Cupcake Icecream Cones...

My neice, Bianca made some of these the other day for her neice, Miss Rylee, so I thought I'd give them a go. You can microwave these (1 takes 30 seconds I found) but I thought baking was better.
First, cover a muffin tray with foil and make a hole to sit the cones in. This stops them toppling over.

Mix up the cake mixture of your choice - I used chocolate cake...
~
...fill them with a really large tablespoonful of mixture (next time, up to that inside rim would be best, now I know they won't explode over the sides too much) ...
~
... bake for 15 minutes (checking at 5 minute intervals) at 180C...
~
... drag out all your pretty decorations and go beserk! ...
~
Pretty cool, huh? Or do I just have too much time on my hands? I love doing things like this, though.

These are going to be demolished by a group of 16 year olds at school tomorrow when Brianna takes them for her best friend, Maddy who is turning 16! Happy Birthday, Mads!

Now onto making a casserole for netball teas tomorrow night. Bri is going to chop and prepare it then we'll toss it in the slow cooker.

  1. I do like cupcakes - so versatile. I just wondered: didn't the ice cream cones go a bit floppy in the m'wave

  2. Angie: No, the one I did in the microwave for 30 seconds was still crisp and the cake perfectly cooked through. Quite amazing. But you do get a better finish by baking them.

  3. I made and blogged these awhile ago as think they are a brillaint awesome invention!
    I too do them in the oven,but stand the cones in a muffin tin instead.
    Italian Meringue is great for topping them too to look like "real dairy whip".
    I have once but I usually just ice them and sprinkles.

  6. Very cute, and the cones would be edible as well, so no cupcake wrappers around the place, good idea.
