Cone Pops




Introduction: Cone Pops

As an area governor for Toastmasters, my husband was in charge of a speech contest a couple months ago which involved gathering judges, finding contestants, miscellaneous Toastmastery stuff, and ensuring there was food and beverage since the doors opened at 5:30 PM.  I only helped with the food stuff, and when events like this arise, I like to try something new.

I made cone pops!

Not sure if they're called cone pops, but they're cake pops in an ice cream cone.

Very small ice cream cones...

I made up a standard batch of cake pop base and marshmallow fondant.  Assembly was a little tricky with shaping the fondant especially since this was the first time I'd ever worked with it.  It wasn't as bad as I'd been told, and it tasted fine to me - it was just sweet dough.  I think I made roughly 30 of them and had some fondant leftover.

They went over well with the crowd although people were very confused.  My husband reported that he saw a bunch of adult professionals turn into 5 year old kids after seeing them.  Honestly, who wouldn't smile at such a cute little thing?  Some people thought they were so cute that they didn't eat one and instead took it back to show their kids.  So yay!  The hard work paid off.

    I found them at the grocery store.  Target and Wal-Mart appear to sell them as well.  The brand I used was Joy (Joy Mini Cups).

    What is 'cake pop base'? Should there be a recipe for it? Is it something you buy? These look so incredible - I want to make them.

    Cake Pop Base is something you make, but it's basically a crumbled cake mixed with frosting which ends up having the consistency of very sweet dough.  For these, I made a box of Betty Crocker Funfetti (wouldn't recommend because it looks a little funny and not what I'd hoped) and used a tub of white vanilla frosting.  Easy-peasy.  You can make it any flavor/color you want.

    These sound so delicious! I would love to have 1 (or 10) of these to eat! And that marshmallow fondant looks just amazing!
