It’s time to teepee…your Thanksgiving cupcakes!
For me, Thanksgiving season was always the best
time for craft-making when we were kids! From the trace-your-hand turkey drawings, to construction paper teepees, to thankful trees and more. Thanksgiving was definitely the time to get your craft on!
But I always thought it was even more
fun to get crafty with food. So for your Thanksgiving treats this year, check out these adorable Ice Cream Cone Teepees!!! Made simply with cupcakes baked into ice cream cones, everyone will love making and enjoying these festive little treats.
Here’s the how-to:
The trickiest part is at the beginning. You need to find a way to stand up the ice cream cones so that they can bake in the oven without toppling over. I rigged an aluminum foil baking pan – just turned it upside down, and then cut 12 quarter-sized holes throughout.
Once your pan is ready, secure the ice cream cones in the holes and then fill halfway with cake batter. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the cake batter is cooked. (Also keep an eye on them while baking so that they don’t topple over!)
Once the cakes are baked, immediately remove the cones and use a pair of scissors to snip off the bottom inch or so of the cones while they are still warm (and are less prone to cracking). Let the cones completely cool.
And then dip the bottom of the cone in melted white chocolate, and then coat with sprinkles.
Then dip the other end of the cone in white chocolate, and place some chow mein noodles in the top. Let cool on a sheet of wax or parchment paper.
Then serve them up! Aren’t they adorable??
