Countdown to the Party

I am committed to one new party recipe per weekend to hopefully avoid party weekend failure.  This weekend we gave these a try.   I was very concerned with the project as ice cream cones seem so breakable but this was a relatively easy project that worked well.  Besides the trick of avoiding getting batter anywhere but directly in the cones, I feel pretty comfortable making these for the party.  LO was beside herself with excitement.  A CAKE IN A CONE!
Her cake decorating skills have been called into question during a recent cookie decorating session so my plans for her decorating one of the cakes may be off.

I mentioned to LO that she may be fired as sous chef for the great bake-off due to her consumption of finished goods.  She claims innocence but clearly there is evidence supporting my argument.
