Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

I got up and baked ice cream cone cupcakes at 6:30am on Wednesday for my daughter's birthday celebration at her preschool class. I had read that these ice cream cone cupcakes can get soggy after several hours, so I was afraid to do them the night before. I also managed to make the blue and yellow swirled icing to match her Scooby Doo napkins. I was pretty happy with them- baking is not my forte! :)

TIP: These cupcakes are top-heavy in their cones, and tip easily. (I redid the icing on some a few times!) What finally worked for me was putting a small blob of icing on the bottom of the cones, then standing them up on a waxed paper-lined cardboard tray from a case of Frappucino. I then taped plastic forks upright along the edges, and put plastic wrap over top of the forks so it wouldn't smoosh the icing. It wasn't the most elegant mode of transportation, but it worked great! :)

They look great. The icing is spectacular. I know your daughter loved them.

I bet the kids loved them! Someone should come up with a special carrying case for them -- think of all the moms trying to do what you did!
