Ice cream cone cupcake recipe

I have been wanting to make ice cream cone cupcakes for ages, after a failed attempt a few years ago I noticed the supermarkets have the icecream cones back in which they only seem to have in for a few months. They are perfect for children's party's or to make with kids and they don't melt like icecream.
My son is currently obsessed with icecream but he always bites the bottom on the cone and the icecream melts through so I thought we could do some baking together and have some yummy treats. They are also great at a summer BBQ or to take on picnics.

 They are super easy to make and will work with most cake mixtures and if you really want to save time a box mix will work too. The cases are just Askeys cones (flat bottom) and the trick to making these work is not to overfill, if you slightly over fill they will rise and spill over the sides and wont bake correctly. I fill up to the band under the Askeys logo which gave the perfect rise. Also always wrap foil around the bottom to secure in place whilst baking and don't over mix your mixture.
