Pinterest find: Ice cream cupcake cones tutorial

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)- Looking for a great classroom or party treat for Valentine’s Day? These ice-cream cupcake canes are festive, delicious and easy to eat.  We found the inspiration on Pinterest and had to try it for ourselves. We turned to our Modern Day Mom, Carly Munoz to put it to the test.

This project was perfect for me!  I’m a busy mom but still believe in homemade when it comes to party treats.  My husband is a second grade teacher and needed something for the class party so the ice cream cupcake cones seemed like a great fit.  I made a few minor tweaks!  I chose Hershey Kisses instead of M&M’s to keep these treats safe for the peanut-free students. I also did some sparkle sugar on the top and added an additional kiss for good measure!

I started mixing my cupcake batter at 6pm and finished decorating around 9pm.  During that time I also did the dishes, made dinner, cleaned up and stopped to look for a mini Ninja Turtle pen that my 4-year-old is frantic to find. So if my night sounds like yours is, no fear!  By doing a little multitasking I squeezed in an episode of Grey’s Anatomy while I decorated the cupcakes. #winning

Here’s my step-by-step guide
