|Ice cream cones in February? |
Well, they are particularly appealing when they are Meringue Cupcake Cones!
This uber sweet and uber cute idea comes from Home Stories of A 2 Z.
|Step One: Mix up your favorite cupcake batter and pour it into flat-bottomed ice cream cones.|
Katie is using a gfcf cake batter into gfcg ice cream cones.
|Be careful to give them a little head room as the batter does rise a bit.|
|Step Three: Next, make Royal Icing. Beat together |
1 egg white
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Slowly add 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar. .
Blend it on low speed until it's smooth and creamy. Place some on the top of the cone. This is your "glue."
|It doesn't matter if some leaks out the sides.|
|Place the meringues on top of the icing and allow them to dry. |
If you didn't put them on before, now top with the reserved M&M's "glued" on with some icing.
|You can wrap in treat bags and give them to special Valentines, |
serve at a party or for a special family treat.
Keep in an airtight container.
These are best eaten the day they are made, so they are great to take to a party.
