Valentine's Day Cupcake Cones

I made these cupcake cones for Domenic's Valentine's Day party at school. Angelo has an MRI scheduled for Friday so I also made some to take to the hospital to give to the kids at the infusion clinic. :)

They were very easy to make. Once you have your cake batter ready, just fill the cones about 3/4 full and then bake them at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or so. I placed the cones directly on a deep pan and they stayed in place if you put them close enough together.

Once they were out of the oven and cooled I spooned candy melts along the edges and then sprinkled with colored sugar. Once that was done then I frosted the tops and placed a candy heart in the frosting.

The tricky part is transporting them.   I found that each one fit perfectly in a plastic cup. Once they are in the cup they pretty much stay in place. You will hear them rattle around but they will be fine. The frosting didn't smudge at all and the candy melts had already hardened.

I then wrapped them in cute sulafane bags and tied with ribbon.

I hope you all enjoy!!!
