I recently saw an episode of Ace of Cakes where Duff made a bubble gum machine and used real bubble gum instead of fondant made ones.

My great-neice is having a movie theme bday party and I am going to make the popcorn and movie reel. My ? is: How would real popcorn taste on top of the cake? Just a thought icon_rolleyes.gif

I think it would taste great! A nice mixture of sweet and salty. I love eating popcorn with chocolate.

Ditto! Sweet. Salty. Scrumptious.

I agree it would be really cool.

I would simply make sure the popcorn is the last thing added to the cake, because if it sits on the cake it will attract and or absorb a lot of moisture.

Good luck.

I did a popcorn cake for a church function, and it went over really well! One thing i did though was make the popcorn rk treat style so i could mold it however i want, plus it tasted even better!

I don't have the pictures on here ( at least i don't think so! icon_redface.gif ) but they are on my blog if you care to take a peek

good luck, I am sure it is going to be fabulous! icon_biggrin.gif

Could you maybe do a fondant bowl or those cute red/white stripe bags out of fondant and then fill them with real popcorn? That way it wouldn't affect the taste of the whole cake, but still be really cute.

I prefer this idea also. icon_smile.gif
The movie reel could be cake and the popcorn can be placed in fondant popcorn bags or a popcorn tub/bucket.

Make sure you let the popcorn cool so you don't melt anything on the cake!

A little off subject, but does anyone have instructions on how to make popcorn out of gumpaste/fondant? (I dont want to make them out of marshmellows...they are for a fake cake)

I love the idea of making a fondant bowl too and just filling it with popcorn! That would be cool!

I like this idea too. I know that salty sweet is a good combo, as is seen in my thighs and butt, however I think it might be a texture thing. The texture of the cake/icing and popcorn dont seem to mix to me. Either way I know the cake will look great and we cant wait to see the pics!!!
