Bin Laden cupcakes, a ‘Justice Party’ and toasting the military

Because there is apparently no wrong time for a cupcake, Furin’s in Georgetown baked up a set of U.S.A. and Osama bin Laden-themed sweets to commemorate the news that U.S. forces had killed the al-Qaeda leader in Pakistan after a decade-long search.

(Thankfully, they don’t feature bin Laden’s trademark beard like these cupcakes advertised in Georgia.)
