Ice Cream Cupcakes

I'm back with another baking post and it's another sweet treat. My mum made these for her work at christmas time and I've been meaning to make them for myself but just hadn't got round to them until now!

It's pretty simple all you need is some Ice Cream cones but you need the flat bottomed ones so they can stand in the muffin tray whilst they are baking. Either make your cake mix from scratch or like me I just trusted good old Betty Crocker. I decided to go for Red Velvet as a bit of a difference. Then I  had a can of Betty Crocker cream cheese icing spare or of course you can whip up your own.

Mix up your cake mix then pour into the cones. I went about 3/4 full so they didn't rise over the top and they turned out perfect. Then once cooled apply your icing. I did try my hardest to make it look like ice cream but i'm still practicing on my piping skills. I chose to decorate mine with chocolate chips because I didn't have any flakes to hand but with a flake stuck in it really looks like a cute little 99!

These would be perfect for a birthday party or a summer party to have as little snacks. Have you ever made these? If you have let me know!
