It was Aidan’s big fifth birthday this past weekend and boy, was it a fun weekend!
On Friday, I took off work to get ready for his party on Saturday and to also bring in cupcakes for his preschool class. Instead of the traditional, normal cupcakes I decided to try to make ice cream cone cupcakes. The teacher said that all the kids just loved them.
You get regular ice cream cones and fill them with cake batter. Mine didn’t rise as much as I would have liked, so I suggest filling them a little more than 3/4 way up the cone. Another trick, to get the cones to stand up in the cupcake pan, it is helpful to put aluminum foil around it to hold it steady.
Then you just bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes. The batter will rise and come up over the cone like a cupcake (or to look like a scoop of ice cream). You then ice as normal and voila – ice cream cupcake cones! They are a lot of fun to do and eat!!
More on the birthday weekend later 🙂
