Movie Themed .... Popcorn Cupcakes

My next cupcake for Birthday Dreams (bringing birthday's to homeless kids) was for a little girl wanting a movie themed party. I searched google for some ideas and saw a ton of Popcorn themed cupcake designs. I found popcorn sleeves on Amazon but I thought would save me a few bucks if I created my own. I found some free printables then I went to hobby lobby and found the carnival section. I found popcorn bags, perfect I can cut these down! I found out I could cut down each bag in thirds!


I found an idea on Drive by Decor how to cut the marshmallows to look like popped kernels. NOW this is time consuming but they turned out so real looking!

What you Need:
Bag of Mini Marshmallows
Wilton Yellow Color Mist
Popcorn Bags (or Popcorn cupcake wraps)
Frosted Cupcakes

For “popcorn”: 
1) About 1/3 of the way from one end of the marshmallow, cut half way through the marshmallow
2) . On the top of the opposite end of the marshmallow, make three cuts that meet in the middle in a peace sign pattern. Fan out the three parts that you just cut. 

I included my picture doing the marshmallows, also stop by her post her photos were very clear showing the steps. Now I got about a half bag done in about an hour and that was with my helper. I had 24 cupcakes to do. I cheated and cut half the bag and mixed with the other uncut ones.  For the color I used Wilton's yellow Color Mist to dye the marshmallows to look like they had butter on them.



Thanks for Stopping by!

  3. These may be the cutest cupcakes ever! What I love most is that they were made for a homeless kids birthday. I've volunteered at a homeless ministry for a couple years and it's the simple things like love and birthday parties that the kids love. Such an awesome thing you are doing!
