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!
