  • Small paint brush
  • bowl


  • 12 Vanilla cupcakes
  • 1 container Vanilla frosting
  • Yellow food coloring and water
  • Mini Marshmallows


  • Use you favorite cupcake recipe and bake up a batch of cupcakes. After the cupcakes cool, add some frosting. Start twisting mini marshmallows to make your pieces of "popcorn."
  • Place the twisted marshmallows on top of the frosting.
  • Be sure to cover the entire top of the cupcake with the marshmallows.
  • Add a few drops of yellow food coloring to a bowl and thin it out with some water. The more water you add the fainter the yellow color will be.
  • Give your child a small paint brush and the bowl with the thinned food coloring and let them paint the cupcakes!
