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!!
