When I was a little girl my Mom did the coolest thing for one of my birthday parties. She filled ice cream cones up with candy and then put ice cream on the top. When I found this recipe in a vintage Better Homes and Gardens Book, I was reminded of that sweet party detail. With this recipe, you bake the cake in the ice cream cones… and the cones don't burn!
Soda Fountain Cakes
To make the cake, you just need a package of flat bottom ice cream cones and a box of cake mix (I used yellow). Set your cones in a muffin pain. Make the cake batter as directed, filling each cone to within one inch of the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove cakes from pan and let them completely cool.
- 6 tablespoons of butter or margarine
- 4 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla
Beat the butter or margarine with a hand mixer on medium speed until it's fluffy. Gradually add about half the powered sugar. Beat in the milk and vanilla and gradually add the rest of the powdered sugar. If the frosting isn't spreadable, you can add a little more milk. Decorate with nuts, sprinkles and cherries. You can also cut straws in half to finish the look.
