Dr. Seuss Treat Toppers

Happy Birthday Dr.Seuss!

This day is a very special day for all children book fans alike. Whether we read them to our children, to ourselves, or simply admire our vintage collections, there is something to celebrate in the name of Dr. Seuss. This legendary children's author, poet, and cartoonist, brought his world to life with favorite stories such as the Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and the Lorax (which debuts in theaters today!)

So many celebrations are already in place for this very special day. Celebrations such as Read across America, Pajama Day at local schools, and visiting the Dr. Seuss Memorial in his birth place of Springfield, Massachusetts visit www.catinthehat.org.

So why not take this day to celebrate a very special person who is not only remembered in our childhood past time, but will be in our children's childhood past time for years to come.

Here at Saltbox House, we would like to share some fun ideas for treat toppers. These can be put on top of anything from cupcakes to rice crispy treats and made into anything from cake pops to cookies. If you make these from softened candies, you can make them into suckers as well.

Here is some things we recommend for making these edible treats:
  • Fondant or try Marshmallow Fondant For Tara's Marshmallow recipe click here
  • Marzipan
  • Softened colored Tootsie Rolls, Air Heads, Starburst, Taffy, etc.
  • *Edible Play dough
  • *Marshmallow putty
*Some of these recipes we do not have on this blog, yet. We hope to get these on here as we make them.

The best way to practice, is to use play dough!

 With so many characters to create, it is no wonder we can keep creating fun ideas for every day!
