It's that time of the year again. The denouement of red carpet season. In case you've been living under a rock, Sunday marks the 85th Academy Awards in tinseltown.
Inevitably the sideshow will take center stage. Living rooms and social media will explode with activity. Dresses will be oohed and ahhed over or ripped apart by the seams. Plastic surgery will be cattily speculated upon, hair will be heralded and hated, jewelry, shoes and makeup will be appraised, appreciated and abhorred. Speeches and presenters will be dissed and lauded.
That doesn't happen at your place?
However or with whomever you watch the Oscars, there are sure to be lots of snacks. Popcorn is of course a movie classic. I can only guess how many different versons will be consumed across the country Sunday evening.
In Germany movie theater popcorn is always sugared. Butter and salt are not the norm. I was initially disappointed with this but over my years there I learned to tolerate it, then like it even.
So for an Oscar evening treat, I made this sweet version and accented it with edible silver spray and gold marshmallow fondant stars.
I seem to always have endless amounts of leftover fondant. So I rolled it, cut out star shapes and sprayed them gold. Color Mist is seriously making me a baker/decorator.
Some sliver sprinkles were thrown in for a little extra glitz.
The recipe for sugar popcorn I found here. One word of warning, when adding the water and popcorn kernels to the oil, be careful because that hot oil will splatter. A lot.
So go on and get your catty on and enjoy the show!
