I was shopping at my favorite Drug Store last weekend, and I came across a cart of Cake Cones (for ice cream) marked down to $.25/box! I bought a box and new instantly what I was going to use them for. With friends coming for a play date, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to make Cone Cupcakes!
For this recipe you need: 1 box of your favorite flavor cake mix (prepared according to package), 24 cake cones, muffin pans, frosting and sprinkles :)
After mixing the cake batter, place cake cones into your muffin tin. I still use liners, to cut back on messes!
Fill each cone about 3/4 of the way full.
I made 12 cake cones and 24 mini muffins out of one box of cake mix. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes (the minis only took about 15).
Allow to cool completely before frosting. Don't worry what the tops look like, they will be covered!
My first thought for these was cream cheese frosting...my favorite! I mixed cream cheese, a little butter, powdered sugar and vanilla. Chill before frosting the cupcakes.
Unfortunately, I ran out of powdered sugar before I got it to the consistency I wanted...but the end result dried looking like real ice cream!
I decorated half of the cupcakes with canned strawberry frosting and added cute sprinkles!
Robyn and her buddy loved their ice cream...that didn't melt :)
