Cupcake Cones

So I know it's been a while since my last post. All I can say is this- Life. Life happens and gets in the way sometimes. I've been busy with school and work, not to mention the little free time I had was spent doing absolutely nothing. I've had a hard time finding my motivation for anything lately. However, this past weekend I got my niece Rosie and brought her to stay with me for a couple days. We had a full two days of fun, part of which included making cupcakes.

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.

Happy Baking!
