I first made these cupcakes for Emma-Lea's first birthday almost 18 years ago this coming August. I have since then wanted to master making them because that first time was a little bit of a disaster.
But when I saw how this person made them on her blog, I had to try it. http://lickthebowlgood.blogspot.com/2013/10/ice-cream-cone-cupcakes-pillsbury.html. I think I first saw this method on Martha Stewart's TV show a few years ago. I used a cake mix that I exchanged water and oil for buttermilk and butter and used the same amounts as directed on the box.
