Show Me Some Birthday Cupcake Cones!

Yummy goodness in a cone! and it is not melting!

Rebecca turned 13 this year! She is officially a teenager! So this called for a fun birthday party which included Pizza, “Big, Better, Best Scavenger Hunt,” Purple Cows, and Cupcake Cones. We are always looking for new ways to serve birthday cake!

We decided not to bake the cupcake batter in the small cones (as many have done) but to use the larger waffle cones and stuff them with layers of cupcakes and frosting.

Steps

We made 1 box each of butter and milk chocolate cake mixes.

We did 2 sizes of cupcakes, miniature and regular. We needed the smaller ones to stuff in the cones first and then top off with the large cupcake, filling with buttercream icing in between. The icing acts as glue to hold it all together! Here is a step by step look at the process (in the pictures!)

The Vanilla and Chocolate cupcakes in 2 sizes.

First stuff a miniature cupcake in waffle cone

Now pipe buttercream frosting on top

Tip: Piping the icing in was the best method, we used disposable bags with the tip cut off.

Add another mini cupcake

We made some all vanilla, all chocolate and some mixed and used the icing colors to differentiate.
Tip: We matched our icing colors to the birthday paper goods for a coordinated look!

Piping on second layer of frosting

Add large cupcake and ice the top to look like an ice cream cone & sprinkles add the finishing touch!

Cupcake cones, drying on a box

Tip: We used a box with a lid and made holes for the cones to stand up in while the icing dries. A shoe box worked great also.

Rebecca taste test one! yum!

Big better best winners!

The winners returned with a Hello Kitty waffle iron, toaster and a Harley Davidson mini collectors grill!

We decided our drinks would be the Purple Cows (like we enjoyed from the Shake Shack on our New York trip!) to go with our fun food, vanilla ice cream and grape soda!
