I don't know,lol, maybe not if you cook it slow

all americans seem to use packet mix but i may try it in the week with a basic sponge mix

Fab aren't they! I made some last year, and you just cook the cupcakes in exactly the same way as you normally would, except use a ice cream cone instead of a cupcake base!

If you're gonna have a go, I would suggest, you do a trial run with a couple first just to see how much batter the cone will hold!

What a great idea, I haven't heard of it before.

You can get the flat base cones in most supermarkets. They are made by Askeys and generally called kiddie cups.

I love these!

I shall put my teenage daughter to work. She enjoys baking (and eating the product of her labours!)

A fab idea.
Anyone got suggestions for other ways of doing great things like this :)
I'm dying to know what you're going to do when you get to 25 posts! We see this 'post anything to make up the numbers' everyday. ;)

Those are awesome! I'd be tempted to just use the icing though and not bother with the baking! ;)

I made these today, they are fab and got lots of comments. I did put a little too much cake mix in, but I will know better next time, as I will definately be making them again.
I make cakes in my sandwich shop and someone has already asked me to make them for a birthday party :D
Very happy, great idea

I made these a few weeks ago, my nephew really liked them but I think he enjoyed licking the icing off the best but my 20 year old son said they were cool !!

ohh nice to see this thread is still alive and kicking :D

still not made them yet ( insert blushing smilie)

I did this a couple of years back! I was trying things out for my little ones cupcake stand for the christening. I used muffin mix with just a small blob of buttercream icing piped on the top. Ended up using nut cup cases on the day, but these were fun to make, and eat!!

Great! I'll try to make some for my son's birthday next year..Hope you'll post some more tricks soon.

I wanted to make these in the summer but couldn't find anywhere that sold the flat bottomed 'kiddie cups'. I looked in Tescos (2 different stores), Waitrose and Sainsburys.

Where did you manage to buy your kiddie cups?
