History of Dr. Seuss and Green Eggs and Ham
Dr. Seuss is one of the most popular children’s book authors of all time. His books are known for their rhyming text and unique illustrations. Green Eggs and Ham is one of his most famous books. It was published in 1960 and has sold over 200 million copies worldwide.
The book was written during a bet between Dr. Seuss and his publisher, Bennett Cerf. Cerf bet Seuss that he couldn’t write a book using only 50 different words. Seuss took on the challenge and wrote Green Eggs and Ham using just 50 different words.
Since its publication, Green Eggs and Ham has become a classic children’s book. It has been translated into over 20 languages and adapted into a popular cartoon series. Each year on Dr. Seuss’ birthday, March 2nd, people celebrate by reading his books and eating green eggs and ham!
In order to make these fun and festive Dr Seuss cupcakes, you will need the following ingredients:
-1 box of green cake mix
-1 can of green frosting
-1 package of mini marshmallows
-1 tube of black decorating gel
-Green food coloring (optional)
To start, you will need to bake the cupcakes according to the instructions on the cake mix box. Once they are baked and cooled, you can begin decorating them. If you would like your frosting to be a bit greener, you can add a few drops of green food coloring. Then, simply pipe or spread the frosting onto the cupcakes.
Next, it’s time to add the mini marshmallows. These will be used for the ‘eggs’ in our Green Eggs and Ham cupcakes. For the best results, place 3-4 marshmallows on each cupcake. Finally, use the black decorating gel to create little ‘ham’ pieces on top of the marshmallows. And that’s it! Your Green Eggs and Ham cupcakes are now ready to enjoy!
