Seussa Paloosa Cupcakes {Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss}

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday dear Dr. Seuss,
Happy Birthday to you!
Dr. Seuss was born March 2, 1904! If he were still here, he would be 107 years old! Can you iMaGiNe? Think about how many more amazing books would be out there if he were still around! Dr. Seuss is among our favorite authors. We love Seuss’ pure silliness! The crazy words and mixed up pictures make it soooooooo much FUN for my kiddos to get into! So, last year, when my oldest found out that it was Dr. Seuss’ big day (he may actually still think the Cat in the Hat is Dr.Seuss), he wanted to share the celebration with his preschool friends. So, we made some Seussa Paloosa Cupcakes! They had to be red and white, just like THE CAT’S hat. Rather than monkeying around with red food coloring, we decided to try adding bright color and yummy flavor with Jello. Here’s what we did:

Seussa Paloosa Cupcakes

Baked some plain old vanilla cupcakes. We let them cool for 15 minutes before using a straw to poke holes in each of them. Next, we mixed 1 cup of boiling water with one small package of red Jello – raspberry is what we had on hand. We stirred until all the Jello was dissolved and then we spooned the Jello over the cupcakes.

When all the cupcakes were bathed in Jello, we put them in the fridge for about two hours. Then we frosted them.

And sprinkled them.

 Now, just look at how pretty that raspberry Jello is! Yummy!

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. 
The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go”…. Dr. Seuss
