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!
