I’ve been intrigued by this clever concept for as long as I can remember…
Filling plain old store-bought cones with deliciously dreamy cake batter and baking them into amazing specimens of culinary cuteness!
I’m entirely convinced that the sugar-loving individual who came up with it, is in some way related to Einstein.
Perhaps a distant relative?
Cake Cone Sundaes
- 12 ice cream cones
- 1-9oz. box “Jiffy” golden yellow cake mix
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 16oz. vanilla frosting
- Red food coloring
- Gallon-sized zipper bag
- Rainbow jimmies/sprinkles
- Old Fashioned Candy Sticks (World Market)
- Small red gumballs
Pour cake mix, buttermilk, egg, and vanilla flavoring into medium-sized bowl. With electric mixer, beat for 2-3 minutes on low speed setting.
Stand ice cream cones upright in muffin pan. Fill each cone with batter approximately 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
Carefully remove cake cones from the oven and allow to cool completely.
In a small mixing bowl, stir vanilla frosting and red food coloring until pink. Transfer to a gallon-sized zipper bag, seal, and snip one corner with a clean pair of kitchen shears.
Pipe pretty pink frosting onto cake cones and decorate by sprinkling with colorful jimmies, then topping with red gumballs and dark chocolate-covered candy sticks.
