Oscar Night Cupcakes

When I posted this photo last night, several wanted to know the recipe.  Here you go!


  • Vanilla box cake mix and ingredients needed (or your preferred cupcake recipe)
  • Red and white striped cupcake liners
  • Vanilla frosting
  • Mini marshmallows (~20 per cupcake)
  • Kitchen scissors


  1. Preheat oven and make cake batter according to the directions. Pour batter into cupcake liners, about 3/4 of the way. Bake for designated time.
  2. In the meantime, make your marshmallow popcorn. Simply cut to make “X” or “T” shapes — varying the cuts looks more natural.

  3. Once cupcakes are done, let them cool and frost each. Next, place the “popcorn” onto the frosting, starting with the outer edges then the center. Make sure those on the outer edge are tilted, facing out, to look like the popcorn is spilling out. Each cupcake will need about 20. Then they’re ready to serve!
