The daughter and I had always enjoy baking but the other night she decided that baking the normal red velvet cupcakes as they were shown on the box was not good enough. No. This tween wanted something different, something she thought was cool. Something more…
While yes , as shown above she made a cute smiley face out of the mini cupcakes that were made, she didn’t only do that. The cream cheese frosting was made and the cupcakes were a great start, but then she realized you could put cake mix in ice cream cones… did you all know that? I have seen it done before but didn’t realize it was super easy.
While the ice cream cone cupcakes did not come out exactly as planned, give her a break this was her first time trying to make them, they did come up tasting delicious.
In order to make the cupcake cones, you basically make cake mix with your own recipe or as shown on a box. From there you spoon in cake mix into the ice cream cones about 3/4 of the way up, I think you should do about 1/2 or so because we did 3/4 and they overflowed, just a thought.
You bake in the oven according to the instructions for cupcake baking. Let cool. Frost the tops, decorate and enjoy!
