Today is DD’s eleventh birthday. We began by making cupcakes this morning before she left for school.
She wants ice cream cone cupcakes for the sleepover with her friends this evening. I made cake batter using the directions on a white cake box mix, divided the batter into three parts, and colored the batter green, pink, and blue. We filled the cones about 2/3 full. Setting the cones in a mini muffin tin helped hold them upright.
After baking, the cones were top heavy and some of them fell over as I pulled them from the oven. The frosting will cover any flaws. If I make these again, I will try wedging the cones into the muffin tins with aluminum foil.
I used buttercream frosting to ice the cupcakes.
I think she’ll like them.
