Party Pants: Ice Cream Cone Cakes

For Little Miss's birthday cake at her party last weekend, I had made a tiered display of these ice cream cone cakes...

She loved them so much, she asked me to make more for her class treat yesterday on her actual birthday!

Here's the how to:

I used Pillsbury Funfetti Cake Mix
Whipped Vanilla Frosting
Joy Brand Colored Cake Cones

Preheat your oven and mix the batter, per the instructions on the box.

To bake you have really two good options - I used the picture method for her party.
Cover a baking dish with two layers of aluminum foil. Cut an X in the foil where you'll be placing the cones and push them through.

For her class treat, because I had to make so many, I simply stood the cones up in my cupcake pans and cooked them that way (you just have to be careful they don't tip over).

Fill the cones 3/4 full and bake for about 20 minutes.

When done, let cool COMPLETELY. Then begin to ice.
I first did a thin, flat layer on them to make sure all the edge were covered.
I then piped additional icing to give it a swirled, ice cream effect.

Add sprinkles & decoration!

^ These are the ones we made for class :)

They were a HUGE hit - the kids all asked to make sure because they wanted to keep the picks! lol, so cute.
