Dr. Seuss Cupcake Toppers...

 


Who doesn't LOVE Dr. Seuss?

I mean, he is legendary for wonderfully written children's books and illustrations. So much so, that the National Reading Association has made March 2nd, his birthday, Read Across America Day an annual event.

Many schools across America celebrate by reading his books, having Dr. Seuss dress-up days, and asking parents to bring in Dr. Seuss themed treats.




A few years back, my daughter's teacher asked that the class bring in a treat to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday. I did a little research and found many variations of a Cat in The Hat cookie. I decided to use Oreo Cookies for the base of my treat.

This time around I figured I'd place them on a cupcake and voilà... a Cat in The Hat cupcake topper!




They are super simple to make and everyone will love them. You will get major brownie points when you show up with these in hand... seriously, you will.

Would I steer ya wrong?

Anyway, go make these for your kids class on March 2nd... do it!


Dr. Seuss Cupcake Toppers
Makes 20-25 Cookies

Begin by separating the cherry red gummies from each bag. Save the other flavors for another use or to snack on later. Fill a pastry bag or large plastic food storage bag with the vanilla frosting. Squeeze it down toward the bottom or corner of the bag. Twist the top to close. Snip the tip or corner off of the bag to begin piping.

Take your cookie and pipe a circle, about the size of your gummies in the center of the cookie. Place a cherry red gummie on top of the piped frosting. Pipe another frosting circle on top of the cherry red gummie and place one more cherry red gummie on top of the frosting.

I was able to get about 50 cherry red gummies out of 3 bags.

  7. Adorable. I want to make these for my daugther to take to school on Friday. It's her birthday. I don't think we can buy life saver gummies in Australia. Please can you suggest an alternative? Hope you will see my message and reply as soon as you can. Thank you.
