Birthday Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

When I was a little girl my mom enrolled me in a community cooking class and the first thing I remember getting to bake was Cupcakes inside Ice Cream cones. Last week while I was baking in Betty Crocker’s kitchen I learned a new trick about baking these yummy treats.

The new trick is rather then pouring the batter directly into the ice cream cone and hoping it doesn’t spill over, you pour the batter into the cupcake holder then place the ice cream cone upside down in the middle of the cupcake holder. Yes, the batter bakes right into the cone AMAZING.

Ready to snack these yummy treats for your next Birthday bash or a fun surpirse for your kids when they arrive home from school?

After frosting, enjoy a downpour! Sprinkle frosted cone cakes with any of the following: breakfast cereal, animal crackers, dried fruit, candy sprinkles, crushed hard candies, graham cracker crumbs, granola, mini chocolate chips or chopped nuts.
Vary the flavor of your cake cones by using other varieties of Betty Crocker® cake mix. You could also try different flavors of flat-bottom cones.
