This is a real crowd pleasure for children. I have made this for my children's birthday parties and for parties in my child's class. I have used cake with sprinkles in it with cream cheese icing and more sprinkles on top. I also have made the cone look like a fountain drink by cutting a straw into thirds and sticking it in for a pool party. Give this recipe a try!

I made the Texas Sheath Cake for these. I was a little nervous about the cone in the oven, didn't want them to burn. The cone held up wonderfully, no changes or burning. Topped the cake off with some peanut butter chocolate sauce, whipped cream, chopped peanuts and a cherry. They looked great! Thank you!
