Cupcake Cones

My grandmother used to make these for me when I was a kid and I thought they were the best things ever. No matter how old you are they are just perfect to give you a great pick me up. And if you have kids they will go crazy. You can use your favorite cake mix of frosting and decorate any way you like.

1 box of strawberry cake mix
1 can of strawberry frosting
1 cup frosting(see recipe below)
walnuts, strawberries and sprinkles for deco (optional)
1 box of ice cream cones

1. Make cake mix per box directions. Then very gently fill the cone up, leaving about an inch from the top do it has room to rise. After you have done this CAREFULLY place in a pie pan or other dish with high sides.

2. Bake for about 20-30 minutes. You must watch because the time will be longer then usual since the cake is higher. Check with a toothpick to make sure it is clean (if not it needs to bake longer). Allow to cool.

frosting:
1/2 cup cream cheese
1/2 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
2 tablespoons powdered sugar

1. In a large bowl add cream cheese, sugar and butter. Mix until creamy with peaks.

2. With a decorating bag or plastic bag carefully pipe frosting onto cupcake tops.
