Sunday my middle daughter, Abby, turned four! We celebrated at home with her favorite ice cream cone cupcakes.
In a very uncharacteristic move, Abby requested a pretty low-key weekend. She asked if we could go to Chic-Fil-A because they have a playground (which we did on Saturday, since they are closed on Sundays), make cupcakes, and open presents. Those were all pretty easy requests to accommodate.
We always make our cupcakes in ice cream cones because that’s the way my mom made them for me when I was a little girl.
It’s very easy to make ice cream cone cupcakes!
All you need is:
-Ice cream cones
-The things it says on the box you need in order to make the cake batter (eggs, oil, etc.)
Just make the batter according to the package directions, then fill the cones about 3/4 full with raw cake batter, place them in muffin tins, and bake according to the directions on the box for cupcakes. (Sometimes it helps keep them steady if you bake them in a muffin tin.) We found that 1 box of cake mix made 21 cupcake cones. Top them with your choice of icing and sprinkles.
The kids love making ice cream cone cupcakes because it is easy for them to help, and they get to decorate and eat them as well.
After the cupcakes we had a scavenger hunt to find her presents. (Dolls from the movie Brave.)
Welcome to four, Abigail!
