cat in the hat, double chocolate cake, Dr. Seuss, homemade marshmallow fondant, Oreo Cookie filling, vanilla buttercream, Vanilla-bean cake
Since Theodor Seuss Geisel’s birthday is coming up on March 2nd, I wanted to share these super cute Cat in the Hat cupcakes I made for a classroom celebration last year.
The hats and Thing 1/Thing 2 discs were made from homemade marshmallow fondant. I rolled out red and white fondant fairly thin and cut little *donut* shapes with the big end of my piping tips. Then I stacked them on a bigger white disc with a bit of water to act as *glue* to look like hats. A bit tedious, but I think they came out great!
The cupcakes were vanilla and chocolate, each one with an Oreo cookie surprise baked inside. I piped on light blue vanilla buttercream to look like the crazy hair sported by Thing 1 and Thing 2 in the story. I also added some red and white sprinkles just for fun!
This year Theodor Geisel fans celebrates his being 112 years young at heart…we love you Dr. Seuss!
