Dr. Seuss Cupcakes – Horton Hears a Who Craft

  • Author: Ashley at Frugal Coupon Living


Celebrate America’s favorite author on March 2nd with these easy Dr. Seuss Cupcakes. This Horton Hears a Who craft has an elephant trunk holding a pink clover to represent the speck of Whoville, a microscopic community only Horton can hear. “A person’s a person, no matter how small!” 




  1. Place your white frosting in a small bowl and add 2-3 drops of black food coloring. Mix well. Add more coloring if you would like it a darker gray.
  2. Put your colored frosting in a piping bag or large baggie. Snipe off the corner.
  3. Using your prepared cupcakes, pipe frosting in a circular motion around the cupcake.
  4. Starting at the back of the cupcake, take the frosting and make a vertical line down the center. This line represents Horton’s elephant trunk nose. Repeat step with remaining cupcakes.
  5. Set your frosted cupcakes aside.
  6. To make a truffula tree, take an unwrap sucker and dip it in some water. Shake excess water off and lay on a plate. Sprinkle on the edible glitter, make sure to rotate sucker as you go.
  7. Stick it in the end of his “trunk” so it looks like Horton is holding the truffula tree. Repeat step until all your Horton Hears a Who trees are complete.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
