving mom, but she’s become quite the cook and has been Ina Garten’s personal assistant for the last 16 years. Her encouragement and support plays a significant role as Cindy and I continue to move forward with Cassandra’s Kitchen.

Laura's Cakes!

I first Met Laura a few years ago when she began lifeguarding at our local ocean beach in Amagansett. At 18 she was a high school senior, a member of the high school swim team, a volunteer EMT first responder for the Amagansett volunteer ambulance, a teacher of CPR/AED/First Aid courses... Oh, and headed to Cornell to major in Animal Science at Cornell’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Did I mention she was 18?? ....You can imagine my surprise when on top of all of this, she shows up at the beach one day with a gorgeous cake for her friend, and fellow lifeguard, Kelly. It turns out she also bakes. And not just bake... she BAKES. And decorates like a pro! Later that day, I called Cassandra to tell her about Laura and her cake and she informed me that she used to babysit for Laura when she was just a baby! Small world!

We are donating some of our favorite tools for her kitchen collection: Stainless Steel Icing SpatulasPastry Decorating Set - 3 pcAssorted Pastry Tube Set - 6 pcPlastic Coated 12" Decorating BagWhite Baking CupsParchment Baking SheetsNielsen Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla ExtractPremium Vanilla Beans.
