Blondery Cake in a Jar

Auzerais Bellamy came up as a pastry chef through some of the most prestigious kitchens in the world, and then—as a Black woman in fine dining—smacked her head on the glass ceiling. She then started Blondery Bakery and her 11-layer cake in a jar makes my knees weak. I am only vaguely ashamed that I had no fork in my hotel room, so I ate it with my fingers—and it was worth it. There are plenty of people who make cake in a jar, but with every bite, it's evident that the person who crafted it has world-class skill. -Kat Kinsman, Senior Editor,

Areaware Table Tiles

We discovered these beautiful tiles in a small home design shop in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Although they're made to protect your table from hot dishes, we use them as coasters. The grooves collect condensation from your glass (unlike regular coasters which can stick to your glass when you pick it up), and they’re pretty enough to stack on a side table. -Heather Morgan Shott, Senior Director Content Strategy (Home),

I give these to all of my friends who love to cook, and especially those who are organizing nerds like me. -Breana Lai Killeen, Test Kitchen & Editorial Operations Manager,
