Dr. Seuss Thing 1 and Thing 2 Cupcakes

Oh, the places you will go! I received this Dr. Seuss book as a high school graduation present. I grew to love Dr. Seuss’s work as a little girl and now as a parent of three boys. When the boys were little, I would buy them all the books and even took the kids to Dr. Seuss playland inside of Universal Studios

Directions:

  1. Before starting the decorating process, ensure that your chocolate cupcakes are cool to the touch.
  2. Use an electric mixer to make your buttercream.
  3. On medium speed, beat together butter, confectioners’ sugar, and milk.
  4. Gradually increase the beater’s speed to high.
  5. Once the buttercream is formed (smooth and forms semi-stiff peaks), separate into two bowls.
  6. Color one bowl of buttercream red and the other, blue.
  7. Attach Wilton’s 1M icing tip to a piping bag.
  8. Place the piping bag into a mug or a cup. Scoop each buttercream into the same piping bag. Keep each color on its own side.
  9. Frost each cupcake.
  10. Roll out your fondant on a clean working surface so that it’s about ¼ of an inch thick.
  11. Using a circular cookie cutter (about 2 inches in diameter), cut out 12 circles.
  12. On six circles, write: “Thing 1” with your black marker. Write “Thing 2” on the remaining fondant circles.
  13. Place one fondant piece on each frosted cupcake. Add a bit more frosting behind the fondant so that a portion of the buttercream sticks out.

Serve and enjoy!

“Oh, the Places You’ll Go with reading and education. Farmers Insurance, a brand that stands for knowledge, experience and making people smarter about insurance, is honoring Dr. Seuss on his 115th birthday and celebrating Read Across America Day on March 2 with an integrated campaign across TV, digital and social media.

To support and promote early childhood reading through the legacy of Dr. Seuss, Farmers has created an animated read-along of the New York Times best-seller Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Voiced by Farmers spokescharacter Professor Burke (Academy Award winner JK Simmons), the video is available through digital and social channels, as well as included in the National Education Association’s library of resources for teachers to use in activities marking the day.”

Farmers has also created a 60-second journey, in the visual and narrative style of Dr. Seuss, through the world of strangely Seussian insurance claims they’ve seen and covered. The animated spot features reimagined claim stories also voiced by JK Simmons as Professor Burke and carries the message that “the more that you see, the more that you’ll know,” reminding people to go out and experience and learn more about the world. 

 How do you plan to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday this year? Drop me a line and let me know!
