    Cooks4_6's Note:

    My youngest daughter entered these into the fair a few years back and won a 2nd place ribbon. So cute! You can use your favorite cake batter and icing recipe. To make the popcorn band your will need scissors, white construction paper and blue and/or red markers, or you can create something on a color printer such as we did. You will also need a clean paintbrush to add "butter" to the "popcorn". I think this came from Family Fun Magazine.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 baked cupcake
    • 2 tablespoons white icing
    • 40 mini marshmallows (white or pastel yellow and white)
    • yellow food coloring (optional)


    1. 1
      Frost the cupcake with white icing. To create each piece of "popcorn," cut one mini marshmallow in half and squish the two pieces back together into a whole mini marshmallow, pinching firmly. Pile the finished popcorn onto the frosted cupcake.
    2. 2
      For a buttery look, either dilute a drop of yellow food coloring in water and brush it on with a clean paintbrush or mix pastel yellow marshmallows in with the white.
    3. 3
      To make the band, cut a strip of construction paper about 1 1/4 inches by 8 inches, or to fit your cupcake, and decorate as shown.
    4. 4
      If you're creating many cupcakes, design just one band and color photocopy it. Wrap the band around the cupcake and secure with tape.

      I made these for a cake walk and everyone LOVED them! They did turn out really cute. The only reason I left off one star is because they were SO time consuming. I only decorated 15 cupcakes and it took quite a bit of time to cut all the marshmallows up. I recommend having a second person help you. I used white and yellow marshmallows, cut an X in the side and pinched the ends together to open up the X. I was able to fit ~30 marshmallows on each. I drew 1/4cm lines with a red Sharpie 1/2cm apart on white cardstock, then made a few photocopies and cut into 3cm x 21cm strips. I'll make these again but solicit my DH for help, and will cut the mallows while watching a movie. It took that long!

      For my sons 4th birthday we did a backyard carnival and these were the highlight of the whole event. I made 4 dozen, so it took a few hours the night before to get them all frosted and topped with the mini marsh mellows. After the first dozen, I stopped cutting the marsh mellows completely in half and only cut 2/3rds of the way through. This was much easier, less time consuming, and it still gave the same effect.
