Dr. Seuss Thing 1 & Thing 2 Cupcakes

Last year, we had a Dr. Seuss-themed Teacher Appreciation week at our school. Besides the obvious green eggs and ham, I needed to think of some theme appropriate food for our big teacher luncheon.

Two of our little friends dressed up as Thing 1 and Thing 2 for the school assembly, and they were so stinkin’ cute I had to turn them into cupcakes. I found the Thing 1 Thing 2 labels from this adorable store and the blue cotton candy from our local Sam’s Club.

This isn’t really a recipe (ahem, I may or may not have bought the cupcakes from the store), but a how-to-replicate kind of thing. Honestly, I assembled these in less than 20 minutes. And they were a total hit.

Until I tried to carry them outside. (Guess what happens to cotton candy when it meets warm humid air?)

I was so mad I couldn’t even take a picture. But I totally should have.  I didn’t post these because I just wanted to forget the whole thing, but now that I’ve had some space 🙂 I think I can do it.

Anyway, learn from me. Put your cotton candy on at the last minute in the same building you’ll be serving these in. You’ll be so much happier 🙂
