ice cream cone cupcakes

Saturday, July 24, 2010

On vacation we celebrated my sister Kristen's birthday (as a surprise).  My oldest sister came up with the idea to make her ice cream cone cupcakes to celebrate.  Apparently they had been a part of Kristen's favorite birthday memory - Mom made them for one of her parties as a child and she and all her friends had a great time decorating them.

Apparently the birthday was before me, or at least before I could remember.  But have I otherwise been living under a rock?  Why didn't I know about this clever and fun cupcake?  How perfect for a toddler!  And how much fun to decorate!  Here's Caleb's masterpiece from the event.

Blue Cricket Design did a post about them recently coincidentally and had a great idea for making them more like a double scoop.  Make some mini-cupcakes and attach to the top with frosting.  Adorable!  Click the photo for the link.
