In celebration of Valentine's Day this week, I thought I would share a simple twist on the traditional, ever-popular cupcake which uses ice cream cone shells instead of traditional liners or baking cups.
You will need:
-Ice cream cone shells with FLAT bottoms
-Cupcake mix or a from-scratch recipe
-Butter cream icing
-Icing piping bag and/or decorating tools
-Toppings (sanding sugar shown in pink and red)
To make these simple cupcakes, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and prepare the batter as directed. Line a baking sheet or muffin tin with ice cream cone shells. Fill each shell 2/3 full with your prepared batter. Bake for 17-19 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Allow your cupcakes to cool before icing and decorating.
These are super fun for Valentine's Day, classroom celebrations, or birthday parties and can be decorated for any color scheme or theme using colored sprinkles or sanding sugars.
