Unicorn Ice Cream Cone Cakes





Unicorn Cone Cakes


Ingredients:
  • 24 Ice Cream Cones
  • 1 box of Cake Mix and Ingredients Listed on Box
  • 2 Tubs of White or Vanilla Frosting
  • Food Coloring Gel
  • Frosting Piping Bag and Large Star Tip
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Pink Sugar Sprinkles
  • Starburst Unicorn Horns
Directions:
  1. Preheat over and prepare the cake mix according to the box. 
  2. Place the cones in muffin pans. Use foil if needed to keep the cones from tipping over, or just have a steady hand when moving the pans. 
  3. Fill each cone leaving at least 1/2 inch of space from the top of the cone. This will give the cake batter space to rise. I learned this the hard way. 
  4. Bake the cake for about 12-15 minutes Keep an eye on the cake and check it to see if it is baked through. It could take more or less time depending on the mix you have. 
  5. Move cone cakes to a cooling rack. 
  6. Prepare your frosting. Separate the white frosting into 3rds, keeping one 3rd white. Using food coloring turn one 3rd pink and the other purple. Using the gel color will keep the frostings consistency, if you use liquid it could make the frosting runny. 
  7. Make sure your tip is in the piping bag. Scoop the frosting into the bag switching colors with each scoop. Do not stir the colors together. As you squeeze the frosting out of the bag it will swirl together. 
  8. Top each of your cone cakes with frosting once they are cooled.
  9. Prepare your Unicorn Horns (click the link for the directions).
  10. Make the ear with the mini marshmallows. Cut one marshmallow in half diagonally along the side with a clean scissors. Dip the sticky parts in sugar sprinkles. 
  11. Place the horn in the center of the frosted cones and then the ears on each side of the horn. 
  12. Use a cake pan with a sheet of colored tissue paper laid in it to hold the cones. 
  13. Enjoy!
