The Weather’s Heating Up- Grab an Ice Cream Cone [Cupcake?!]

Alright that title is obnoxiously long. But what I am about to share with you deserves- nay, demands– an outrageously long and ridiculous title. I’m too excited right now. I can’t take it. I can tell the suspense is killing you…. GAH!!!

Ice cream cone cupcakes. I don’t even know where to begin. You’re drooling staring at your computer screen. I know you are. Don’t lie. I am too.

Let me explain myself. Yesterday, I had a baking adventure with my best baking friend Sutton! Sutton is fabulous. We share two very important passions: shoes, and baking. Hence, we decided to have ourselves a night of baking! As we pondered what to bake, I thought of these little beautiesΒ from the super-duper-amazing Confessions of a Cookbook Queen. As soon as we took a look, we were sold! So we started our adventure of the Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes.

These were not as hard as one would imagine. Step one: make the toppers.

This part was shockingly easy! Melt the chocolate of your choice (we chose semi-sweet) and then make 24 little puddles on a sheet covered with wax paper. Then, dip donut holes in the chocolate and sit them in each puddle. Add the jimmies of your choice, and then top with a sugar cone. Tada- your toppers are ready to set in the fridge!

Next, make whatever icing you choose. We chose to use my super-amazing (I’m so modest :)) buttercream frosting recipe I shared in the Flower Power post! It was so perfect.

They look so dainty and sweet! Yeah, not for long….

Alright, a little chocolate drizzle and we’re on our way…

Oh yeah. There we go. Noooooow we’re cookin’! Stop trying to eat your screen. I know, it’s hard.

Disregard that one with the chocolate smudge. It’s bugging me. But hey, our imperfections are what make us perfect right? I love you little imperfect, delicious cone cupcake.

I just can’t get over how cute they are. My friends and brother devoured them. My brother ate 3. I think that may be hazardous to your health…These would be so cute for a 4th of July BBQ- summery and delicious!

And there you have it my friends. The Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes. Otherwise known as my new obsession. So go get your bake on!! These are too cool to ignore πŸ™‚
