What’s Needed For Your Dr Seuss Cupcakes
With a surprisingly short ingredient list for these fantastic looking cupcakes, you just can’t go wrong with these! If you’re not a fan of packaged cake mixes, you can scratch make a basic white vanilla cake mixture to keep it all as healthy and natural as possible for your toddler.
- 1 Box White Cake Mix
- 1 Can White Frosting
- Red Ice Cream Cones
- Life Saver Gummies (Only need the Red)
- Red Food Coloring
How To Make Cat in the Hat Cupcakes
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Make the cake mix according to package directions. Fill ice cream cones about 3/4 the way up.
Carefully place on a cookie sheet and place in oven. Bake 23-25 minutes and remove from oven. Set aside and let cool.
Split frosting between two bowls and color one red. Place each frosting into a baggie or piping bag and snip corner.
Decorating Your Cat In The Hat Cupcakes
Once the cat in the hat cupcakes are cooled, pipe on a thin layer of white frosting, then pipe on a smaller circle of red frosting and end with a smaller circle of white frosting.
Place one gummy on top of the frosted cupcake and pipe frosting around the gummy then place another gummy on top.
Repeat this step until you have 3 gummies stacked on top of each other.
Ready to enjoy and serve for a fun Dr Seuss party!
If you’re hosting a party and not sure about how much you’ll need, remember that 1 box of cake mix makes 20-22 ice cream cone cupcakes.
