Dr. Seuss Themed Cupcakes

November 27, 2011

My Retro Kitchen has transformed the famed Dr. Seuss book, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, into these cute cupcakes. These cupcakes are the perfect treat to serve at a child's birthday party.  They will absolutely love the bright colored frosting and edible goldfish. If you are searching for a creative yet easy cupcake idea, these Dr. Seuss inspired cupcakes may be just what you're looking for.


1 box yellow cake mix (or a batch of your favorite yellow cake), prepare as directed for cupcakes
24 large cupcake liners (I used 12 large and 24 mini)
1 tub white frosting (or a batch of your favorite white frosting)
blue food coloring, I highly recommend AmeriColor
1 bag of mini goldfish crackers
blue sugar crystals
mini pearl candies (look in your local cake supply store)

Cupcakes are so cute, what was the actual color name for the Americolor you used to die frosting

Thank you so much for the compliments! The color I used was Royal Blue #102. I think I used about 5-6 drops to achieve that color. Just be sure to mix well in between each addition!
