Mini cupcakes in ice cream cones are perfect for celebrating an unbirthday or serving to the neighbor kids who wind up at your house after school. You’ll need: mini ice cream cones, cake batter, and frosting.
Mix up your favorite cake recipe, from a box or from scratch. Gently add sprinkles to some of the batter for an instant confetti cake.
Put the mini ice cream cones into a mini muffin pan (I’ve seen these mini cones at both Target and Wal-Mart). Pour some batter to the bottom line on the cone–-not too full or they will overflow, less is better. Bake at the temperature the cake mix or your recipe calls for, for about 12 minutes.
Once cooled, add a swirl of frosting to resemble an ice cream cone. This will easily make 60 mini cupcake cones (but you don’t have to make that many).
I thought I’d round up a few of the guest posts I did for other blogs last year. I hope you enjoy a little classic OCP. Photos by Nicole Hill Gerulat.
