a bunch of dr seuss cupcakes....!


....the kids love love love dr seuss (who doesn't?)......and since dr seuss's birthday is march 2nd....and i'm leaving for a work trip monday.....i figured i'd leave the kids with some cupcakes with a caveat that they have to read whatever book they eat this week to celebrate his born on date.....!

...these all are a lemon cupcake from a box mix....(with a little added oj as the water).....


....green eggs and ham....the ham is a cake bite (crumbled cake and icing) and formed into a "ham" shape....then dipped in green candy melt....and the black line detail is from a wilton food writer....

....the eggs are white candy melt blobs with jelly belly jelly beans as the centers....


....lorax truffula trees are campfire fruit swirler marshmallows (cut them with some kitchen shears for some detail)....then attached to a tooth pick and covered with yellow candy melt....when dry added some black detail with the food writer again....


...cat in the hat's thing 1 & thing 2....are dum dum lollipops dipped in white candy melt with blue buttercream piped with a wilton #4 tip for the hair.....covered the stick in red food writer (watch out these heads are top heavy!)....

....the other cupcakes are yertle the turtle (done in blue and white candy melt and detail with the black food writer again)....the sneetches (candy melt star and buttercream belly).....and the lesser known the butter battle book (done in candy melt as well).....plus some mini cupcakes with rainbow icing and topped with fruit flavored lemon heads....


...thanks for stopping by and happy birthday dr seuss!also linked to sweet tooth friday
