It started with a box of 200 cones...
and no ice cream to fill them.
So what is a girl to do?
Bake of course!
What seemed like a simple little project
turned out to be a bit
frustrating but still sweet in the end.
First I baked mini cupcakes...
After they had cooled
I crumbled one and filled the
bottom of the cone...
Then my daughters added a
swirl of frosting...
Super easy to make but...
the hard part was getting them to the party.
I made holes in an egg carton to hold the cones
but with the frosting on top they became top heavy
and so every bump and turn along the way
was a potential disaster waiting to happen.
We did make it to the picnic without
any major frosting/cupcake disasters.
What I learned?
I learned that I should probably make
a neat little cone holder if I plan to make these
again and I learned that even though they
weren't perfect, the kids enjoyed them.
