Thing 1, Thing 2, cupcakes for you!


First off, let me tell you this is NOT my intellectual property! My mom's friend Denise sent me a picture of some of these little cuties that she made for her child's class!!!

But, regardless, I will claim this as my ever-so-cute-I-am-the-best-mom-in-the-world creation!!!

So, so, crazy easy to make!


Chap insisted that we make these using Red Velvet Cake. (interjection) I am sad to say that I am 34 years old, and JUST THIS YEAR realized that Red Velvet Cake is just chocolate cake...turned red! duh! That's why I love it so much!

I digress!

So, bake the cake according to directions. Top with white icing. I used solid red cupcake papers.

I took a sheet of scrapbook paper (actually a sheet I did not like, and used the back!). Then I just stamped the words Thing 1 and Thing 2....made a circle and cut them out!




I am sure some of you techies could make a pdf file, and if you do...will you send it to me!

Anyways, then, I just hot glued the Thing 1 & 2 circles onto the paper. (sure wish I already had these HOT GLUE HELPERS!)

Top with some wild sprouts of blue cotton candy...and tada!!!

Now, look at all of these cute THINGS waiting for their hair...I will add the hair just before taking them to his class. If I add it now, it will all shrivel up...ask me how I know?!

So, how cute are they!!!

I will make them again,
I will make them, times 10.
I will make them from a box.
I will make their hair blue locks.
I will make them, yes indeed.
I will make them...kids to feed :)

Happy Dr Seuss Day to you!!

Oh my goodness! Wish I would have known about these last year while I was still teaching. My co-worker and I dressed as Thing 1 and 2 for Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss' B'day. My second graders would've loved this! I'll have to remember this adorable treat once my GG goes to school! Stopping by from Follow Me Fridays. Happy Easter!
