Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes
It is summer time. You are planning a party. Maybe it is a pool party or a birthday party. Whatever the reason for the party, you will want to make sure the event is special from the decorations to the foods. If you want to do something truly innovative and fun, decide to bake and include ice cream cone cupcakes instead of standard and quite boring cakes. These ice cream cones are easy to make. They are fun and creative, and unlike regular cones, they will not melt.
If you want to make these whimsical cupcakes, here is what you will need. You will need to purchase two dozen ice cream cones. Make sure you get the kind that has a flat bottom. You will also need cake batter. One excellent choice is the confetti cake mix since it will add a colorful touch to the cupcake. You will need the ingredients that are required for the mix, and that may include oil and eggs. Finally, you will need vanilla frosting and any sprinkles or decorations.
In order to bake the cones, simply fill the muffin pan cups just over one half with the cake batter and then turn the ice cream cones upside down into the raw batter. You will need to bake the cupcakes as directed. Once baked, you can remove the cones from the pan and peel away the baking papers.
Before you begin decorating, be sure to allow the cones to cool completely. Otherwise, the icing may melt. When frosting, you can use a piping bag to create an ice cream style or you can heap the frosting on with a knife or spoon. Finally, you can decorate as you see fit. You can use chocolate or multi colored sprinkles. You can also add a cherry to the top to create an authentic ice cream look. Feel free to decorate as you see fit.
Now that you have made these fun and whimsical cupcakes, you will need to store them until the party or event. This can be a little tricky since the shape of the cones is different. Use plastic wrap, but only cover the cones loosely so you do not damage the icing.
When it comes to summertime fun, the first thing you may think of is ice cream. You can incorporate the tasty treat into fun and manageable ice cream cone cup cakes.
