Cake Filled Ice Cream Cones

The one thing I love to do is to cook. I can look at recipes all day long and get great ideas for planning menus.  I watch all the different cooking shows on tv, I surf the internet, I look at pintrest, read different magazines and talk with people to exchange recipes.  Just recently I had the best time baking with my granddaughter.  Being only eight years old she is showing an interest in cooking.  I remember when she was little and I use to babysit her we would do some baking together.  I would make some bread dough cut off a piece for her and she would shape it.  Then I would bake it and we would give it to Mummy when she came to pick her up.  Or I would make pizza put it on a pan for her and she would put all the toppings on the dough. Baking cookies she would roll them in her little hands and put them on the baking sheet.  It was such fun but it also created memories.  I know that most of it she won’t remember because she was too little but I will.  These are the times that are the most precious to me.

This recipe is so easy.  I asked her if she wanted to make it and she was so excited.  So I set everything up for her and just stood by and told her the steps.  Hopefully one day she will become a great cook and grow to love it as I do.

Line pan with foil.  Pour batter into cones.  It was such a joy to watch her.  She was concentrating and doing beautifully.

Top with sprinkles and bake.  I’m sure this was her favourite part.

They came out absolutely fantastic. Cool. I placed them in a plastic bag and put them in the freezer.

Next choose your cone and place a scoop of ice cream on top, along with some sprinkles or whatever your heart desires.

This is what dreams are made of.  Look at that beautiful face ready to enjoy a treat she made all by herself.  Her Baba is so proud of her. Life doesn’t get better then this.

RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

1 Box Cake

1 Box Of Flat Bottomed Ice Cream Cones

Ice Cream Of Your Choice

Decorations of your choice, such as sprinkles, gummy bears, chocolate chips, coconut etc.

PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS

Line a pan with foil.  Place ice cream cones on top.  Place box cake into a bowl and add all the ingredients.  Mix according the instructions on the box. Then take the batter and pour  into the cones about 1/3 –  1/2 way.  Bake at 350 degrees until toothpick comes clean.  Approximately 35 to 40 minutes.  Remove from oven and cool. Top with ice cream and decorations of your choice.

There is nothing more gratifying then to watch the kids digging in and baking, then enjoying what they have made.  I remember her Daddy going to his Baba’s house and running straight for the kitchen cupboards not only making a mess for Baba but also helping her.  She use to call him Cookman which was ingenious on her part. Because he became a fantastic cook. She would be proud of him.
