(originally made 6/2010)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 90º, 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.
