Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

(originally made 6/2010)

This concept has been around for a million and one years, but I'd never attempted it before- bake a cupcake inside an ice cream cone.     Since yesterday was Jake's last day of first grade (I KNOW!! I can't believe it either!) I thought these would be a fun treat.    We almost hit 90ยบ, so I took the easy way out and used a boxed cake mix and canned frosting.     I slapdashed it into the cones with a cookie scoop, not really heeding the "only fill to blah-blah" instruction.    Yeah.  The first ones overflowed like Mt. Vesuvius.    Try #2 was better, a few bubble overs but it sort of looked like the ice cream had melted and run down the side   :)     

All in all, super fun, really fast and Jake loved them!

                         Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

 Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  1            package  chocolate cake mix -- (18-ounce)
  30                    flat-bottom ice cream cones
  2               cans  white frosting or Quick Homemade Frosting -- (16-ounce)
                        Assorted candy sprinkles

1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
2. Prepare the cake mix batter according to package directions. Spoon about 1/4 cup batter into each cone, filling to within 1/3 inch of the tops. Place the cones in muffin cups.
3. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the centers of the cupcakes comes out clean, 15 to 18 minutes. Let cool.
4. Spread the frosting on the cool cupcakes  and decorate with sprinkles.
Tip: Money Saver
If you don’t need 30 cupcakes, prepare the cake batter as directed, but bake only 15 cupcakes. Bake the remaining batter in an ungreased 8-inch round cake pan (according to package instructions), then freeze for a treat on another day.
