Dr Seuss Cupcakes are so super fun and a fantastic way to get children interested in reading, in Dr Seuss and in the story book, The Cat In The Hat.

I really love rhyming books and Dr Seuss books are no exception. Seriously! I enjoy the rhythm and speed found in these children’s stories and I love to read the books to my daughter.

  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 small box strawberry gelatin
  • 1 tub whipped topping
  • 15 bananas
  • 3 pounds strawberries
  • Toothpicks

How To Make These Cat In The Hat Dr Seuss Cupcakes

Preheat the oven according the cake mix instructions and line a mini cupcake can with red and white cupcake liners.

Make cake mix according to package directions.

Separate the cake mix evenly into two bowls.

Add the strawberry gelatin to one bowl and stir to combine.

Spoon a teaspoon of plain white cake mix into each cupcake liner. Tap the pan on the counter to make sure the cake mix is even.

Spoon a teaspoon of strawberry flavoured cake mix on top of the white cake mix in each cupcake liner.

Bake the cupcakes according the package instructions. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

Top each cupcake with a small dollop of whipped topping.

Assemble the Cat in the Hat cupcake toppers by slicing all the strawberries and bananas into evenly thick slices.

Then, stack the fruit, alternating between bananas and strawberries, on a toothpick.

Be sure to leave half of the toothpick exposed on the bottom.

Assemble the cupcakes by sticking the toothpick into each cupcake.

Your cupcakes are ready to serve!
