Are you planning a birthday party any time soon? These gorgeous cone cupcakes would make a great addition! They are both yummy and delicious! For the longest time, my daughter has been quite the tomboy, but her tastes seem to be changing to the girlier side of things. She wants pretty stuff around her all the time. These cupcakes are definitely pretty and I think they are going to be awesome for her birthday!
- 2 cups of flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 1 stick of butter (room temperature)
- 1/2 cup of vegetable shortening
- 2 Eggs
- 3/4 cup of milk
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 pack of Ice cream cones
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Start by sifting together the flour and baking powder. Next, add in your salt. Follow by mixing in the butter and vegetable shortening. Add one egg at a time, followed by the milk and vanilla. Mix together until everything is well combined.
Next, depending on whether you want the cake over the cone or not, you can either fill the cone a little less then half way or to the half way point. Use roughly 1-2 tablespoons per cone. Place cones into your cupcake pan and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until the top looks golden brown (use the toothpick test to be sure they are done).
Let your cakes cool down completely before icing. The icing is purely a matter of preference. If you want to, you can simply spread it on, use a can ready to squirt on top, or you can use an icing bag to frost and decorate as you choose. Cover in sprinkles and voila’ they are ready to be served at your party!
I am excited to try these with holiday themes for Halloween and Christmas!
