I’ve been “all things ice cream” lately so when I saw this itty bitty mini cones (seriously, so tiny and cute), I knew I had to whip up a little dessert idea with them! I’ve actually never made cake cones. So I thought this was the perfect chance for me to try them out and make a cute little mini treat.
Place your mini ice cream cones in a mini muffin tin. Excuse the fact that mine looks like it has been around the block a few times. It has. I call it “loved”. Anywho, they fit easily down in there. Preheat your oven o 350.
Then we stop and look at this cute sign (I got it at Swoozies during my book signing in Atlanta last year). Isn’t it cute? So cute.
You make the batter (use your fave chocolate cake or any other flavor) and fill each cone 2/3 of the way full. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Once they are done, they look like this (above). Don’t worry if some puff up more than others. No big deal.
Then when they cool, you pipe them! I mean, do those not look just like little ice cream cones? This couldn’t be easier either! No serious dessert talent needed. I used a round tip to frost mine but you could use a bag with the corner snipped for a similar look. You can make any frosting you fancy. I highly recommend this book for Frostings ;)
Sprinkles are always a must. I used some pearly sprinkles that I bought here. They have a slight shimmer to them which is fun! You can use any sprinkles that your heart desires though.
Then they need their sprinkle bath.
Want to see the inside, huh? Here it is! In all it’s chocolatey cake glory. These little guys are SO DELICIOUS! I personally love the fact that you can customize it too. Pick your favorite cake + frosting pairs.
Easy peasy! I used the mini cones made by Joy. I found them at my regular grocery so be on the lookout next time you’re in the market! And see more ice cream ideas over on my Sulia account here + here!
