because i rarely have an original idea of my own, i tried out bakerella’s cakeball cones (with an adaptation here and there, of course.)
i found some little wafer cones at target:
and then i went to town, cakeball style…
they might actually be easier to make than flinging them in mini cupcake wrappers
but the problem is this…. you may be wondering, “how on earth will you transport them to the picnic on saturday?” and my answer:
i don’t know. (that one above was set-up, just like bakerella did)
actually, i like to take my regular ones places in chinese take-out containers. (c’mon little cakeballs, we’re going for a ride!) the containers are great because they easily fit a dozen in them. you can fit a baker’s half dozen with the cones this way. and the lids are raised, so there’s little risk of them getting squashed.
the cones add a little taste of summer to the classic cakeball. YUM!
