Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes, Mini-sized

Tomorrow is our "just because" ice cream party.  While shopping for sprinkles, magic shell and other various project materials (we are making ice cream playdough and painting with shaving cream mixed with glue--it stays fluffy), I found these adorable little babies...

We have ice cream and chocolate dipped sugar cones covered, but what about cupcakes?  I've made full size ice cream cone cupcakes...small ones--even better, especially when the kids will be eating ice cream too.

So preheat your oven to 350, mix up a cake mix, line up the cones on a cookie sheet (the little ones actually stand up better than the big ones do), fill the cups 2/3 with batter and bake 15 minutes.  Easy-peasy.  They are so small that from turning the oven on to icing and sprinkles was a few minutes shy of an hour.

To show how little and cute these are, I tried to find something that everyone knows the size of to compare.  The bananas were hanging next to the stove...
Well, that's better, they are about the size of a shot glass.

Cute. Cute. Cute.  All ready for tomorrow.
