These days, Kelly Rutherford is turning her attention to the sweeter things in life: cookies! The Gossip Girl star recently partnered with New York’s Eleni’s bakery to create tasty treats ($28.50 for a box of eight) in the shapes of her newly launched QVC handbags. According to bakery owner Eleni Gianopulos, cookie designers worked with Rutherford to create miniature versions of her purses, using edible silver and sweet sugar to “make them as glamorous as her line,” she told PEOPLE Tuesday night at the launch party. Rutherford, who frequents Eleni’s Upper East Side outpost (how Lily van der Woodsen of her) says a lot of the inspiration for her real handbags comes in part from her on-screen alter ego. “I think the crossover with Lily and myself is that we both like really classic pieces,” she said. “I wanted to make handbags that wouldn’t go in and out of style so fast.” Rutherford has even worn one of her creations — a black clutch — on screen, though she claims her style is much different than that of her character. “I always say that Lily just has a bigger budget,” she explained. “If I had her budget, I’d probably be wearing a lot of the same things. But I’m more casual because I have little kids. When I come home, I have to be able to throw things in the wash!” –Lindsey Gilbert
