Directions for Buttercream Caramel Popcorn Cupcakes
Step 1: Prepare cake mix using directions on box. Pour batter into cupcake tin to create cupcake shape and pop into the oven.
Step 2: While the cupcakes are baking, download and print the printable popcorn cupcake wrappers. Cut out the liners and add glue or tape to the tabs to seal into the circular shape. Once you have all of the popcorn cupcake wrappers created, set aside.
Step 3: Once the cupcakes are baked and ready, let cool for 15-20 minutes. Once sufficiently cooled, use a spatula to spread the buttercream frosting on top. This will serve as a delicious adhesive for the popcorn.
Step 4: Once frosted, add the caramel popcorn! When you feel like you have enough popcorn on your cupcakes, simply slip into the popcorn cupcake wrappers and enjoy!
