Last night E hosted our first (hopefully of many!) Pintrest Parties! We all showed up with a canvas, a yummy app & of course no girls night would be complete without a bottle of vino! Our theme was FALL and we had spotted this adorable canvas on pintrest.

The ORIGINAL idea

Armed with paint, brushes and an idea we were ready!!

3rd place!!!

Mama Bird's Nest

You read it right! Mama Bird’s Nest took 3rd place in the PROFESSIONAL category at Cupcakes for Cures  for BEST RETRO CUPCAKE. I made my Famous {if only in my mind} and now Award Winning Carrot Apple Cupcake with a blood orange frosting!  So proud, I was able to go against some of the great pastry chefs in Western North Carolina!!

How about my beautiful cake stand? Hand-made by my good friend Todd! It has an even larger base that can be added to hold tons of cupcakes!! His sweet wife came out to support Cupcakes for Cures and brought it!! LOVE
