Dr. Seuss Red Velvet Cupcakes Hero-Its A Keeper

Hi,  it’s Candi from A Day in Candiland. I’ll be stopping by It’s a Keeper each month to bring you great content. This month I am sharing these Dr. Seuss Red Velvet Cupcakes with you.

I used to work in a school that celebrated Dr. Seuss week in the younger grades. It was a so much fun. Everyday was a different theme and we decorated the classroom completely wacky, played games and had a daily reading time of Dr. Seuss Books. It was fun to watch the kids get excited about reading and sharing the different books they had. One of the other great things was snack time.

We always had goldfish, and hot dogs made out of bananas, peanut butter and strawberry jelly. My favorite were the cupcakes.

Today I am sharing these the best Red Velvet Cupcake recipe and fun Dr Seuss printables with Thing 1 and Thing 2.

The first thing is to make the red velvet cupcakes and put them in these cute polka dot wrappers that I found at Michaels.

I frosted them with Cream Cheese frosting tinted blue and then decorated them with Thing 1 and Thing 2 tags.

You can glue the tags to the front or use them as cupcake pics on top.

Just print out this printable using card stock paper and cut out with a circle punch and hot glue on or glue to a toothpick and place in the frosting.  You can find the Cupcake Tag Printable here.

Once the cupcakes are done , print out the tags, cut with a circle cutter punch and place on a cake stand or cupcake stand.
