I do love an ice cream cone cupcake and have made them a few times now for family celebrations, but I have never made an ice cream cone pinata before.
However, the other week for Jenson’s birthday party, the theme of which was Ice Cream, I decided to try my hand and make some to put inside the party bags.
I have no idea if my way of making ice cream cone pinatas is unique or not, but I was impressed by how they turned out and the birthday boy enjoyed eating his, so a definite success!
If you fancy having a go at making them yourself, they are very easy to make, not too fiddly, and only require a few ingredients. I used mini, mini eggs (and skittles for Jenson’s cousin who cannot eat dairy, aswell as dairy free chocolate in place of normal chocolate in the recipe) ) inside the cones but obviously you could use any sweets of your choice.
- ice cream cornets
- mini meringues (2 needed per pinata)
- white or milk chocolate - approx 150g needed
- hundreds and thousands sprinkles
- sweets of your choice to fill the pinata with
- melt the chocolate
- dip the top of each cornet into the chocolate
- allow the chocolate to cool for about 1 minute
- dip into some sprinkles and cover the rim of the cornet
- leave to stand - I use a wire rack
- sandwich the meringues together with some of the melted chocolate
- fill the cornets with the sweets
- stick the meringue sandwiches onto the top of the cornets, to cover the sweets, with some mroe of the melted chocolate
- leave to set and then as soon as you are able carefully place into a tin or wrap in foil to keep them crisp until you need them
These are such fun to make and I think they look reallly good fun too. Perfect for parties I think kids of all ages would enjoy having one to eat and discover what is hidden inside.
