Cupcakes In A Cone

Recommended Posts

I am planning cupcakes baked in icecream cones for DS today to take to school tomorrow for his B'day. How do you transport them without them falling over and making a big mess?

Also I'm planning to stand the cones in muffin tins. I'm hoping the weight of the batter will help them stand during baking.

Have you made these before? I haven't tried it, but I've learned the hard way to do my experiments when the results are not required for a special occasion. I'd be interested to hear how they turn out.

You might have good luck transporting them by turning over a box top, cover it with foil or plastic wrap and cut Xs in it to make holes that you could stick the cones in. That worked for me in transporting a bunch of bud vases with water and flowers. You'll need a flat surface to put them on, maybe in the trunk or cargo area? And I'd find some way to cover them, no one cares if there is a bit of fluff or dust on their carnations but fuzzy cupcakes would be a different issue.

Good luck!

I have had these before. Make sure you don't over fill the cones...I think between half and 3/4 full. They do well cooking in a muffin tin. Transporting I'm not to sure of though. I think Karen B's idea would work great though!!!!

Thanks. That's a good idea. I've seen "recipies' for them but haven't tried myself. I usually don't experiment with stuff at the last minute like this either. I'm using a cake mix that I've used before so there isn't too much that can go wrong. I hope!

Please post your results back here along with the name of the cones and mix. It sounds like a fun thing to take to a summer get together.

I have made those pre gluten-free days. I transported them in a 9x13 pan with sides. Then covered with saran wrap. As long as you have enough in the pan they stay up just fine. :) Enjoy your cuppeycakes.

I had to abandon my plan. 3 of the stores closest to me that carry them were all out! My advice, buy the cones way ahead of time! I planned to use the Pamela's choc. cake mix. I love the Namaste too but the Pamela's is fimer and would be better for this project IMHO. Stores should re-stock in a week or so, so I'm going to get some and try it then.

For future....to store them/transport them, use a large shirt gift box....cut big X's about 2" or so apart on the lid. Press them open just enought that they won't crush the cones when you put them in it. Other idea is to get an ice cream cone stand from a food supply, they are not expensive. One available around the corner from me is only like $6.99 or something like that.

The idea sounds great!! What cones do you get that have flat bottoms? If I ever find a cake recipe that works, I'd like to try that too!

I searched on the net today and couldn't find any with flat bottoms. The ones that are sold in stores near me are Cerrone and Glutano for $8-9 per box. Pretty pricey if you're doing it for a class but slightly more affordable for a small group. IF the glutano are the right make-up to work, I wondering how I'd bake them? Hmmm.....Silly me for thinking this would be simple.

Here's a link to show the idea for those who haven't seen this before. I have to say, Martha's don't look as pretty as others I've seen.
