March is the time to celebrate Dr. Seuss!
I remember reading Dr. Seuss books as a child (and college student), but my fondest memories are from when I was pregnant with my first child. My husband travelled every week for work, so I spent my nights snuggled with our dog while I read different Dr. Seuss books aloud to my wiggly bump.
My favorite thing about “Bartholomew and the Oobleck” was always making my own Oobleck with cornstarch, water, and food coloring. It’s something I still love to do with my kids!
One of the preschool teachers from my daughters’ school asked if I could make some Dr. Seuss-themed treats. Of course! And the first book was “Bartholomew and the Oobleck!”
I had so many options to consider, but ultimately decided to go with a vanilla cake, filled with vanilla pudding (colored green), and topped with a green American buttercream.
(I almost drizzled them in green corn syrup, but thought about the preschoolers and how messy this could get!)
I had some extra green pudding and extra cupcakes with filling – two of them had the last bit of icing (aside from the one I sliced open for the picture). My daughters will definitely enjoy their desserts tonight!
