A cake for Oscar night

I haven't been baking much lately, because baking is not knitting. For tonight, though, I was asked for a cake that looked like a bowl of popcorn:


To flavor it I soaked it with Cheerwine, a fine local soda–it's kind of like a fruitier Dr. Pepper. I boiled it to make it a little more like a syrup.

I covered the top and sides of the cake with chocolate.

The popcorn was piped with a round tip and a curved tip, with a little bit of yellow striped inside the bag.

I thought it would do better with some more color, but I don't know how I would add it–M&Ms around the sides, maybe?

    You are wicked.
    You don't need to add any M&Ms. Please donate them to the M&Ms For Aubrey charity of your choice.

    Hmm… pipe some color on the "bowl" part so it looks like a multi-colored bowl instead of a plain one?The "popcorn" is great!
