I was going to email the instructions, but thought in case others need them, I might as well just post them here:
Yellow Food Color
Ahead of time you want to make your marshmallow popcorn pieces, as they do take alot of time to do. I plan on about 22 - 25 per cupcake. Using a scissors, snip an "x" design into the top of the marshmallow. (You might want to do alot of these at one time. Then pull open the cut sections and paint a little yellow food coloring. (Yellow color mixed with vanilla). Don't try to be neat, some gets more color, some gets it on the outside, makes it look more like real popcorn. Put them on a cookie sheet while you work.
Next, print, then cut out your popcorn wrappers. I roll a piece of tape and attach it to the top of a nutcup, just below the lip and push the center section of the wrapper against the tape to hold it in place. Then wrap the label around the cup, again, just below the lip, overlap the ends and tape it shut. Now you want to snip the lip of the nutcup at the back just so it will be easier to get to the cupcake later.
After your nutcup and wrapper are ready you can drop a cooled cupcake into the cup and push it to the bottom. Do NOT bake in the nutcup as it is coated and shouldn't be used for baking. If you want to fill your cupcake do so, then frost the top. Now take your pieces of popcorn and push it into the frosting, covereing the entire top of the cupcake. Put them in different directions to get that realistic effect.
You now have mini bags of popcorn. VERY time consuming, but worth the effort.
