Melted Icecream Cupcakes - Nailed it! Fail...9/07/2012 11:41:00 AM
Well... you work with what you have when you are on birthday party time restraints. These ice-cream cone cupcakes do NOT look like the pretty ones I found on Pinterest, but the boys at my son's birthday didn't care and the birthday boy LOVED them, so that is all that matters!!
What mine looked like:
|What they are SUPPOSED to look like!!!|
They were supposed to have white icing to look like ice-cream, I decided to go with an "accidently on purpose" melted ice-cream cone, so pulled off the big globs of batter, left a few that looked like drips and I piped with chocolate. Genius or.... hilarious!? Well, I laughed!
Then I had to figure out to get them to the party with no trays to set them in (also sold at previous garage sale). I got really smart and put them in my broiler pan that goes in the oven with some plastic wrap over top. The first corner I took on my way to the party location, a gorgeous park near by, converted rows of orderly cones into what looked like a chocolate porcupine! What a mess, chocolate everywhere! Luckily, I brought a knife to the party and my husband pulled them all apart and re-spread the icing. I have learned of some neat tricks since: You can cut holes in the bottom of an inverted aluminum disposable roasting pan or a cereal box to put them in, or you can but a tray especially for ice cream cone cupcakes (which I haven't found yet).

If you have any other tips or cone stories - I'd love to hear them!!!
Would I do them again? Yes! They were a hit and very yummy, but I think I should stick to sewing...
