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.

  1. OMG I feel gaga for your cupcakes! They look adorable, I would resist eating it and just stare with it.

  2. OMG I love this. I am duch a Dr. Seuss fan. We have the same bday. My Baby shower was Dr. Seuss theme anfd this post just made my day

  3. OMG Cupcakes are my weakness… or at least I love eating the tops of them, I like a little cake with my icing, lol. These look amazing!

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

  5. 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!

  6. 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 😀

  7. Those cupcakes look extremely good. I bet the icing tastes yummy. 😍 Great snack for kids. Love the images. And they are very colorful.makes the blog pop.

    1. There are lots of different types. I do like to use the ready made ones and add colour to them or you can make it from a scratch.

  8. Sooo cute!! Do you know if these will travel well? Was thinking of making these for my kids class! I’m guessing they’ll have to stay refrigerated?

    1. I think they may need to be refrigerated so maybe speak to the teacher beforehand. Speaking from experience as a teacher myself.

      1. So I tried making these but how do you keep the cool whip frosting stiff? They were too liquidy to pile up the colors and then it melted so quickly. Any tips? Thanks!

        1. Make sure you using Cool Whip and not real whip cream. The longer the cool whip sits out the wetter it’ll get so be quick piping it on and then stick them back into the refrigerator. It’s best to make them and eat them the same day but these were kept in the fridge and they were fine the next day. A another big tip is make sure the cupcakes are COMPLETELY cooled before piping!
