These Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes and matching Cat in the Hat cake were for a Dr. Seuss themed first birthday party. The mom asked me to make the cupcakes look like Thing 1 and Thing 2 from the Cat in the Hat. Originally she wanted blue cotton candy on the cupcakes as the hair, but after trying that out I realized that cotton candy dissolves very quickly from the moisture in the buttercream.
Instead I came up with this cute design. The cupcakes are red velvet baked in red cupcake papers. I frosted the cupcakes in white frosting making a smooth dome. I then used a #18 tip with blue frosting to pipe on the “hair”. I cut out little black eyes out of fondant for each cupcake.
