This week at preschool they have been celebrating Dr. Seuss.
If you know anything about us, we HEART Dr. Seuss!
What a perfect opportunity to have some fun.
Now, I'm going to write a disclaimer.
I love photography.
I am an amateur.
But I have a good camera.
Sometimes the photos aren't the best.
With 3 munchkins running around, I am always in a hurry.
So that is the reason.
I wish I could take better inside photos.
This is something I need to learn.
But again, time constraints don't allow me to delve deeper in to my passion.
So if you are every wondering why I have some great photos
and then some not so great photos, this is the reason why.
Back to the post.
I found adorable FREE printable tags/cupcake toppers.
And I wanted to make some crazy cupcakes.
It became a family project.
* White cake mix
* White icing (you choose your flavor)
* Food coloring
* Plastic containers to mix in
* Cupcake liners
* Toothpicks (or lollipop sticks)
* Hot glue gun
* Fiskars Easy Squeeze Punch - Scallop Edge Circle 2"-2.5"
* Card Stock
Go ahead and follow the instructions on the cake mix.
You may need 1 to 2 boxes depending on how many you want to make.
I used 2 boxes and made 41 cupcakes.
With the white cake mix, fill about 1/4.
You are leaving room for the colored portion of the cupcake.
Pour a bit of the cake mix in to different plastic containers.
Pour in the food coloring of your choice.
The more you mix, the darker it will become.
I chose 3 different colors.
Then I filled each cupcake up to the half way point.
I put them in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes.
In the meantime, I printed out the cupcake toppers.
I snagged them for free from Home Confetti.
Printed on card stock and then cut out with my handy scrapbooking device.
From there, I put a dab of hot glue on the back
and rolled the toothpick around in it.
I laid them face down and let the glue dry.
Take your white icing and put some in a small plastic container.
I used the 4 oz Glad container.
Mix in your food coloring.
Spread the icing on the cupcakes.
Stick in your cupcake toppers.
You are finished.
Easy enough for any mommy or daddy to do that isn't experienced in the way of crafting.
The kids and teachers LOVED them when we delivered the cupcakes this morning.
And it is delish.
Oh, the kids will get a suprise when they bite in to them.
All that pretty color!
