Dr. Seuss' The Lorax Cupcake Toppers: Trees and Mustaches for All!

I’m happy to admit that my little Truffula Treets experiment didn’t quite turn out as well as I had anticipated.

What was supposed to be a tree-looking treat for the upcoming Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax movie instead turned into a … mess.

A delicious mess, yes. But a mess nonetheless.

Enter CraftyAmy over at The New Home Ec for the save.

She made some seriously wicked Lorax cupcake toppers and gave me inspiration for making my own. While I especially liked her Lorax head treatment, I thought you could take it one teeny tiny step beyond: cupcake mustache toppers.

You take the same basic ingredients, cupcakes, craft supplies, but then you make miniature versions of The Lorax mustaches and insert those on top.

Voila! A fun craft you can use not only for cupcake decoration but also for photo fun — because what 5-year-old girl doesn’t like running around with a Lorax mustache? Or, if you’re pressed for time like I am this week, you can do what I did: forget the cupcake and just insert the mustache topper into a store-bought cookie.

Lame, I know. But it’s definitely a fun way to read the book, pretending to be The Lorax … so long as the sugar crash doesn’t leave you like me: asleep. Oh well, at least the mustache can babysit for 20 minutes….
