I can only imagine your thoughts are going in either direction: “YES!” to brown butter and salted caramel or, “What? Popcorn cupcakes?!” Yes, I did! They do exist!
It’s not the first time this has been done and it sure won’t be my last!
The first time I’ve heard of popcorn cupcakes was a year ago in a Sandra Lee magazine. Now I would link to which edition but honestly, I don’t remember. What I do remember, is how pretty she made those cupcakes look. Have you taken a peek into this magazine? Sandra has some of the most tastiest looking recipes that appear to be pretty simple to make for the average home cook. Definitely not intimidating at all and we all know, I don’t really cook.
Not only that, she and/or her team of stylists are seriously talented. I sometimes find myself flipping through her magazine not just for the recipes but to see what’s “in” with the upcoming season based on the styling of the dining room and dessert tables. It almost makes me what to change careers and become some sort of interior designer/stylist.
As you can see, I find her to be very influential. I even made a cake recipe inspired by her. Now you might laugh at my photography, but that’s ok. It was shot a year ago and looking back at it, I laugh too. It’s my Spooky Spider Cake. The recipe isn’t hers but the design of the cake was inspired by her. I’m sure that was probably in her September or October 2013 edition.
Even though it’s been a year from the last time I’ve seen popcorn cupcakes I figured, I’d just make my own. It doesn’t seem too complicated, right? Take your favorite cake recipe, I took the white cake recipe found HERE, and frost the tops with brown butter salted caramel frosting and stick the popcorn right on top. Easy?
I know :)

And if you love caramel (salt is optional) then, you’ll LOVE these. Plus, it’s made with browned butter. Who doesn’t like browned butter?! I would need to talk to that person if I ever found out.
