Every year since Bret was in kindergarten (this year makes 25 years) he has taken a popcorn cake to either school or work to celebrate his birthday. This year he wanted to take it today because last Friday there was no morning conference. I went to a friends house to watch movies last night and didn't get home until really late. As I was setting my alarm for this morning I was thinking to myself that Bret had a great birthday and it occurred to me that I almost forgot about the dang popcorn cake. So I set my alarm for even earlier (bummer since Em is on spring break which meant we all could have slept in) and made the cake this morning.
16 cups of popped popcorn1/2 cup oil 1/2 cup margarine 1 lb marshmallows 1 lb roasted peanuts 1 lb M & M's Melt together oil, margarine, and marshmallows until smooth. Set aside and let cool to room temperature. Mix together popcorn,peanuts, and M&M's. Pour marshmallow mix over and mix using buttered hands. Press into a sprayed angel food cake pan. Turn over onto a plate and enjoy!
