Having a mother who is a veteran New York City DJ is a pretty lucky thing. Add to that, a mother who is also a cake-making extraordinaire and you’ve pretty much hit the rad-mom lottery. Such is the case of 2.5-year-old Aoife (pronounced EE-fa), the offspring of Justine Delaney, otherwise known as Justine D.. After 17 years of making her name synonymous with NYC nightlife, the new-ish mama is now on the brink of (officially) launching her inventive cake company, which has already produced stunning sugarspun wonders for the kids of Opening Ceremony’s Humberto Leon and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder. In other words, Justine is one cool cat. Here, the creative, multi-tasking mama shows us around her dream home (which used to be a school house) and talks motherhood, raising a kid in the city, and so much more.
