Can't you download the update from the Mac website?


They also give advice on how to create a bootable installer for the OS:


Edit: I realize that it requires downloading the file again, but I don't think there is a way to get the information from the update that you initially downloaded unless it downloaded as a .dmg file (or whatever the filetype may be).
