Dr. Suess Cupcakes From Cupcakes Take the Cake

Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, would be 107 today. We’re celebrating this beloved author with recipes that match up with some of his best-known books. Oh, the dishes we’ll cook!

And to Think That I Saw it On Mulberry Street

And to Think That I Saw it On Mulberry Street
If at first you don’t succeed . . . Seuss’s first book, And to Think That I Saw it On Mulberry Street, was rejected by 28 publishers before finally finding a home in 1937. The perfect compliment to Marco’s outlandish trip home? This Mulberry Street Burger. Geisel once said that he nearly burned the manuscript out of frustration; we recommend you keep the burger around medium.

Green Eggs and Ham
Geisel won a bet with his publisher when he wrote Green Eggs and Ham with just 50 different words. Kids (and kids at heart) have been curious about this emerald-hued combo ever since.  Have you tried it yet? You’ll love our chefs’ takes in a box, with a fox, in the air, or really, anywhere.

The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins
In this classic Seuss tale, junior cranberry salesman Bartholomew Cubbins attempts to take his hat off to greet the king, only to discover another and another on his head. Read it out loud with the family, then get in the kitchen and mix up Melissa’s cranberry-orange parfaits.

And of course, you can’t celebrate a birthday without cake! We love these Seussical sweets from Cupcakes Take the Cake (pictured above.)
