snow cone cupcakes!

Yes folks, these are actual cupcakes..not snow cones made out of ice!
So I'm planning a big circus birthday party....and the other day I was thinking about snow cones. I thought they would be fun for the whole event but didn't know if I wanted to stand behind a snow cone machine making them throughout the whole party. I sat there thinking for a bit, and suddenly came up with the idea of 'snow cone cupcakes'!!! I don't know why I didn't think of them earlier! Just use snow cone papers as cupcake liners and there ya have it!
I made some tester ones tonight :). I want the final ones to be more rounded on top but here's my quick go at 'em. Cute, huh?!
I just filled the snow cone papers with batter..baked them (now that was the tricky part..but guess what, the snow cone holders you see above are metal...so I used them! I was originally going to use chicken wire over a deep pan, which I think would work as well)..and covered the tops with frosting and bright colored sprinkles! I'm so excited about them! I've never seen anything like them. I'm patting myself on the back right now..hehe.
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!

Awesome! I have wanted to do something like this, but with Sugar cones or waffle cones and I couldn't figure out how to bake them without having to make some sort of crazy contraption...this is great!!!
Thanks!
your blog is really cute!

Um... I've also never seen ANYTHING like them! You should be patting yourself on the back right now! Well done! These could get you featured somewhere really cool :-)

Also, I wanted to say that I make my own colored sugar. You just put some sugar in a tupperware bowl, add a few drops of food coloring, put the lid on, and shake! These are too cute! I found them over on One Pretty Thing, although I have been to your blog before. I'm not sure how I would hold them up... I'll think on it and let you know if my brain turns up any ideas.

I can't believe those are cupcakes!! wow! I am doing a circus birthday in a few weeks for my youngest's first birthday. I think those might be a little too advanced for me but they are adorable!!

I'm planning a huge carnival party for my son, not for another year, since we just finished having a superhero party, but with my husband still in school, it requires a lot of advanced planning to financially be able to pull off a fun party. Anyway, I love this idea and MUST do it! Since I'm not expirienced in the baking dept. at all would you please give directions as far as temp. and time to bake. thanks so much. Alex.

Now when is snowing i prefer to spend my time with my boyfriend, most of all that he decided to buy viagra, we enjoy all the time.
