Blake Lively Set to Launch Lifestyle Company

Move over Martha Stewart because actress Blake Lively is getting ready to launch a new lifestyle company.

She revealed, "I have so many passions outside of acting and things that I grew up being good at."  She described her new business venture as "storytelling and living a very one-of-a-kind, curated life, and how to achieve that."

The former 'Gossip Girl' celeb may be only 26, but she loves to cook and design, having recently filmed a brie pastry demonstration for Vogue's website and forged partnerships with several New York City bakeries.

Lively wed actor Ryan Reynolds in 2012 and he totally supports her decision to branch out into other areas.

Blake describes herself as a "foodie and cook" and claims that her idol really is Martha Stewart, who got her start as a caterer and managed to turn that expertise into a lucrative brand empire.

Stewart, who baked a cake on television with Lively in 2008, was so impressed with the actress' style that she featured vignettes from Blake's South Carolina wedding in the pages of her popular Martha Stewart Weddings.

The new company, still unnamed, will be launched within the next few months.  We're already imagining the first of many celebrity cookbooks filled with her own brand of culinary expertise.  You Go Girl!

We've included her Vogue cooking demo after the jump:
