Ice-cream Cone Cupcakes


Ice-cream Cone Cupcakes, originally uploaded by Vegan Year.

Aren't these cool!
I used my mini-muffin pan to hold the cones up, as the indents in the pan were exactly the right size with no pfaffing about with foil to hold the cones steady.
I put some chocolate chips in the bottom of the cones to be a treat at the end of the cake, and filled the cones about 3/4 of the way with the Vanilla Cake mix from the Lamington recipe in VBS. They baked up lovely and rounded and didn't split the cones or anything!
I used the Buttercream, More or Less (again VBS) as the "ice-cream" part - half were Vanilla Bean and half Chocolate.
There was one snag with these. I made a batch yesterday and overnight the cone got soft and yucky so I had to re-make this morning. Hate it when that happens. Note to self for the future - this is a same day cupcake project!!
