Especially when said birthday party is one’s first “boy/girl” birthday party. Parties involving manicures, facials and tea parties just aren’t that appealing to the male gender. But candy, hotdogs, nachos, popcorn and movies certainly are!
|Turn your TV into a movie screen! I added a $2.00 extension rod and a clearance red curtain panel cut in half, tied back with ribbon for a fun movie theater feel! Total cost $4.50!|
Bake your favorite cupcake mix (homemade or store bought) according to recipe in cupcake liners, and allow to cool.
Frost with your favorite frosting (homemade or store bought). It does not have to be neat because you will be covering it with your “popcorn.” Be generous with the frosting though, so that the popcorn will adhere well to the top of the cupcake.
After frosting, place cupcakes in popcorn box cupcake holders.
Using a bag of miniature marshmallows, tear or cut marshmallows in half and stick cut sides back together twisting them a little to create the popcorn kernels. It takes a lot of these so we “cheated” and used regular marshmallows on the bottom and the “kernels” on the top.
For the look of butter, mix yellow food coloring in water to dilute and then with a clean paintbrush, brush food color lightly across the marshmallows. Before the food coloring dries, sprinkle with yellow sprinkles for the “salt.”
