I'm not sure if I understand the question, but here is the popcorn cake that I make. I omit the peanuts due to allergies.

I have never made a popcorn cake, but have done cupcakes. I used mini marshmallows, snipped an X in the top, took a small paintbrush and dabbed a little yellow coloring (used Wilton lemon yellow, I think) in the X. It takes about 10 mini marshmallows per cupcake to make it look like a full bag. The "popcorn" is very time consuming to make. If you have a Cub Scout, maybe he can help..

Here is a link to my cupcakes, HTH

thanks linedancer, that was what I was looking for. While I was looking over this forum, someone was wondering about Duff's roses, and at the satin ice website, there was a tutorial on how to do the "popcorn" out of marshmallows. Thanks for all the help.

I made cupcakes that looked like popcorn on top and placed them into a popcorn bowl.

Used mini marshmallows...white ones and yellow ones.

Take one marshmallow and cut into three pieces and place in a clover type pattern on cookie sheet... then glue a whole marshmallow on in the center.... I used all white and then drizzled yellow icing that I microwaved to make thinner, over the bunch to look like butter... but you can just use white and yellow mini marshmallows to achieve the look. I got the idea out of a book called "hello cupcake".

I would post a picture but not too sure how to do that yet...but the picture is on here under my gallerie.
