Thing One and Thing Two Cupcakes
Thing One and Thing Two, those blue-haired characters from the popular Dr. Seuss book The Cat in the Hat, deserve to have their own cupcake! This tasty treat is easily made and topped with a simple tag. A perfect dessert for a birthday party!
Servings 24 cupcakes
- 1 chocolate cake mix
- 1 c. buttermilk
- 1/2 c. vegetable oil
- 3 eggs
- 24 red cupcake liners
- 2 16oz cans vanilla frosting
- Wilton Royal Blue icing gel
- 1 M star frosting tip
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two muffin tins with 24 cupcake liners.
Combine cake mix, buttermilk, vegetable oil, and eggs in an electric mixer. Use an ice cream scoop to distribute cake mix evenly amongst the 24 cupcake liners, about 2/3 full. Bake 15-17 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Carefully remove from pans and place on a wire rack to cool.
Place frosting in a medium sized bowl. Use a butter knife to add a small amount of icing gel to the frosting. Mix well and add more gel as needed to make desired color of blue.
Affix a frosting bag with 1M star tip. Add frosting and pipe onto each cupcake. Top with a Thing 1 or Thing 2 topper. Serve and enjoy!
