These were so fun and easy to make! I put the cones in a muffin pan and filled them about 1/2 way with the cake mix and they came out with nice round tops. Just used store bought frosting and added sprinkles on top=) As someone stated before the cones do get soggy so eat up!!=)
I took this to a recital (everyone was asked to bring treats) & they were gone before anything else! I baked as long as I could without burning them, & there was no problem with sogginess when they were eaten 4 hours later. I also baked in a cupcake pan to avoid the domino effect should one tip over while I placed in oven.
These are great a perfect hit with the kids and grown ups. If you are anything like me and became a little confused after reading the reviews about how much cake mix to fill the cone with I first made only 6 using various amounts in the cones, and then I used the rest of the mixture for mini cupcakes. I found I needed a little more than the 1/4 cup stated in the recipe. Once I worked out how much then I made a full batch. I found it easier to do a small trial first rather than wasting a whole heap of cones and mix.
Great idea! I made these for a pre-teen group at my church and everyone (even the adults) loved them. I wish I'd read the reviews before making though, as using scant 1/4 cup batter was still too much and they ended up overflowing all over the pan making the appearance less than 5*. I think next time I make these I will pour the cake batter into a large ziploc bag with a hole cut in the corner. Hopefully that will give me more control over how full the cones get!
these were my FAVORITE when i was a kid!!!
These are awesome! I made them for my engagement party. I also had to fill them more than half way in order for the "scoop" shape to form on top. Also, I wouldn't recommend making these the day before the event because the cones ended up a little soggy.
My mother made something like this for a birthday when I was a small child and they really stuck in my mind. These tasted good and were good fun. I also had to fill my cones more than half the way up to get the cake to come up and out of the cone.
These were so fun! Just don't make them the night before because the cones will turn soggy. I found that I needed to fill the cones more than halfway to get a little more rise out of them. These made a hit for my son's birthday party. I had them decorate their own with candies and sprinkles.
I made these before for my daughter's birthday party. Of course, they were a HIT! We are making them 3 times this week in celebration of her birthday - for a FUN treat for our 4-H meeting, for a snack at Christian Education, and for our adult bible study group! This is fun for kids and adults alike! Easy, and no mess! No need for "ice cream"! Mrs. Even
