Twist on cupcakes. Prepare cake mix as usual. 1 cake mix per 24 ice cream cones. Fill 2/3 full - be careful not to overfill like I did :) Bake about 20 minutes, like you would for cupcakes. Decorate the way you would like. I just used buttercream frosting and tapped into my collection of sprinkles. Easy and very cute.
We made these for DJ's 28th birthday. Amber made Oscar and Cookie Monster. Tia, Amber's roommate, made the Elmo's. Heidi made Big Bird. We used Bugles for Big Bird's beak. Eyes and noses were made by various candies. Used a leaf tip for Big Bird, and star tips for the others. It was so serendipitous, my life will never find happiness again.
PS- If Amber makes me write these silly descriptions, I'll give her a description.
We have been understaffed at work and my fellow "front desk" ladies wanted to thank the techs for stepping in and helping. Linda came up with the idea of making a tank cake that said T'anks A Lot. I thought it was an awesome idea.
