April 16th, 2010

Let me just start off by saying that my floors are mopped and my house is dusted (huge thanks to my beautiful Stepmom Jenean), my windows are clean, the outlet covers have been scrubbed and my stainless steel appliances are gleaming.  The bills are paidthecheckbookisbalancedtherugsarevacuumedthelaundryisdone…my word, would this baby just make an appearance already so I can sit down for a minute??? 

Needless to say it’s perfect timing to highlight yet another stunner that Carrie Metz of Sucre Dolce’ Bakehouse created with the help of her Cupcake Tower.  Check out this display she created for a ‘Let’s Help Get the Nest Ready’ themed baby shower with monkeys and owls.  Notice how Carrie uses the supports as a base, many of you write in asking if this is possible.  Not only is it possible but it gives the Tower a totally different look that we LOVE.

“The topper cake was a whimsical take on the invitation” says Carrie.  “Chocolate cake with whipped peanut butter ganache filling, and peanut butter buttercream. (This is my favorite flavor combination on this earth at the moment, haha!) The cupcakes were white velvet cream with vanilla bean buttercream, and vanilla bean with cinnamon dolce buttercream.”   Honestly Carrie, YUM.

The favors for the shower were these super cute onesie cookies.  Thanks again for sharing Carrie!

To distract myself from possibly shampooing the carpets tonight (for my poor husband’s sake) I decided to continue my ‘nesting’ online instead…here’s what I came up with:

These pretty nesting bowls by Etsy seller dorothydomingo must be mine someday:

Martha Martha Martha…these are pretty stinkin cute:

Nesting Baby-Bluebird Cupcakes

These are too pretty to really use but then again, with real cocoa added how could you not?  This is just one of LoveLee Soaps ridiculously adorable creations (she makes ‘cupcake’ soaps too):

Blue Bird Nest Soap Set

Lastly, this onesie brought a huge smile to my face as it reminds me of studying Russian from Jr. High through College.  The famous ‘Matroyshka’ or ‘Babushka’ nesting dolls couldn’t be cuter on this little bodysuit by trulysanctuary:
