Mini "ICE CREAM" Cupcakes

I've gotten to where I buy those cake ice cream cones quite often. My kids enjoy eating their regular yogurt in them as well as frozen yogurt & ice cream. I was at Wal-Mart the other day and I picked some up not really examining the box because I am always in a hurry. Later that night I opened them up to make my girls an ice cream cone and was quite surprised at how small they were. When I say small I mean tiny. These things would only hold maybe a couple tablespoons of ice cream. After examining the box closely I realized that the cones pictured are the actual size.

I was kind of bummed that I got the wrong size but when I showed the kids they got all excited. I guess they are kind of cute. These will really stretch a container of ice cream. I was thinking about what else I could do with these cute little cones and came up with cupcakes baked in them. These would make a great little treat to take to a party or even for a birthday party. Like I said, I found these cones at Wal-Mart so maybe yours will have them as well. I've never noticed them at my grocery store but that doesn't mean they don't have them.

So there really isn't a recipe. Just use your favorite cake mix or homemade cake batter. Take the mini cones and place them into mini muffin tins to help them stand up straight in the oven.

Fill only about 3/4 of the way, maybe even a tad less. You don't want them to over flow. Bake for about 16-17 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. Let them cool completely. Frost them however you want and then decorate. I frosted mine with Cool Whip dyed blue.

I hope you enjoy this fun little dessert idea! Have a great weekend!

Wow... I think I had these at someone's birthday party many years ago. Love the use of the mini-muffin tins though-- I got some this year and have been going a little mini-muffin tin crazy.
