Little popcorn cupcakes!

I'm having my last taught class as a film student today, sad times. I really love my course. I was so glad to stay on another year and take a Masters course but this is it for now, even if I do a PhD it won't be taught. I thought I would make some cupcakes for the class, it's my industries and audiences class and we are watching the Korean film My Sassy Girl (which I am told is lovely despite the terrible name) so it should be a relaxing change to Battle Royale and Oldboy (even if they are two of my favourite films!).

I thought I would make the picture a little film themed too!

Since it's film class I wanted to make something a little themed. I went for cupcakes that look like little popcorn tubs. I found the template for the wrappers online on a website called Max and Otis designs. I bought them at $3 which is nothing, printed them on card and cut them out. I think they look great! The cupcakes are just vanilla, and then to make the popcorn effect on top I cut up marshmallows, toasted them and decorated them with a little yellow food colouring. I could have used real popcorn but it would have been soggy and gross, and the toasted marshmallows taste great.

I really should have cut these out more carefully looking at these photos, must wear my glasses next time!
