I've received such a huge response to the original popcorn cupcakes, that I wanted to provide some 'how to' information.
Here are the materials you will need:
Yellow coloring gel
Wilton Nut Cups
Regular cupcake liners
Sticky address labels
- Fill cupcake liners 1/2 full and bake as usual.
Using red pen, color every-other fold on the nut cups.
Create the popcorn label using your computer and sticky address labels - cut out.
Stick the label onto the nut cup liner.
After cupcakes cool, insert the cupcake (still in the regular cupcake liner) into the nut cup liner.
Ice cupcakes with thin layer of icing.
Cut a criss-cross pattern 1/2 way down the ends of the mini-marshmallows.
Stick the marshmallows into the icing.
Paint the tops with yellow gel coloring. I diluted mine on a wet paper towel.
Those are awesome! Do you mind if I copy these?? I run a cooking club for my elementary students, and I'm doing cake decorating with them next month! They'd love these!
Awesome - thanks!!
thank you so much for doing this. I've always wondered how it was dont.
You are a real sweetheart
Thank you for sharing. My son is having his party at the movie theater this year and I'm sure these will be a hit.
So cute! Great instructions too!
THANK YOU FOR SHARING I'M EXCITED I THINK THESE OR SO CUTE!!!
Thank you so much for the tutorial!!!
Thanks for sharing your information....I have been wanting to make some of these. They are really cute. We have an old theater in town that is being restored back to it's original condition, and there will be a Grand Opening when it's ready. I would love to make some of these.
These are amazing! Thank you so much for sharing this with us all!
So cute! Thank you!
I went to Michaels this weekend to buy the nut cups and I noticed they changed to cup lines.
The old way are the ones you have in the photo with the wide lines and the new ones are lots of long thin line going down. I like the old ones.....but I also like the new one better cause the outside is not as waxy and you can color the lines a lot better and color them once instead of twice like I had to with the old ones it's more of a paper feel. But the inside of the cup has a plastic liner I don't think it's wax I think is plastic so I don't know if you can make the cupcake in the cup itself.
This is how they look now:
I colored one to see how it looks and they look really good... I'll post photo once I'm done tomorrow. I have an order for Thursday....
**Please excuse me if this cups are not new but they are to me I don't buy them often so I just notice that they changed them I always have gotten the other one and know they don't have them at the store I go to...
thanks for the tutorial
Thanks for the wonderful tutorial! Here is a link to my photo:
One thing I learned is not to over fill the cupcakes, better to under fill. It doesn't look right when my cupcakes peek over the top of my nut cup.
Thanks so cute can't wait to try them.
I made these for my children's classroom year end party last June. 45 of them took us (DH and myself) a couple of hours to cut and attach the marshmallows ... and we didn't cover them as much as you have - but I think my cups were bigger since they weren't the Wilton nut cups (I got them from a paper supply factory outlet). There were closer to a medium sized cupcake. I was also told that you can hit the marshmallows with a quick blast from a hot hairdryer to 'melt' them a bit.
Took several hours to just colour the cups with red Sharpie pens, too.
I also flavoured the BC with Lorann's butter flavouring. You could smell it when you opened the cake box lids. Mmmmm.
There's a pic in my photos, if you're interested.
Thanks, that was very generous of you to post this.
