A while back I saw a bunch of 'cakes in a cone' - they looked great so i had to try them! They turned out great - ie the kids and parents loved them but I wasn't 100% happy. I didn't like that the cones had lost their crispness - they were fresh and crispy but after baking they tasted softer or stale - (if you know what I mean) - I'm assuming it was form the moisture in the cake batter.... Is there anyway to do this and keep the cones fresh and crisp?

Instead of using cones to bake the cupcakes in, bake the cupcakes in the usual way and slot into the top of the cone when cold removing the paper case first. they may be top heavy so need some sweets in the bottom, or put two cakes in and layers of frosting.

thanks Sharon24! I like the idea of adding candy at the bottom! my only concern is that the kids that will be eating these are only 3 yrs old so worried that the 'top' will roll or fall off while they are eating... hmmmm but the cake layering version may work - it think it may stick together better...
