A great hit at my daughter's 3rd birthday party. Luckily I made enough for the adults too! (I transported them in cake tins with kitchen towel beween them

I use to make these with my daycare and foster children and now I make them with the grandchildren. A fun thing for them to do. Overlook the fact they will get frosting on themselves when decorating. LOL

These were fun and easy to make. My grandson loved them! I used crumpled up wax paper between the cones to transport which worked very well.
