Austin: Howard Daughters

Seriously, why is everyone is Austin so dang cool? I just came across this on Rikshaw Design and I'm bubbling with envy - my favorite foodie Aimee will be, too, when she reads this - over Howard Daughters. Owned by sisters Blake and Elizabeth, who have worked with Alice Waters at Chez Panisse and Chad Robertson and Liz Prueitt of Tartine Bakery, the girls churn out organic sweets and ice cream made from local ingredients and will turn up at your next party with this super cute trike filled with mouthwatering goodies.
Again, I'm a freak for packaging and I so appreciate the old-school throw back vertical stripes and simple oval logo. Their menu is, of course, seasonal and the rotating menu has things like candied citrus peels, coconut rum macaroons, and chocolate wafer sandwiches filled with mint ice cream.
