When I was a kid my Mom always made ice cream cone cupcakes for school events. They are great because they make much less mess for the kids. So I got some cake cones and a cake mix and I was ready to go.
First you make your cake mix as directed. Then you begin filling the cones with batter. I filled them just to the top ridge of the cones.
As you fill them you simply stand them in a pan. Be careful they turn over easily. Then you bake them. It takes about 15 minutes longer than regular cupcakes. The toothpick test works well with this.
They bake up well. I had several people ask me if the cones burn or have trouble, but just so you have no doubts here is one standing alone.
Don't they look cute? I haven't even frosted them yet. Well, tonight was the lions den story so my kids and I decorated the cupcakes like lions. I let them come up with the design and I think they did a great job. What do you think?
