With award season upon us, film festivals kicking off and the Oscars right around the corner, planning to host a movie-related party is something on several people’s agenda. In wanting to have an option for something outside of the popcorn box, and a really clever centerpiece idea (as well as a delicious dessert), I decided to bake popcorn cupcakes. 

I was at first debating whether or not they should be popcorn flavored, but after a long discussion, I went with the classic vanilla approach to satisfy all taste buds (and to avoid a potential stomach ache).

Vanilla BatterI lined the cupcakes with a basic white colored liner. To really provide these cupcakes with the red and white signature colored popcorn box look, I found these wraps that I added to them once the cupcakes were complete.

Finishing TouchUsing Jet-Puffed mini-marshmallows, I took a knife and gently made a basic “x” through the marshmallows. It was really neat to see how they went from marshmallow to ‘popcorn!’

The KernalI made a basic buttercream frosting and frosted the cupcakes before I added the marshmallows on top of them. The added touch, to provide ‘butter’ to the ‘popcorn,’ I sprinkled yellow colored shimmer dust upon the cupcakes.

They turned out darling!

Combine them with some cute Oscar or movie reel sugar cookies, and your party will be a true hit! I boxed these beauties up and they were good to go to a meeting for the Cleveland International Film Festival.
