The Sugar Mommas try to stay one step ahead of their children (modernmom.com). Surprise is the way to keep them interested.  Why not serve ConeCakes at the next birthday party? This recipe is so easy, yet so impressive. It’s like magic…something we know our kids always respond to happily.
Ingredients:
1 box cake mix in your preferred flavor
12 ice cream cones with the flat bottom
12 cup muffin tin
Sprinkles
Directions:
*Prepare cake batter as instructed on box. You may want to get out your Cake Doctor book for this recipe or try Funfetti Cake mix from Pillsbury. *Place empty ice cream cones in the muffin tin.  We suggest using the Drommar Muffin Tin from IKEA-the muffin cups are deeper and hold the cones more securely.
*Fill each cone 3/4 full with cake batter. Cook according to cake box instructions for cupcakes (usually 18-19 minutes). Remove from heat when cake batter springs back from touch. Cool.
*Make frosting or use store-bought (vanilla works best). Use an angled spatula to frost cupcakes.
*Use your fingers to gently place sprinkles on top of the frosting for a jovial visual effect. We recommend Wilton Jumbo Confetti Sprinkles and Jumbo Daisies Sprinkles for girls or Jumbo Stars Sprinkles and Jumbo Rainbow Nonpareils for boys.
Serve up and listen for squeals of delight.
