How on earth could I forget to post about my Ice Cream Cup Cakes. Talk about a success.
Remember when I found a link to them and blogged it? I sincerley thought that they might be a hit for James’s Birthday Party and I was right!!
They were so easy to do. Put in the paper patty pans in the tray. Fill with cake mix (I used chocolate cause that’s what his birthday cake was) plonk on an ice cream cone and bake as normal.
When cold pull off the paper patty pan, ice with what ever colour icing your little heart desires and pop on some sprinkles or whatever else you can find.
Just a hint though – use flat bottomed ice cream cones not the pointy ones like I did cause you can’t sit them upright.
The little boys all thought it was pretty cool that James had ice creams at his party and they all reached for one straight away.
“Ohh” says one, “it’s cake!”
“Keep eating”, says another “there’s ice cream in the middle.”
“I haven’t found the ice cream yet” says a third.
Meanwhile I’m holding my breath hoping James wouldn’t give it away.
“Darn it” says the first boy “it’s all cake. Pass the Party Pies please.”
So the Ice Cream Cone Cakes were abandoned in favor of party pies and sausage roll and Birthday Cake that had Freddo Frogs on it.
The girls I might add loved these and we could seriously see them being made in quantity and used for a Birthday Cake. Just think – self service and you don’t even have to slice up the cake and try to make sure everyone gets an even size piece or has the same amount of lollies on it……roflmol.
