Karen Walker & The Caker team up for Mother’s Day

Karen Walker and The Caker’s Jordan Rondel have teamed up to create something delicious just in time for Mother’s Day. Long-time admirers of each other, the duo collaborated on a recipe for Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Cookies; the cookie mix is available online at both and, and in-store at all Karen Walker stores and The Caker Store.

“We worked together to develop this recipe that we felt was perfect for Mother’s Day,” says Rondel.  “When Karen and I began sharing those memories, that was the springboard for our inspiration,” she says. “Cookies are often the first thing a mum teaches her child to bake, aren’t they?” Walker adds. “We wanted this mix to be something you could gift to and then bake with your mum.”

In addition to the cookie mix, the pair is running a charity auction on Trade Me. The highest bidder will get to spend the afternoon with their mum and three friends in The Caker’s kitchen whipping up Mother’s Day cookies with Jordan and Karen. All of the funds raised from the auction will be donated to Plunket. Click here to make a bid.



New scent to try: Coach EDT

A great scent has the power to transport the senses to another time and place; this time it’s downtown New York during summer that we’re planning on visiting with Coach‘s newest fragrance, EDT (eau de toilette 90ml, $150).

With delectable fruity notes of pink grapefruit, mandarin oil, juicy pear and litchi and soft yet intoxicating florals – Sambac jasmine and white alba rose – you’ll forget it’s winter in no time at all. Seductive base notes of white cedarwood, musk, and sandalwood make this must-try scent truly unforgettable.

Coach EDT is available nationwide now from department stores, perfumeries, pharmacies and Farmers.
