Feeling sick of sugar and chocolate yet? I'm not, but that's because I can't eat it! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and enjoyed special time with your family and friends. We had a quiet Easter over at the Whimsical House.... pottering in the garden, relaxing on the deck, catching up with family and friends, lots of great food and a bit of painting - which turned disastrous. Visit me on Facebook to see what happened! I will tell that story in a bit more depth another day... because today I don't want to think or talk about it!
However, I do want to talk about these YUMMY Caramel Popcorn Cupcakes. They are a re-hash of an old recipe, but I just wanted to share them again with you because they were SO popular.
They make a great birthday cake or novelty cake for a "movie themed" party.
There are a few steps to making these, but it is a pretty easy cupcake to make and decorate, requiring only a medium baking skill. The finished effect is worth the little bit of effort you have to go to with making the different components.
To make your "popcorn" inspired cupcake papers, I simply bought a pack of red striped cupcake papers from this shop on EBAY. To get the popcorn logo I cut it out from these free printable cupcake wrappers HERE. I stuck the "popcorn" logo on the cupcakes after the cake had been cooked, just in case it melted off during the cooking process.
