Directions for Preparing Cake Cones
In order to create the cake cones, you will need to have cake. You can bake a cake entirely from scratch or you can use a boxed mix. If you are looking to get these finished in ample amount of time, using a cake mix is highly suggested. If you are using a cake mix, all you need to do is follow the directions on the box. You will typically need to combine the mix with eggs and vegetable oil. Once you have combined these ingredients, everything should be mixed thoroughly.
The next thing you will need to do is grab a cupcake pan or even a cookie sheet, although the cupcake pan will be a bit easier to use. The ice cream cones should be placed onto the cupcake pan, one by one, placed in each individual cupcake slot. Once they are sitting in the cupcake pan, you can pour the cake mixture into each cone, filling it up to about the first ridge of the cone, leaving a little bit of space at the top. While you are pouring the cake mixture into the cones, the oven should be placed on around 400 degrees F so that it can warm up. Once the oven is ready, the cupcake cones can be placed inside and will need to bake from anywhere between 15-20 minutes. It is important to check on them to see if they are ready or not.
Once the cupcake cones are completely baked, you can remove them from the oven and sit them out so that they can cool off. After they have cooled off completely, you can take frosting (homemade or packaged) and apply it to the cupcake cones. If you are doing the cones for a bake sale or fundraiser, you may want to use different frosting flavors to mix it up a bit. As a finishing touch, sprinkles can be added to the frosting. You can allow the cupcake cones to sit out or you can place them in the fridge until you are ready to serve them. They will surely be a success amongst whomever you are giving the cupcake cones to. In less than an hour, you can have the perfect treat prepared.
