Ice Cream Cone Cup Cakes (Cone Cakes)

Wow- I have got to think of a better name than that for this cheerful little treat!
edit: Ross just named them Cone Cakes :)

We had a BBQ at our house today (for our amazing MOPS mommas) so I had a great excuse to give these little puppies a try! Plus, tomorrow is my birthday, so the calories didn't count.

1 boxed cake mix, prepared
24 sugar ice cream cones
Special equipment: 2 large disposable aluminum pans

1- Cut 12 holes in the bottom of each pan, large enough to securely hold the cones. Mine were far from perfect circles. Turn the pan upside down on a baking sheet. This is to give it more stability and to catch any drippies. Place one cone in each hole.

2- Fill each cone a little bit more than half way. DO NOT OVER FILL. Trust me...huge messes will result.

3- Bake according to box directions for cupcakes, adding about 5-7 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. I was concerned that the cones would burn, but they don't.

4- After cupcakes are cooled, ice and add sprinkles! Lots and lots of sprinkles!

5- Listen to everyone tell you that you're a genius...
even though you know the cupcakes were super easy to make!

PS: Isn't he the cutest little thing ever? His smile was contagious!
