Popcorn Cupcakes

These cute little cupcakes are so fun to make!  I'm warning you though, they take a LOT of time!

Cake Mix (and the water, oil, and eggs that go with it!)
White Frosting
Mini Marshmallows
Yellow Food Coloring

First, bake the cupcakes as directed until they test done.  Let cool.

Frost your cupcakes.  LISTEN to me when I say, frost them as you go!  You do not want to do them all at once like I did because then the marshmallows have a hard time sticking to the icing.

To Make the Popcorn

Cut the marshmallows in half.

Firmly press them back together so your fingers are basically touching.  This creates the popcorn-like dimple.

Stick 'em onto the icing!

Fill the cupcake with as many as you can.

Dilute yellow food coloring with water.  You want it to be really light so start with one drop only and work your way up if need be.

Paint the yellow "butter" on the marshmallow popcorn.

There you have it!  The marshmallows taste really good on the cupcakes!  These would be great for a movie night party. 

I'm linking these up to all of my favorite linky parties!
