Dr. Seuss Cupcakes, Thing 1 & Thing 2 Printable Signs

As I've searched for Dr. Seuss party ideas, the most popular Dr. Seuss Dessert has been to make Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes with cotton candy for hair. I decided to try making my own this past week to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday for my kids and their cousins. 

They are really simple, try making your own. **Remember not to leave the cotton candy on longer than 15 minutes or it starts to melt.


QUICK CUPCAKE INDGREDIENTS:
I happened to find a small bag of cotton candy for 75 cents at my local grocery store (Dan's Supermarket) where they were having a Dr. Seuss party.  I just used a white cake box mix and white canned frosting.  (I like things quick and simple, especially for the kids who don't know the difference between a box mix verses making them from scratch. - Don't get me wrong. My husband's family are huge scratch-food bakers, we're just a little selfish and save the good stuff for the grown-ups who'll appreciate it.)

HOW TO:
I wrapped red construction paper (stappled in the back) around the wrapper then taped these Thing 1 & Thing 2 signs to the front.  Since I made my signs I thought I'd share them with you. Anyone else who'd like to try this treat can use this FREE printable.

We also had:
1 Fish 2 Fish (goldfish crackers in a plastic pretzel jar in the shape of a fish bowl).
 Pink Ink (pink Berry Lemonade).

I'm not sure where the original Cotton Candy Thing 1 & 2 Cupcakes started, but I first saw them on the Kitchen Dough Dough (posted June of 2009).


I showed them to my preschooler and asked him who that reminded him of.  His response:  The Haynes Sisters.  WHAT!!!??  You may not remember, but those are the sisters from the movie 'White Christmas" with the blue feather fans.  My sister and I dressed up and lip synched the song for Christmas two years ago, but that is who these cupcakes reminded him of.  - I guess my kids aren't as ObSEUSSed as I am. I better start reading more of 'The Cat in the Hat'.
Thing 1 & Thing 2, or The Haynes Sisters?

I leave a response when I appreciate a post on a site or if I have something to contribute
to the discussion. Usually it is triggered by the fire
displayed in the post I browsed. And on this post "Dr. Seuss Cupcakes, Thing 1 & Thing 2 Printable Signs".
I was excited enough to post a thought ;) I do have a few questions for you if it's okay. Is it just me or does it look like like a few of these responses appear like they are left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at additional sites, I would like to follow you. Would you make a list every one of all your community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
