I made these for the kids the other day Marble Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes. They are perfect for the kids, parties or to take to a school function. The cake batter is baked into ice cream cones. So the entire thing is edible. I didn't add icing but a nice touch would be to pipe for frosting on top with sprinkles to really look like a soft serve ice cream.
I made a marble cake batter of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. I was aiming for the neopolitan look.
I doubled this recipe and got 16 cone cupcakes.
Marble Small Cakes
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup self-raising flour
1/4 cup milk
Cream butter and sugar.
Add in vanilla.
Beat in egg.
Add flour and milk alternately and mix lightly into a soft dough.
Split equally into three separate bowls. Leave one plain, colour one pink and add cocoa to the third (helps to dissolve cocoa in a little water first before adding to the batter).
Spoon dollops of each batter into cones or papers til 3/4 full. Swirl to form marble effect.Bake in moderate oven for 10-15 mins until cooked.
