My daughter is having a b-day in two weeks. She wants High School Musical cake. I have already found some GREAT ideas from fellower ccer's. I have ONE do you make the popcorn? Do you use fondant and just shape it?

When I have had to make popcorn in the past I took mini marshmallows and ripped the tops of them to make them look like popcorn. Have fun and good luck!

I've seen it done with royal icing piped into large and small "kernels", then painted on the bottoms to look like the yellow part. The marshmallows are a good idea, though. Less piping!

Take mini marshmellows, snip a small "x" in the top and paint a little bit of watery yellow colouring on the inside of the x!

I used mini marshmallows and cut (with scissors) one end in a X shape. Then squeezed the opposite end to "open" up the "kernel." I spread out all the kernels and used the canned spray color to make it look buttery.

I do mine with fondant, just like you said; scrunch it up and color it with petal dusts.. here is a picture:
