This blog is all about easy recipes, so I assure you, you can do this!
For these Dr. Seuss inspired cupcakes, all you'll need is:
-red cupcake liners
-white cake mix (you can use yellow but it doesn't look as good for the final product)
Bake your cupcakes in red liners as directed on the package (or use your own recipe). Allow to cool. Add a dollop of white frosting on each cupcake. Dye the remainder of your vanilla frosting blue (I used 9 drops of liquid food coloring) for the 'hair' on top.
I used my trusty cupcake decorator gun (affiliate links below) to make the swoosh of blue hair, but you can also use a piping bag or a spoon if you're gun-less.
And there ya have it! I found this idea on Pinterest but there was no link-back to the original creator, so I wish I could give credit where credit is due. Whoever thought of it, I love you. It saved me lots of time getting ready for Read Across America Day!
