I decided to try the cupcakes in ice cream cones that I've seen so often. It seemed fairly simple and I knew Rosie would like them. I went the total cheater route on these! Boxed cake exactly per box instructions and canned chocolate frosting. I did add blue Wilton colorburst batter bits to the cake. And of course we put sprinkles on top! A couple of them turned out well and we were able to add frosting so that it actually looked like ice cream in a cone. The rest of them though, not so much. I forgot to take a picture of them because I was so wrapped up trying to keep frosting off my floor :) The cake baked up well on one side of the cones, but poured out the other side. It was pretty sad. But still, I let Rosie frost them herself and take them home with her.
She managed to get frosting pretty much everywhere! But it was worth it. I enjoyed having her here and she was already talking about what she wanted to do next time she comes. So now I'll try to get back into the routine and start posting regularly again.
