A Sweet visit to Martha Stewart
July 27th, 2010 by Carrie
We recently were in New York and had an amazing tour of the Martha Stewart offices. We wanted to share a few highlights of the visit.
To start it off, we of course had to bring cupcakes with a bit of couture custom for Martha Stewart. We partnered with Magnolia Bakery
to create this sweet 3-dozen cupcake offering.
Here I am in the lobby of the Martha Stewart offices.
For those of you who hadn’t heard the news, about 2-3 months ago we received a call from Anthony Luscia, Special Projects Editor for Martha Stewart Weddings. Anthony was requesting custom wrappers for an upcoming Living magazine article. We were able to work with one of their preferred designers to create a one of a kind pattern. We wish we could show you but you’ll just have to wait til it comes out later this year.
A view inside one of the four test kitchens. There is even one for Emeril Lagasse.
There were several bakers and we spotted some fluffy white coconut cupcakes. We took a photo of them but then thought they may be for some upcoming issue and didn’t want to ruin the element of surprise. But I have to say they looked oh-so-delicious!
Our two most fabulous tour guides (and cupcake tasters); Katie and Anthony.
Katie and Anthony showed us the display room with hundreds of different tables, chairs, vases etc for setting up a photo shoot. There were shoes and dresses galore. Rooms to do the photo shoots and so much more. It was very dreamy. And the sweetest moment was getting to walk by “The” Martha Stewart’s office where we saw her newest Emmy. Congratulation Martha!
We had also hoped to meet Alexis Tirado from Martha Stewart’s Dreamer’s into Doer’s program. She had selected us as a “Doer of the Week” last year. More details HERE. However her last day was the day before we arrived. See where Alexis went HERE (hint Alecia Keyes).
It was all an amazing experience and we feel so honored!
