I had to make these, aren't they just special. Go visit Holly at the above link.  Her pictures of her cupcakes in a cone are beautiful. She is a very talented gal.

Only wish my Morgan was a little girl again, I would be making these for her birthday.  

Looks like ice cream, lick's like ice cream. But it's not ice cream, it's not frozen yogurt, it's not sweet frosting either.  The icing is made with frozen whipped topping, cream cheese and instant pudding. These would be ideal for a child's birthday party.   

Make your own cake batter or use a cake mix. Prepare as package directions filling the cones about 2/3 full of batter.  Using flat bottom ice cream cones. These should be made and decorated the day of the party.  Because of the moisture in the cake batter the cones can get soft.

I mixed in 1 cup of coconut in the frosting. If you want to use your pasty bag to swirl the icing on top then make sure the coconut has been chopped fine so the coconut doesn't clog the pasty tip.  Use your imagination for decorating, I did use some magic shell chocolate topping that freezes in seconds.  I had to put them in the freezer for that to happen. But after it sat in freezer for a bit, I took it out and it stayed hard. You could sprinkle them with coconut, chopped candies, sprinkles, and top it with a cherry.  I used a red cinnamon candy.   

Place the cones in muffin pans and fill.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-18 minutes. This will depend on the amount of batter and the size of the ice cream cone.
