Olympic Torch Cupcakes




Olympic Torch Cupcake Cones






What ya need:
Cake Mix
Ice Cream Cones
Oven
Frosting
Toothpicks
Fruit Roll-ups
Yellow food coloring

What ya need to do:

Mix up cake mix

Place ice cream cones in high baking dish
(I used 2 bread/loaf pans)

Spoon cake mix in ice cream cones until 2/3 full

Bake @ 350 for 30 min (oven times vary)
*After 20 min, I took my cones out of the oven
and moved them around in the pan for even baking*

Let cool

Mix up yellow frosting

Pipe on some yellow (I used 1M wilton tip)

Cut fruit roll up to have a "flame-like" appearance

Wrap around toothpick to get it to stick up 
nice and tall like a flame should

Poke into cupcake torch center!!

Sit back and admire your creative genius!!



FUN! 

These cupcakes probably are not new or unique in concept. I haven't been "around" the sweet blogs lately to see what has been posted for the Olympics but I am excited to see what has been put out by some amazing blogs I frequent. I have been occupied lately by some new and quite interesting adventures but I will always come back to the "sweet" things in my life eventually.....

These are fantastic. We missed the torch coming through our city which was a real shame since it was a once in a lifetime event. I love the yellow frosting and the fruitroll up. We don't have fruit rolls here but we have something similar I think (if they're still around). I'm wondering if the cones would be able to take a gold luster spray too or whether they'd go a little soft.

I've heard that if you wrap the cones in aluminum foil they won't turn out soft, but stay crispy instead. Anyone know if this is true?
