How To Decorate Popcorn Cupcakes
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- Whipped Cream or white frosting; this is the base for marshmallow ’popcorn’
- Red and White Striped Paper to make custom popcorn cupcake wrappers, or small popcorn cupcake wrappers
- Marshmallows (miniature)
- Yellow Food Coloring Paint or Spray
- Brown Food Coloring Paint or Spray
Take your miniature marshmallows and snip them with your kitchen scissors. Don’t cut all the way through. This is what makes the marshmallows look like ’popcorn.’ You don’t really have to cut them if you’re trying to save time; you can still use the marshmallows whole if you want.
Frost your cupcakes with a white icing as you normally would and arrange the marshmallows on top in such a way that it will look like a pile of popcorn.
Take your yellow food coloring spray and spray lightly around the top to make it look as much like buttered popcorn as you like. If you like, you can add highlights with the brown food coloring…or not, it’s all up to you.
There you have it! Popcorn cupcakes! Wait, what? Yes, it really is that easy!
