Happy Birthday America & Happy Birthday to our little blog! Our Blissfully Delicious Life is officially 1 year old! With over 150 recipes & 23,000 hits, I'd say it's been a good year!! To celebrate, we made these super cute cupcakes. They were so easy, I used a store bought cake mix & frosting. Truth be told, I wanted to make homemade butter cream frosting, but the only 4th of July Sprinkles I could find were sold with the frosting (Funfetti). So that's what we made. The little one had a blast making them & even more fun eating them! Thank you so much for sharing the past year with us & we hope you all have a happy & safe 4th of July!
1 Box Cake Mix
2 Cans of Frosting
24 Ice Cream Cones
Preheat oven & mix the cupcake batter according to the box's directions. (I highly recommend finding a cute helper like I did!)
Place the ice cream cones, standing upright, in the cups of cupcake tin. (I made some in cones & some in paper cups.)
Fill the cones about half full with batter. You want to be careful not to over fill the cones. I filled them just about to the top of the base of the cone.
Bake, according to the package directions, about 20 minutes or so.
Allow the cupcakes to cool completely.
Then pipe frosting in a swirl, like soft serve ice cream. (I used a Wilton's large star tip.)
Add sprinkles & enjoy!!
Note: These cupcakes are best if made the day that you want to eat them. The moisture from the cake tends to make the ice cream cones soggy after a day or so.
HAPPY 4th OF JULY!!
