To make ice cream cone cupcakes you will need:
125g self raising flour
125g caster sugar
125g softened butter
2 tablespoons milk
a few drops of vanilla flavouring
6 flat bottomed ice cream cones or cupcake cases if you have none
flake chocolate and sprinkles to decorate
Preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF and arrange the ice cream cones onto a baking tray Or line a muffin tin with baking cases
Put all the ingredients except for the milk in a bowl and mix with an electrix mixer till smooth.
Add the milk to make a soft batter
Add the vanilla extract
Spoon the mix into your prepared cones or cases. If using cones, spoon a couple of tablespoons of batter in each cone, be careful not to overfill.
Put in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cup cakes are cooked and golden on top.
Leave the cones to cool for a couple of minutes before piercing the ends of each cone to allow heat escape. This will help prevent the cone from turing soggy during cooling.
When completely cold decorate with white buttercream icing, a flake and some coloured sprinkles for that “99” look.
