I'm trying to learn how to make cone cupcakes. Some sites say to put batter in the cones and bake and some site say to put the batter in a muffin tin then put the cone on top (upside down). What do all you experts say is the best way? Thanks!
I've only done it 1 way - batter in the cone and they came out great. Just whatever you do, don't overfill the cone
I did it the other way. I place MM's in the bottom of the cone then stuffed with cupcakes I had baked separtately, added icing and done. My son had them prior to with MM's in the bottom and loved the special treat. Plus I was worried about the texture of the cone after the cupcakes had bake in them.
It is my understanding that it can be done either way. I think it is a preference thing.
Ive done them by putting cake mix straight into the cone(only half fill) and then bake as normal in the oven.
Kids love them.
It depends upon what you intend for the texture of your cone. The batter baked in the cone softens it a bit it to give almost a stale feel. Baking a cupcake and placing it in the top of the cone keeps the cone crisp.
I prefer to bake it right in the cone, and I fill it right to where the cup meets the cone (I hope that makes sense!) so that it just barely puffs out of the cone when it's finished. =]
