I keep seeing these cupcakes all over Pinterest. If you don’t know what Pinterest is, you are missing out! It’s my favorite new obsession; I don’t know how I ever lived without it. Pinterest is a virtual pinboard; a place to keep all your great internet finds indexed and accessible. There is no need to bookmark a crafty project or print out every recipe you want to try. Just pin it to your personalized boards and voila! It’s right there for you when you need it. I can spend hours browsing other pinners pins, it’s really addictive. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. As I was saying, I have seen these popcorn cupcakes all over Pinterest and I obviously had to pin the idea. I knew that I would make them at some point in the near future and then Purim came around. What a perfect opportunity to try these cupcakes!
The “popcorn” is actually made from mini marshmallows that I snipped to give them the fluffy air popped look. The “popcorn” looked good but it was missing something: the butter! So I pulled out my trusty airbrush and hit them with a shot of yellow and gold food coloring. My husband actually thought it was real popcorn and told me I was weird for putting it on a cupcake. Now I wasn’t really going to make these cupcakes until I found the perfect containers at Michael’s Art’s and Craft’s Store.
Once I saw these cardboard bags I knew I could fill them with the cutest popcorn cupcakes. Two regular sized cupcakes stacked on top of one another fit perfectly. Then the whole bag fit nicely inside tall clear bags I always have on hand.
My cute little packages weren’t complete until they had sugar cookie movie ticket tags.
Here is Charlie in his cool biker dude costume. He is a lot bigger than last year, but just as cute! Happy Purim!
