Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Just for fun, serve these cupcake cones with a slice of ice cream "cake." Spread softened ice cream in a square or rectangular baking dish. Cover and freeze. Let ice cream stand before serving to soften slightly. Cut "cake" into squares, and serve with cupcake cones.
Make a big splash! Tint the frosting blue for water, and use teddy-bear shaped graham crackers for "people." Add gummy candy rings for inner tubes, gum balls for beach balls and striped gum for inflatable floats.
