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!
