Dr Seuss Cupcakes Oh The Places You’ll Go

It’s a bit of a Dr Seuss themed week here on the blog and today we are sharing a fantastic recipe for Dr Seuss Cupcakes based on the wonderful book “Oh the places you’ll go”.

We recently shared a Dr Seuss garden party based on the same theme and these cupcakes would go perfectly at any Dr Seuss Party. You can also check out our Cat In The Hat Treats and later this week we have another special treat to share.

Without further chat, here is the recipe and ingredients. You can buy them from online from Amazon or find similar items from the local supermarket.

Dr Seuss Cupcakes

1—16 oz. Container Whipped Topping

Mini Cupcake Liners

Piping Bags

First of all mix and bake the mini cupcakes as per the instructions on the box. You can use a funfetti package or any other cupcake packet in the store. There are plenty to choose from in Asda or Tescos for around one pound.

After the mini cupcakes are completely cooled, cut out a small hole in the middle of each one.

Next divide the whipped topping into 6 separate bowls, and mix in each food colouring colour.

Starting with your bottom colour, fill the top of the cupcake in a thin, circular pattern. Using next colour, pipe a little bit smaller circle on top of the bottom colour leaving the edges of the first colour showing.

Continue on with all your colours. You should have a tall, cone shape pattern on your cupcake.

    Oh how cute. What a great surprise when you get to the center. This is one of my favorite books of all time!

    That’s a lot of icing – which is great because I tend to think the whipped icing is the best part of any cupcake! It’s really cute that these are stuffed with sprinkles, too! I know my girls would get a HUGE kick out of these!

    Dr. Seuss day is so much fun ~ colorful too! The day is definitely celebrated at the local elementary schools seen as he spent so much time here. There is even a museum dedicated to him. These look great and have the ability to be versatile ~ can we say Spring and Easter?! Fill them with sprinkles or other sweets and can keep the colors the same 😀
