Ice Cream Cone Cake

IMG_5316I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream cone cake. The best part, it won’t melt. This adorable little cake is so simple to make and tastes delicious.

Ingredients

  • A mini six-inch cake
  • A tub of vanilla frosting
  • Sprinkles
  • Better Crocker Decorating Cupcake Icing in Chocolate
  • 5 mini ice cream cones
  • Vanilla cake batter to fill in the ice cream cones

Directions

  • Cover the mini cake with vanilla frosting
  • Lightly sprinkle colorful sprinkles around the top edge, sides and bottom of the cake
  • Fill 5 mini ice cream cones with cake batter halfway and place in the oven at 350 degrees for 12 minutes
    • It helps to put the mini cones in a mini cupcake tin to bake them, so they are less likely to fall over
  • Let the cupcake cones completely cool off
  • Once cooled, use the chocolate decorating cupcake icing to top the cones off and make it look like frozen yogurt
  • Sprinkle some sprinkles on the top of the chocolate frosting
  • Lightly press the cones against the side of the cake
    • You may want to wait to do this until right before you are serving it to prevent it from falling over
  • It works best to keep the cupcake cones in the fridge until right before you are serving them to prevent the icing from melting

Last but not least, let them eat cake! And make sure to save some for youself as well!

Since I love guacamole, I couldn’t resist adding this masterpiece to the menu. All you need are a few simple ingredients and this puking pumpkin could be making an appearance at your next Halloween party as well.

Ingredients

  • 1 small pumpkin
  • 1 tub of guacamole (to keep things really simple you can just buy already made guacamole from the store)

Instructions

  • Take a sharp knife and cut a jack o’lantern face of your choice on the pumpkin
  • Ensure that you leave a large opening for the mouth
  • Put the pumpkin on plate and dish out the guacamole making sure a little is placed right at the bottom of the mouth opening
  • Serve and watch the smiles come rolling in

And if there are any doctor’s at the party you can play a comedian like my husband and keep telling them, “Help! Help! This pumpkin looks terribly sick!”
