What were the most popular topics among users of social imagery site Pinterest in all of 2013? From history to pop culture to taco cupcakes, Pinterest's users delight in the strange and delicious.

Pinterest users are a creative lot. Forget top searches like Nelson Mandela and the iPhone 5s we saw in Google's Zeitgeist this year. At Pinterest, the top 2013 pins were comprised of taco cupcakes, the real Django and 3D printers. Curious what those and other top pins look like? Let's have a look.

Taco Cupcakes

No, taco cupcakes aren't cupcakes shaped like tacos, silly. They're tacos in the shape of cupcakes! Made with wonton wrappers and filled with whatever kind of taco goodness you can think of, these little beauts made the top-pinned foods of the year at Pinterest.
