The Lorax Cupcakes {Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss}

Hooray for Friday!

Little Man has a fun play group that meets together each week.  This Wednesday, it was our turn to host.  To introduce our "S is for Seuss" Mommy School unit, I decided to throw a little Dr. Seuss birthday party!  We made Cat in the Hat paper headbands, read some Dr. Seuss books, and ate Lorax cupcakes!

Of course the cupcakes were a big hit with the boys.

Little Man and his friends enjoyed every bite!

(Little Man wasn't loving the idea of wearing his hat!)

These were so fun to make!

* I just tinted my favorite frosting orange using orange food coloring.

* I used white peanut butter M&M's for the eyes, and drew the eyeballs on with black icing.

* I used the edges of Oreos for the moustaches.  I dipped them in yellow melts and drizzled some extra yellow chocolate for the "furry" look.

* I used a white Chicket for the nose and a part of a red Lifesaver for the mouth!

Are you going to see the new "The Lorax" movie?

We just might be going on a Mommy/son date to the movies today!

Enjoy your weekend!

      We just returned from the movie, and it was so cute!! I hope you can catch it… you will love it! 🙂

  3. I absolutely love this cupcake idea. It is so fun and timely with the recent release of “The Lorax” movie. As a college student, I always love finding inspiration for crafting/baking ideas, and I hit the jackpot when I came across your site. I was actually on when I found your St. Patrick’s Day dessert cup recipe. I wanted to use it for the St. Patrick’s Day special section I’m putting together for my student newspaper. Thanks for all the fun ideas, please keep posting! 🙂
