I made these for my son's birthday party at school. They were very well received by the 6 year olds. The teacher and her assistant liked them too. Next time, I will use a bit more batter in each, as I got 12 mini muffins in addition to the 24 cones. A baking time of 18 minutes was perfect in my oven. I used milk chocolate frosting, and a bag and tip, to simulate soft serve ice cream. Perfect; added sprinkles and Voila! They looked great; transportation was another story. My frosting didn't adhere them, and they are top heavy... :( I fashioned a box with holes, to safely move them. I will make these again. Really cute idea! Thanks for sharing, Lennie!
I have this exact same recipe and it is very popular with everyone, besides turning out so cute!
My mom always made these for my Valentines Day parties. The other kids thought they were so great! She used red velvet cake batter, topped with white icing (I think cream cheese icing?), and topped with a large candy heart (the conversation hearts). So cute and popular with all my friends.
These were a big hit with my 6 year old daughter and her friends at camp. I made these for her end of summer party. I filled mine about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way full and baked them for 28 minutes before they were done. I used a Duncam Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge cake mix but made my own frosting using Wilton's Chocolate Buttercream Icing, Decorator Icing/Frosting #386333. They tasted really good and looked absolutely adorable. Thanks Lennie!
These were great. My son sold out of the cupcakes at our yard sale in the morning and it was mostly adults who bought them! Next time we will make a double batch. I did make them the night before out of necessity and so I took the advice of a reviewer and poked holes in the bottom of the cones on two sides with the tines of a fork. They did not get soggy. Be very care when transporting with the frosting on!!! We did lose some. Great recipe!
I don't think I filled them up as much as I was supposed to because they were flat. However, I covered mine with whipped cream, so they still looked big. The edges of the ice cream cones were really crispy, especially the ones on the sides of the pan, closed to the oven. So, next time I might try using a slightly lower oven temp or time, and just making sure the cupcakes get done too. This is a fabulous idea. I'll definitely use this again.
I love these!!!! My mom made these when we were little. My son turns 4 soon and I'll be making them for him :)
These were such a hit! And not just with the kids - the adults were fascinated and kept asking me how I got the cake into the ice cream cones! I didn't have sprinkles, so I put miniature marshmallows on top, and that worked too. Great recipe - thanks!
These were lots of fun! Everyone kept asking how I kept the cones from burning-- I didn't do anything-- they just didn't burn or even brown! I made these with chocolate and strawberry cake mixes with chocolate and pink-tinted creamcheese frostings. They were a hit, especially with the littler kids!
