Popcorn Cupcakes for Movie Night or Oscars Party



















Want a sweet treat for family movie night or an Oscars party? 
Make popcorn cupcakes!
They are super easy, but a little time consuming.  I think they are so cute it's worth it though.
I made my own cupcake liners using scrapbook paper and a circle punch.

Here is what you do:

Make your favorite cupcake recipe or use a box mix.  Let cupcakes cool completely.

If you are making the popcorn box cupcake liners like I did, it is a good idea to put them on now and then pipe your frosting onto the cupcake.  They will look much neater this way.  Simply wrap them around the cupcake and use double-sided tape to keep the sides together.

Frost cupcakes with white frosting using a pastry bag and large star tip.

With scissors, make a tiny cut on each of the four sides of a mini marshmallow.  Twist the marshmallows into a popcorn like shape and then gently place them onto the frosting. 

Keep making popcorn marshmallows until you ask yourself "will my family really appreciate all this effort"?!?!?!?! and then make some more :)

Happy movie night!
