My friend Jac is a fun Mom. For 2 years now, I have loved that she made one of my favourite childhood treats - the ice cream cone cupcake - for her oldest little Mouse to take to school to share with her friends for her birthday. For 2 years, I have been telling her to make them in the microwave. For 2 years, she has ignored my ever-so-helpful tip (that she did not ask for, by the way.) Actually, I think a more accurate description might be 1 year of ignoring, 1 year of trying my unsolicited advice only to create a small disaster in the microwave. (Sorry about that, Jac!)
Anyway, for 2 years I've been waiting anxiously to be a similarly fun Mom and make ice cream cone cupcakes for Talia to share with her little friends. The time is now. Behold, the Ice Cream Cone Cupcake:
Too bad that since this picture was taken, the cones have softened and they have all fallen in on top of themselves, before Talia could take them to daycare tomorrow. Sigh. (And I didn't even make them in the microwave!!!) At least we still had these adorable little mini cupcakes to share with Playgroup this morning:
Too bad our 2 year old friend Olivia "helped" us by tossing them down the stairs, resulting in the cupcakes turning into one cupcake-icing-sprinkles ball in the corner of a tupperware dish. Double sigh.
Birthday Week is not exactly off to a roaring start, baking-wise. Dear Baby Jesus, please let the Elmo cake turn out.
