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!
