burger buns + nerdy puns

In the past few months, I've found myself leaning more towards making cupcakes than I have in the past. They're a bit easier to transport and they're especially easier to divvy up when celebrating in a public place (aka you don't have to ask the bartender for a knife). So whether they are just mini versions of a whole cake or each develops into its own personality, cupcakes are a different way of thinking and working. So it was fun to come up with these:

Happy birthday Grace + Potter!
