Cupcake Cars Maker Faire

Excerpt from the article:

You don’t see bicycle- powered cardboard rhinos every day. But when you nearly stumble into one at a Maker Faire, you don’t even blink. After just a few hours spent navigating one’s way though twirling electric- powered cupcake cars and dashing steampunk-attired ladies and gentlemen, you become well-trained to expect the incongruous and delight- fully absurd. And you start thinking, hmm … I’ve got a lot of cardboard in my basement … what completely bonkers thing can I do with it?
