Hi Guys- I was playing around with some cake scraps today and came up with these... http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1243518

I bought a pkg of ice cream cones last week, but when I opened them they were so small my 2 yr old wouldn't eat them icon_eek.gif so I made cake truffle cones icon_biggrin.gif
I coated the inside with chocolate, then stuffed cake truffle filling into the cone (I left about 1/4" of room at the top) Then I covered in chocolate and gently smooshed a cake truffle on top. After that chocolate set I dipped the whole top in chocolate and put sprinkles on icon_smile.gif
I figured these would be something new that my kids would like thumbs_up.gif
Happy Cakin' icon_wink.gif

These are so cute!!! The kids are going to love them (and the kid in the rest of us will as well icon_wink.gif ). Very sweet and innovative. Thanks for the idea! I've got some grandchildren who would love them!

BTW, there may have been variations of it, but I don't ever recall seeing these. I know about the cakes being baked in ice cream cones and then either ice cream or frosting with sprinkles on top. Yum!

Thanks again for sharing! Too cool! icon_cool.gificon_lol.gif

Thanks for sharing this idea--these are TOO cute! I don't think I've seen these little cones before, but I'm gonna start looking!

Thanks guys! I just checked and the cones are Kids Cones made by Joy. I didn't realize the picture on the box said actual size icon_lol.gif

I didn't know they still made that size! I used to buy them for my kids when they were little and then after that, they were used for my dog!

This is the cutest idea ever! Good job thinking it up for cakeballs! Love it!! The ideas are flowing!

I don't know if anyone has a Wegman's near them, but that's where I bought them. There are 60 cones in the box, and I think I paid 2 bucks... Thanks everyone!

I had leftover cake so I'm making a batch right now. How did you put the chocolate inside the cones?

The chocolate is too thick to run in on its own, and I'm having to spend a lot of time smushing it in.

I used a combination of confectionery disks and chocolate chips.

I used Ghirardelli chocolate for candy making with a drop of veg oil. I just took a spoon and started to pour the chocolate in. I started at the top and just kept turning and shaking till it was covered. I hope that makes sense icon_confused.gif ! Then I put some of the truffle filling in, covered with a little more choc and then put a cake ball on top. Let the chocolate set, then dip the whole top in. Maybe I'll take pictures step by step because I'm terrible at explaining things! My mind thinks it but my fingers can't type it icon_cry.gif

Actually, that's a good explanation. I just don't have the chocolate melted enough. Next time I'll have to add some oil or shortening. Thanks!

What do you mean by truffle filling?
I've made cake truffles (aka cake balls) before and know how to do that, but I'm not sure what truffle filling is.
Great idea, by the way, and thanks for sharing. I really want to try this sometime.

It's the same thing. Cake truffle filling/cake ball filling... just your cake scraps mixed with flavored coffee creamer. I found a new one last night that I'm going to try later today. It's called Italian Cream... Yum!

So, basically what you're saying is: You took your cake crumbs and mixed them like you're making cake truffles ~ then stuffed some of that mixture into the cone that was coated with chocolate. Then put an actual cake truffle on top then dipped the top in chocolate? Sorry to ask so many questions; I just got a little confused.

Yes, that's how I did it thumbs_up.gif The only difference is after I stuffed the cone with the cake crumb mixture, I put more chocolate on top and then a cake truffle... then I let that set (so when I turned it upside down the truffle wouldn't fall off) and then dipped it in chocolate. I am making these again this week and will take pics because I suck at explaining things icon_razz.gif

Thank you. No, you're fine at explaining ~ it just takes me a while to get my brain wrapped around a new concept. icon_redface.gif .....but I think I've got it now. icon_biggrin.gif

Oh my gosh, that one's my favorite! So good as the liquid in WASC. Delish!

That is a GREAT idea!!! thumbs_up.gif

I have left over vanilla cake and espresso bc left over and I definitely want to try this. Question...I used the recipe for cake balls from this forum but my cake balls didn't come out so good. icon_sad.gif They came out very grainy and soggy. I may have put too much BC. What consistency should the cake balls be when the cake and bc are combined?

Thanks again for sharing with us! icon_biggrin.gif

A few weeks back I tried to make cake truffles but the mixture was really wet. I put them in the over to dry out, but they started to spread out, so I cranked up the heat and made cookies instead. I brought them to my Michael's (where I teach) and everyone loved them!

I add just enough liquid to bind them. Not a drop more or they are too squishy. I haven't made them with bc yet, so I can't help you there thumbs_up.gif

Okay guys... I just made some and I took a picture of the steps. Each cone is another step in the process...
Cone one is the chocolate coating on the inside.
Cone two is the cake truffle filling stuffed inside.
Cone three is the chocolate covering the cake truffle fillng.
Cone four is the cakeball put on top until the chocolate sets.
Cone five is the end result.
Hope this helps usaribbon.gif

The pics are in my photos! I can't figure out how to post pics in the forums.... icon_cry.gif Thanks foxy!! I used the pampered chef cookie scoop to make the "icecream" balls on top so they's look as realistic as possible. The only prob I had was on some I didn't put enough chocolate under the cake ball to adhere it well. So my only recommendation is to make sure there's enough at the top of the cone....but not so much that it spills down the sides when you put the top on..... icon_redface.gif had that happen too! Love these love these!!! thumbs_up.gif

I don't know... chocolate dripping down the sides sounds like summer and ice cream cones to me! Image
