CDA, Martha Stewart Bake Pact

Callaway Digital Arts (CDA), a digital media firm which has made a name for itself for producing apps for Apple’s iPhone and iPad aimed at kids, has announced a partnership with the queen of holiday baking herself—Martha Stewart.

Stewart and Callaway will collaborate on Martha Stewart Makes Cookies for iPad, a new interactive cooking application aimed at families looking for fun recipes during the holiday season. The app features instructional videos and baking tips along with a variety of cooking tools, such kitchen timers and shopping lists.

CDA executives said the new Martha app will be one of several “high profile,” iPad-centric projects in the works over the coming months. The company, perhaps best know for its series of iPad apps created for the popular Miss Spider’s children’s series, has just raised $6 million in Series A financing from Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers’ iFund and several other investors, including Mark Pincus, founder and CEO of Zynga.

“Callaway Digital Arts is one of the very few interactive publishers to fully understand and exploit the iPad’s transformative capabilities as a publishing platform,” said John Doerr, Partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. “Callaway stands out as a leader for its artistically beautiful and addictive iPad apps, as well as the pipeline of high-quality content owners it has lined up as partners.”
