As if Monday’s Dr. Seuss Inspired Rhyming Game didn’t already clue you in, we’re big fans of Dr. Seuss around these parts. Cat in the Hat, Hop on Pop, Green Eggs and Ham, and so many other books penned by this amazing author are in regular rotation of what we read on a daily basis. We’ve recently added The Sneetches to our library and I love the message it delivers. With Dr. Seuss’ birthday coming up quickly (March 2!), I put together some sweet little Dr. Seuss Sneetches Cupcakes in honor of his big day!
The Sneetches teaches equality and the importance of looking past what’s outside and putting value on what’s inside a person. What an invaluable lesson to teach anyone at any age.
The “recipe” (if you can even call it that) is ridiculously simple. Bake whatever box mix you’d like according to the directions on the package. I chose to use a yellow cake mix and added sprinkles in the batter to make it a little more Seuss-like.
While the cupcakes are baking, cut stars out of fruit roll-ups. I cut enough to cover half of the cupcakes. When the cupcakes are finished and cooled completely, use yellow food coloring to tint vanilla frosting the color of Sneetches and use a small star tip to create the fur-like texture. Top the cupcakes with the cut stars and serve!
My kids are in love with these fun little cupcakes and I can’t wait to pass them along to my son’s Preschool teacher. 🙂
So tell me, what’s your favorite Dr. Seuss book?
