I simply couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share with you one of the cutest cupcakes around. These perky pastel Truffula Tree Cupcakes are inspired by the hit movie The Lorax. And going along the earth-friendly theme, these sweet treats are vegan. Fluffy pink vegan cotton candy tops a bamboo skewer – burrowed into pastel green frosting over top a brown “earthy” chocolate cupcake. This creative cupcake recipe was posted by Annie Shannon of Meet the Shannons..

The Lorax. The new animated movie The Lorax made over 70 million in ticket sales at the box office opening weekend (according to the NY Times.) That means an entire new generation of kids (and adults) are being inspired by a movie with a message. A message which Annie, summed up on her blog, “(From The Lorax, I learned that).. being a human being was a privilege, I also learned that it came with a responsibility to protect those who couldn’t protect themselves and that included their homes..”

Get The Recipe. You can get the recipe for this treat over at Annie’s blog: Lorax Cupcakes on Meet the Shannons.

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better…its not.” – Dr Seuss (The Lorax)
