Cupcake Cones

I've never made these before....apparently they are something all kids love when they are young, especially when it's their birthday and they get to bring in cupcakes to the class. Well, I've never even heard of them before tonight so I'm going to have a little chat with my mom this weekend ;)
They are SUPER easy....just make your cake batter as normal. Then pour batter into each cone, approx 1/2 full. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until lightly brown (the toothpick is a bit short for these). Let cool and then add frosting and sprinkles.....TAH DAH!!!

I didn't realize they were that easy! These cupcakes are super cute -- what kind of frosting did you frost them with?

It's so funny that you posted this...just the other day, I was thinking about you and your cake-making. When I first started reading your blog, you were taking a class...and I wondered how that was going for you.

Ok! Jillian! Can you please just fly to Indiana and make these for Eli's snack day at school? Even your icing looks perfect! Yum!

Angel Wilde said...
