You might have noticed by now that I have a slight obsession with Dr. Seuss. I have so many wonderful memories reading his books and creating fun Dr. Seuss themed activities and recipes for my kindergarten class. Read Across America (Dr. Seuss’ birthday) is on March 2nd and I have been pulling out some of my favorite activities, crafts and recipes to commemorate this creative author. These Dr. Seuss Oh the Places You’ll Go Cupcakes have a wonderful surprise hidden inside that I think Dr. Seuss would love.
The cupcake itself is the Funfetti box mix from Pillsbury but if you wanted to you could make your own from scratch. I also made mini-cupcakes but you could also adapt these for regular sized cupcakes as well. The frosting is light and fluffy because we are using whipped topping instead of frosting since the middle is full of colorful sprinkles.
