"I am 66 years old and my Mom made ice cream cone cupcakes for our birthdays when we were kids, I made them for Bible School last year for a special treat and I gave the recipe to a young co-worker for her childs birthday. She was delighted to have it. You can also use a cake mix baking in the same way."

"Very easy to make, makes as many as it says. Put icing in a freezer bag then cut the edge for easier frosting.

so Yummy!"
