TRY CUP CAKES ON ICE CREAM CONES

I've been reading up on making cup cakes out of the ice cream cones. Here is a simple recipe that you can make using packaged cake mix. I intend to try it out using my own chocolate cake mix but if you are worried that it may be wasteful because the cone turns soggy, try the packaged mix until you are confident enough.

Here is what I usually do. I pre-filled the cone with just about half of the batter. This way, the cake mix is not overflowing when it rises when baked. If there are too much cake batter, it tends to leak during baking and cause your cones to be little soggy. Make your own chocolate mud cakes and fill 'em up with ice cream at the top.

Here is a simple recipe that you might like to try.

1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 (16 ounce) package vanilla frosting
1 ounce colored candy sprinkles

DIRECTIONS
Prepare cake mix batter according to directions, or make any standard cake recipe batter (i.e. white, chocolate, etc.).
Place flat-bottomed ice cream cones in the cups of a regular muffin pan. Pour enough batter into each cone to fill from 1/2 to 2/3 full.
Bake at time and temperature as recommended for cupcakes. After they have cooled, frost with your favorite canned or home-prepared frosting recipe. Decorate with sprinkles or other decorations of your choice.
