What is a cone cake?
A cone cake is a cupcake baked into an ice cream cone. During baking and decorating it’s often challenging to get all of the cones to remain upright. The chances are good that you’ll end up with an unfortunate magical mess.
Enter Yippee Cone Cakes bases. The bases assure your cakes will behave themselves throughout the process. The bases keep the cones standing during baking, decorating, and serving. They may even catch drips to save some mess. Plus, they are pretty and add extra color to your masterpiece.
Kari worked with Yippee on her Chocolate Covered Strawberry Valentine Cone Cakes and was so happy with them that she was eager to do one for our blog, as well!
Cupcakes in a cone are easier to eat with less mess at parties. Since the container is edible, just take off the base and chow down. For kids, it’s easier to hold the cone than try to remove a traditional cupcake wrapper. Maybe even prevent an extra bath time? No promises here, but cone cakes are definitely more fun to eat.
