Our family is a bit obsessed with popcorn. In fact, we pop some at least 4 times a week. My husband got a theater-like popper for Christmas last year and I bought the really buttery popcorn packets from Orson Gygi and now we can’t stop ourselves! When my friend made this popcorn cake for her sons Blue & Gold banquet I fell in love instantly! It would be so fun to make for a carnival themed party, movie watching party or just a fun get together with friends!
She started by baking four 9″ round cakes – you really could do any flavor you want since it will all be covered in frosting.
Then layer and frost all four cakes and add pieces of red licorice along the sides for the popcorn box stripes.
Last, she heaped real buttery popcorn on top and added a paper popcorn sign to the front. I’ve also seen others use caramel popcorn or marshmallows – but I happen to love salty/sweet desserts and think this looks delicious!
If you’re looking for something more individual sized to serve – check out these adorable popcorn cupcakes! They are the same concept only – if you hop on over to her site she has a FREE printable for the cupcake wrappers! I love free printables, they make decorating so easy!
