yes, the x's in an upside down box inside a cake box will work well. or, if you set them in a box, you can stagger them so they fit snug up against the walls of the box, glue the cones down with a dab of icing to help. they will start to fall though once some are taken out, so the x's will work better i think.
i agree, 3 days is much too long. same day is best, one day early at most, but these really dont take long.i did 3 dozen the other day in two hours. that was making two different scratch recipes, making bc, decorating and boxing.
to the poster who asked for a photo:
and for instructions:
set cones in a mini cupcake pan, fill just to the point where it fills the bottom half (where the narrow part stops and the wide ridge starts), about 2 tb of batter so they wont overflow. bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes, test with a toothpick. cool, use a wilton tip 1m to make a nice swirl of buttercream, add sprinkles right away so they stick (i do it almost after each one, otherwise they hardly stick) and top with a sour cherry ball or real cherry or red gum ball. thats it. easiest cupcakes i've ever made and you can make about 3 dozen on one batch of batter.
