Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes?? - Page 2

post #16 of 26
I love to make cupcakes. Using the leaf tip #70 I make the petals and the center of the flowers are made with a small star tip 14 or 16. My cupcakes are in the gallery. Go to wedding cakes and then mini cakes. They were really easy to make. Hope that helps as an alternative..

Anyone had any success transporting those cupcake ice cream cones? I made them once and they were really good but they all tipped over in my van on the way to the party. I had them in muffin tins but it didn't seem to make a difference. I think Keebler sells a pan but it is expensive and doesn't hold many. They were for friends so no one cared but I was almost in tears. My hubby laughed about it and tried to make me feel better by saying since some were iced chocolate and some were iced vanilla that they ended up as swirls with sprinkles.

THANKS!

Hey Tonia,
if you have a Wal Mart or a Sams in your area then I am sure you still see the Cokes in the Cases, Well you take those box bottoms and you flip them over, Cut out Circles, then Cover with White Freezer paper and Wa La Ice Cream Cone Carriers! and its not expensive, just go to wal mart and take the cokes and and set on the shelf. hahaha. I use this all the time, and you dont have to worry about weither you get it back or not.

Have a Great Weekend!

Hey Ge,
I am sorry I got the end of the post and read and responded before I saw all of yours. The Ice Cream Cone Cup Cakes are Great! I just Love them, they are Very Simple to make, and depending on what you do on Top as to How Much icing you will use. I use the Great big Star tip and Stripe the bag with Colors and then I Twist the Icing onto the Tops of the cones and it looks Just like a Real Ice Cream Cone, and the Kids LOVE it, hahaha,, How could they NOT? I mean All that Icing, Man they are Zooming, and I posted just before this on transporting them. O when you cook them use Cup cake pans lined with foil to hold them up and fill them about 3/4's full and then bake like Cup Cakes. just check them with your pick.
Hope this helps you. icon_lol.gificon_biggrin.gif

The directions for these is actually on some ice cream cone boxes. You can also order a carrier for transporting them. I've made them a few times and transported them in a box with high enough sides to support them and keep them from flipping over. The kids do love them!

I have made these once and found it hard to transport them. Now I take a short flat top box, like a flat of pop canes or veggie cans come in, then I use old egg cartons, turn them over and cut out the holes where the eggs would sit and you have a safe way of transporting these tall little devils. I haven't had one fall over since.

Hope this helps!!

Smileyface - I wish I would of read that story after I made the cupcakes instead of before! icon_surprised.gificon_lol.gif

SweetCreations , thecakemaker & Fishercakes: thanks for responding & the instructions on transporting. I usually don't think of those things since I don't ever deliver my cakes. I'll have to try these ideas out and see which one works the best.

I love the fact I can get on here and get so much information. It's great that everyone shares how they do things and helps others. I don't really have any friends or family who decorate cakes so it helps to come here. icon_biggrin.gif

I transport mine by taking a shirt box...top and bottom and putting them together. I then use an exacto knife and cut X's in the top. I push the X's through just enough for the cone to fit snug in the middle.

Thanks everyone, I KNEW there would be someone on here that would let me (us) know how to transport these things successfully!!! I am planning on making them again and now I know to get some cardboard crates, boxes or egg cartons so they will arrive fine this time! I had mine in rubbermaid container so they didn't get totally ruined, they just got smushed all over each other.


ge978, I am glad you did see my story. I would hate for that to happen to you, I was so disappointed. Now you know how to transport them and you would have them fall over. I am sure you will be fine transporting them now. I didn't think they would fall over so I never thought to put them into cardboard cartons like the others here were smart enough to do, DUH!!

Good Luck!! They really are a cute and neat idea to make.
