Ice Cream Cone Cuppycakes

I thought that everyone knew about these cupcakes.
They were really popular at birthday parties when I was growing up.
However, when I brought them to school yesterday, some of the other parents were amazed that you could bake a cupcake inside a cone.

They are super easy-peasy.
First, line up some standard ice cream cones on a cookie sheet or in muffin tins.
(A standard cake mix will make about 24 cupcake cones.)
Prepare your favorite cake mix, and fill each cone about half full.
Bake according to the box, using the cupcake time.
Let them completely cool.
Use a large star tip to frost the cupcakes to resemble ice cream.
Add sprinkles and a "cherry" (gumball, gumdrop, etc)

These are a little tricky to travel with.
Since they are top-heavy, they tend to topple over.
To help in transporting them, use a drop of frosting to "glue" the base of your cones to a tray.

The kids LOVE them!
Smiles all around.

Very cute! I have found that the cute items we all know about here in blogland are often new and never seen by people who don't blog. So it's always fun to share ideas even when you think it's an old one.

I'd forgotten about these! Plus I didn't know the "glue" tip about the bottom of the cone, thanks!

I used to make them for the Girl Scouts. Instead of frosting and transporting, we took the fixings and let the kids decorate their own. A little more mess, lots more fun. (Probably could not get away with it in a classroom though). Thanks for the reminder. My scouts are all grown up.
