Ice Cream Cone Cakes


Ice Cream Cone Cakes

[40 Minutes]

Here is a new twist in birthday cakes--individual ice cream cone cakes. Your child will be delighted to share these with friends!

You'll need:

• cake mix (follow instructions) • flat-bottomed ice cream cones • cookie sheet • bowl • spoon • prepared canned frosting • candy sprinkles

What to do:

  1. Invite your child to help you prepare the cake mix according to directions. (She can help stir, add ingredients, even measure when you put a rubber band around the measuring cup on the correct measurement.)
  2. Pour the batter into the ice cream cones.
  3. Line up the cones on a cookie sheet and bake as cupcakes.
  4. Cool. Invite your child to frost and decorate the cakes.

Let's Talk: Ideas to Explore Together.

  • How did you bake these cakes?
  • What do you usually eat inside an ice cream cone? Why is this different?

Useful information:

While you are cooking together, your child is developing small muscle skills, and learning to follow directions.
