Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

With Summer Fete season upon us I thought it was time I shared with you the recipe for these scrumptious ice cream cones cupcakes. These vanilla scented cupcakes encased in wafer cones and decorated like traditional ice cream cornets, take no longer than a regular cupcake to make but are real showstoppers. Perfect to whip up for the cake stall.

Ingredients for the Icing

300g Butter

600g Icing Sugar

A few drops of Vanilla Extract

A dash of Milk

Chocolate Flakes

Strawberry Sauce

Sprinkles

To Make the Icing

Cream the butter and slowly add the icing sugar.

Mix well.

Add the vanilla extract and a dash of milk and combine.

Either add a spoonful to each cone as we did or if you’re feeling particularly creative you can pipe the icing on.

Decorate with a small chunk of flake, a little sauce and some sprinkles.

These are best made on the day of the fete.
