Cone cupcakes are a fun treat for kids - and easy to make
If you're looking for something a little different from the usual cupcakes and oversized decorated cookies, ice cream cones can be turned into much more than a holder for melting goo.
You'll need to use the waffle style cones with the flattened bottom. These will fit perfectly in a muffin tin. You can also place them in any pan with raised sides.
Any cake batter can be used. Just mix and fill the cones - about 2/3 full, no more. Follow the mix instructions and bake until a toothpick comes out clean from the center or until the top is browned.
Just a hint: practice with one or two cones, first to get just the right amount of rise on the cone. If the baked mix is too far below the lip of the cone, it will require too much icing and be more difficult to decorate.
Once out of the oven, the cones need to cool. Then it's time to decorate. Use your favorite icing and sprinkles. You can even place a candle in the center. For heavier objects, use long toothpicks that will reach the bottom of the cone. In fact, if you wish, you can place the cupcakes on a thick sheet of Styrofoam and run skewers through. This will make a very festive grouping for display before a party. Most any cake toppers can be attached.
It's also fun to mix and match batters. Pour halfway with chocolate, for instance, and then finish off with white. Or, add from separate sides at the same time for an interesting surprise.
If you still want to include ice cream in the cone, bake the cake ahead of time. Let cool and chop up. Mix with ice cream and fill the cones. Keep in the freezer until time to serve. Top with whipped cream (add food coloring for a little pizzazz).
There is no end
to the fun you can have making cupcake cones. And the kids will love
