Thing 1 & Thing 2 Cupcakes for Dr. Suess' Birthday

Dr. Suess is Slugger's favorite thing, so it seemed only right to make something special for all the kiddos in her class for Dr. Suess' birthday this week.

I came up with this Thing 1 & Thing 2 idea I thought was so super cute!

These are a basic vanilla cupcake baked in a red liner with a basic vanilla buttercream frosting. To make them super suessical, I added Thing 1 & Thing 2 stickers I made to the fronts of the liners and we gave the cupcakes a healthy dose of blue cotton candy hair. I think they turned out great!

However, after we finished packing them up for the following day, we watched a little tv. When we came back to them, the blue cotton candy had turned into a hard gooey mess on top. Not pretty. I guess the moisture from the buttercream had sucked all of the air out of the cotton candy and just left behind what it didn't want. Total bummer.

However, I hear the kids really liked their cupcakes. They are cupcakes after all and who doesn't like that!

Thank you Erin! They were wonderful and my kindergarteners had no problem eating the melted cotton candy. THANK YOU for adding a sweet touch to our Dr. Seuss birthday celebration!
