Happy Leap Day Cuties,

Shout out to those born on February 29th, your next turn up is in four years so make today count. Today we are getting ready for Dr. Seuss Day. Wednesday, March 2nd Dr. Seuss Day and everyone is invited to celebrate. Everyone should know who Dr. Seuss is no matter your age. Just in case you just landed on Earth today Theodor Seuss Geisel aka Dr. Seuss was a writer and illustrator known for his popular Dr. Seuss children’s books.  This day is filled with all things Dr. Seuss and reading, yes Read Across America.

You already know I love a theme and I love my DIY. I think the spring weather has me feeling all extra crafty and such. My daughter is four and she is excited about Dr. Seuss Day. My oldest is eleven and so he doesn’t care as much. He and I did fun things like this when he was her age. Because fair, I had to recreate some magic for the second child.  This is the second easiest Dr. Seuss craft you can do.

This is the easiest, laziest {I’m not judging} I forgot it was Dr. Seuss day and my kids are pissed or I was supposed to bring snacks to the school craft.

Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Cupcakes

You know how you have a vision then you are determined to create it. Yup, this was that thing for me.  The real trick is the icing so let me show you how to do it.

Whipped White Frosting + Food Coloring Gels

I purchased a container of white frosting; I got the whipped kind, I didn’t mean to but it worked. Don’t be like me, read the label. lol I purchased a four pack of spring colored food coloring gels. The pack came with Magenta {MimiCuteLips Pink}, Orange, Teal & Purple. I used three out of four because my color-swirl maxed out at three. Apparently four is doing too much. lol It doesn’t take a lot to get the color you want. Naturally use fewer drops for a pastel version of colors. I believe I used about two drops.

Next up pour the frosting into piping bags. You can also use sandwich bags, I use them as well. Tip: I put the bags inside of a mug, and then roll the bags over the edges. This makes the bag stationary and your pouring experience pleasant. Then your piping bags join forces like Transformers and you put the ColorSwirl tip on the end. Then go to work honey. hahahaha When I did the Key Lime Cupcakes I told you I wanted to get better at my frosting skills. HELLO BETTER!

    Everything looks delicious. I’m a big cupcake junkie! I didn’t celebrate because I teach high school but when I volunteered in children’s church we did and it was fantabulous. Oh the place you will go is my favorite book. We give it to the top 2 graduates now that I’m on the opening committee. It’s a kid’s book that keeps on giving.
