For Carson’s 1st Birthday we did a Dr. Seuss themed Birthday party which was such a fun theme to plan. I’ve had a lot of requests for my recipes for the party food and this post is long overdue! You can get my free Dr. Seuss food sign printables, fonts, and lots more ideas in my previous posts. Now on to the recipes!

For Carson’s “smash cake” I did the Cat’s hat. I simply baked four 8″ round cakes from a box mix and then stacked them on one another. Be sure to level the top of the cake with a knife to ensure you have a flat, stackable surface. Use a little frosting to “glue” them together. Once they are stacked then you can frost the layers with white and red frosting. I used canned frosting and used red gel food color to dye the white frosting red. I then used pull ‘n peel licorice to divide the layers. It was simple and while it isn’t the most beautiful cake I’ve ever seen, it fit the theme!

What would a Dr. Seuss party be without the green eggs and ham? I made deviled eggs and simply dyed the yellow yolk mixture green with gel food color. Use any deviled eggs recipe and then dye the yellow mixture before piping it back into the eggs.

For my ham I baked a 10# ham in a turkey bag following the instructions on the turkey bag. Before cooking I placed the ham in the turkey bag, used toothpicks to stick pineapple rings and maraschino cherries to the ham and glazed it with a simple brown sugar and pineapple juice glaze. It was delicious!

I just used goldfish crackers for this!

This is a favorite recipe around here. It’s highly addicting and way too good to be this easy to make :)

Simply cut up strawberries and bananas and put them on skewers to make cute Cat in the Hat skewers!

These pretzels are super easy and also quite addicting. You can also make this recipe with the little oyster crackers instead.

I made my favorite Wacky Wild Rice Soup recipe which is SO delicious! Click the link for the recipe.

To create this fun Jell-O bowl simply make blue Jell-O in the bowl and then add Sweedish Fish to the top once it is almost set.

The Beezlenut Splash was a big hit too! We had to refill it several times. Get my Beezlenut Splash recipe by clicking the link!

For this WhoFoo Fluff on a Stick I simply put Jumbo marshmallows on sticks and then dipped them in melted almond bark that I had dyed blue with food coloring. I then added the sprinkles and let them dry in a jar just as they are displayed here.
