March is Reading Month 2012, Tip #2: Seuss It Up!

We were driving home last week when Fran announced that we should have a cake on March 2 for Dr. Seuss's birthday

It will be a busy week with MIRM starting, Mr. TRWH finishing his travels, and report card assessments creeping in, but my goal is to make these fabulous cupcakes from Confessions of a Food Bride:

I ordered the cotton candy. I have a can of Sprinkles Red Velvet on hand in case of general slacker-ness. (And I would not be ashamed to pick up a 6 pack of Red Velvet from The Cupcake Station in the cover of darkness and smoosh the cotton candy on top.  Ta-da!) I've talked myself into the idea that making them on the weekend is a better idea so the kids can help, and we'll see if the cotton candy gets here in time.

Regardless, we will serve green eggs and turkey bacon for dinner!

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss. Your art, rhythms, and rhymes have shaped readers for years.

Update: Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes, 2012!

Double Seuss Cupcakes!  His teacher made Cat in the Hat ones!
