I made these for my son's 3rd birthday party. We had an ice cream party by the pool, so I thought these would be cute. Everyone loved them. I baked the cake in the cones the night before the party. I guess I covered them too soon after taking them out of the oven because by the time I was ready to decorate them they were all mushy. I ended up rebaking them about 2hrs before the party. It all worked out in the end.
