Dr. Suess Cupcakes

For my son's first birthday we decided to go with a Dr. Suess theme. This was my very first time experimenting with fondant and painting on fondant. I felt like a little kid playing with silly putty, that part was awesome. I made the fondant using a recipe I found online using marshmallows so it was pretty easy to work with. I had a little trouble with the black paint and getting that just right but I learned it was probably because my fondant was a little too greasy in some places. Half of the cupcakes are chocolate and half are carrot cake.
