Cupcake Ice Cream Cones

here is the ingredients I used:

-1 Box of cake mix
-24 ice cream cones plain with flat bottom
-2 cans of Easy Frost frosting (I used white and brown)
-m&m's, marshmellows, skittles, chocklate chips to fill the cones
-albumin cooking pan that you can cut and hold the cupcakes

if you prefer to make your own cake here is the ingredients

makes 24 cupcake ice cream cones / 350 degree oven

2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1-1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs

also here is a recipe for your own buttercream frosting[I use this]think it tatstes better than the cans of frosting
Vanilla and Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
2 sticks butter
7 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup cocoa powder (I use Valrhona)

1. beat butter until creamy, scrape bowl
2. add 5 cups of sifted powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla, beat until combined
3. add more powdered sugar until you get to the consistency you want (not too stiff so that its hard to pipe)
4. take out half of the buttercream and reserve, this is your vanilla
5. add the cocoa powder to the remaining half and beat to combine, you might need to add a little milk if its too stiff, this is your chocolate buttercream
 ok prepare cake mix and make your 24 cupcakes, while they are cooling prepare your cones. I filled some with marshmallows, m&m's, skittles, crushed oreo's, and gummy bears!  Dont forget to prepare the holder for the 24 cupcakes. You can also use the box the cones came in. Just cut little circles to hold the cones.
By now you should have all your cones filled with yummy treats. Now make sure your cupcakes are cooled then place one cupcake on top of each cone, I used two cupcakes in this picture.. Taking a generous dollop of frosting on the spatula and cover the entire cake. Swirl it around to resemble soft serve ice cream..
With the candy tucked away inside the ice cream cone, these cakes can do double-duty as candy bags. Your party guests can take a piece of cake home with them, along with a candy bag they can entirely eat!  This is a prefect birthday party treat and your guests will love them. You could also set it up so each party guest could make their own cones. Have fun, happy baking.
