The B family kindly invited us over for a BBQ one summer holiday evening and I asked if there was anything I could bring, Mrs B suggested perhaps I might like to make some cakes as I seem to be getting pretty good at it by now.
I decided that as I'd seen so many people make ice cream cone cupcakes over the last year that I would quite like to have a bash and this seemed like the ideal excuse.
I started by making a sponge mix and filling some wafer ice cream cones with flat bases with it
And bunged them in the oven until the sponge was risen and golden
I then made some butter cream icing and piped some onto the top of each cupcake and added half a flake
I then drizzled on some raspberry jam
and as a final touch added some hundreds and thousand and chocolate sprinkles and here are the finished cakes
Mrs B had made some cakes herself, a rather interesting combination of raspberries and beetroot (for extra colour) and had turfed them as they tasted like (in her own wonderfully descriptive way) 'a fart in a grocers' so mine were thankfully in comparison gratefully received, although Mr B and myself agreed that they would be a tad tastier if they had had some kind of filling inside the sponge, which just means I'll just have to make them again sometime soon.
