March 2nd is the birthday of the famous writer and also a day to celebrate. I made some little treats for my kids for a little celebration.

This one was first published on Feb 18, 2013, however, I am republishing with more information.
Supplies needed to make these Dr. Seuss birthday treats:
- push pop containers
- white cardstock
- black marker
- cake mix
- red gel food color
- ingredients to make the cake
- blue cotton candy
- adhesive dots
- icing tip and bag
How to Make Thing 1 and 2 Cupcakes:
Bake the Cake
Start by baking a cake. You can use a box mix and then tint the batter red before baking. I recommend a gel food coloring as it will give you a much richer color. I actually baked my cake in 3 layers so each layer would be thinner. Bake until done and then set aside to cool completely.
Make the Decorations
I actually looked up images of Thing 1 and 2 online and freehanded the faces and thing 1 and 2 round pieces. I just used a black marker and white cardstock. You could also print some images and trace or just cut them out.
Assemble the Push Pops
Then use the push pop container itself to cut your rounds of cake.
Start with one round of cake in the bottom of your push pop container.
Then add in a layer of icing. You will also tint the icing with the same red food coloring. Then just repeat these layers until you reach the top of the push pop container. For me, it was 3 layers of cake and 2 layers of icing.
Add your cardstock decorations on with a few glue dots.
Then use a little icing to add on some blue cotton candy hair onto the top of your Dr. Seuss birthday treats.
Eat and Enjoy!
These Seuss cupcakes are done and ready to eat! That is if you can even eat something this adorable. If you are taking these to a school for a party, be sure to add your cotton candy hair after you get there. Cotton candy does not do well when exposed to the moisture of the cake so add it just before serving.
I know that we have a huge collection of Dr. Seuss books around our home. I really believe that Dr. Seuss is someone who is loved by kids and adults alike. All of this makes celebrating his birthday so much more fun.
Invite Thing 1 and Thing 2 to your house for supper on March 2nd or any day of the week. These push pop cupcakes are easy enough for every day but also special enough to be a treat for your celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Aren’t they almost too cute to eat? Well, almost. So, y’all enjoy and whip up a huge batch of these Dr. Seuss birthday treats.
