TO GOOD TO RESIST

The trio of cakes Martha Stewart shared with viewers hit the sweet spot for "Pretty Woman" star Richard Gere. After seeing what delights the lifestyle guru whipped up, he just had to make the Mile High Salted-Caramel Chocolate Cake his, as she wrote:

"The phone call was from my neighbor @richardgereofficial. He is a neighbor and he wanted the chocolate caramel mile-high cake- we took it over to him and his family after the show!"

PERFECT TIMING FOR HER BOOK RELEASE

When quarantine regulations set in amid the novel coronavirus, Stewart opted for a retreat to her beautiful farm in Bedford, New York. There, the lifestyle guru said she's been eating healthier than ever.

Of course, there was cake - but she didn't bake it herself.

Whipping up meals with ingredients straight from the garden, Stewart said she actually lost about "16 pounds," but she thinks of herself as the exception.

Therefore, the release of her latest book couldn't have come at a better time, especially with the holiday season just around the corner, as she said:

“People are baking cakes and eating more than they’ve ever eaten before. I think most people have gained weight.”

NO STOPPING STEWART

Not slowing down for anything, Martha Stewart is quickly approaching a milestone age. The lifestyle guru turned 79 in August, and of course, there was cake - but she didn't bake it herself.

Sharing her birthday celebration with fans, Stewart proudly showed off the "creamsicle ice cream cake" her daughter, Alexis made in celebration. She even had big candles to blow out.
