You may have heard of these delicious creations… but I had to share the confectionery delights because they are making my mouth water right now.
Baked inside a crispy cone, these individual desserts combine the perfect sundae (toppings and all) with the moist, deliciousness of a birthday cupcake. It’s a no-drip, no-plate & utensil solution for the perfect kid’s party treat.
It’s as easy as pouring a bit of batter into each cone, baking and decorating.
For the complete directions (including just how to bake such an unusually shaped dessert), follow the jump. Read more »

Cupcakes make the perfect little dessert be it for a wedding or kids party. But how to make them even more delectable and, oh, I don’t know, take it to the next level? How to add something unexpected and delicious – to make your dessert so much more than just a piece of ‘cake’? Fill ‘er up!
Here are a few finger-lickin’ ideas to make even the Hostess Cupcake officianado beam. Whether you’re a chocolate, lemon or chipotle (yes, chipotle) loving baker, these recipes are sure to get your attention (and those of your guests!).
“Why do you fill me up, fill me up, buttercup baby, just to let me down…”
My favorite way to fill cupcakes is by using a melon baller to remove a small piece from the center of each. Squeeze a small amount of filling (using a plastic zip lock bag with a pastry tip in one corner) in each cupcake hole and frost as usual (refrigerating between these two final steps can help keep your filling out of the frosting).
To really spice it up, try this Chocolate Chipotle del Muertos (with a dash of lime) recipe from Cupquake! Sure to knock at least a few socks off.
