Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

"From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere!"

-Dr. Seuss, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

Tomorrow is Dr. Seuss' 108th birthday and I decided to celebrate by making 80 Cat in the Hat inspired cupcakes for my yougest son's preschool.

Yep, 80.  You read that right.  Wanna see what 80 cupcakes looks like?  Well, I can't show you that.  But I CAN show you almost 80.  I couldn't get all 80 in the picture.

They were surprisingly simple.  I got the idea here

I used regular size marshmallows and dipped one end in melted red candy melts (from Wilton, bought at JoAnn's) and then put them on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.  Once they had set (it only took a few minutes), I dipped the other end in the red candy melts.  Then I melted white candy melts (you could use white chocolate instead) and piped circles on parchment paper and dropped a marshmallow in the middle of the circle.

I really like the blue with the red and white hat.  It's very Seuss, I think.  They were a little plain, though, so I sprinkled white non-pariels on top before adding the hat.

The packaging is a genius idea I found online somewhere.   I put each cupcake in a clear, 6 ounce party cup and then dropped them in clear cellophane treat bags and tied them off with a red ribbon.  So portable and easy!

Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss!
