I can remember watching Dr.Seuss’ “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” every December since I was little. The 1957 book was adapted into a short film during the 1960’s. It alway mesmerized me, these cupcake where inspired by The Grinch.
These DIY Whoville cupcakes not only a favorite of mine, but an easy and fun baking/decorating project for the entire family. The finished cupcakes are embellished with a fondant spiral tree, no-cut roses, mini holly leaves, and silver dragees
