The leaders of the women’s group at my church (which is called the Relief Society) organized an online cupcake contest where anyone who wanted to participate could submit a photo of a cupcake creation. This was my contribution. I didn’t win but my entry earned the title of “coolest”! It was a fun way to spend an afternoon especially when you are in social distancing.
6 cupcakes of your choice (I made chocolate chip cupcakes)
1 recipe Buttercream icing, recipe here, colored as desired, I did green, pink and brown
1 ice cream cone
various toppings as desired such as mini chocolate chips, mini M&M’s, sprinkles, toffee bits, red gumball (for the cherry on top)
1 Bake cupcakes and let cool.
2 Make frosting and color as needed.
3 Carefully trim the back of ice cream cone with a serrated knife so that it lays flat on your serving piece. Anchor to platter with squirt of frosting then arrange cupcakes on platter and anchor with frosting.
4 Fill piping bags fitted with #12 tips with your frosting colors. Frost cupcakes from the bottom up and sprinkle with desired toppings.
