I think everyone knows my inspiration here. Oh man. So satisfying.
I baked the vanilla cupcakes right in the cones. They took an extra two minutes to bake, but other than that it was easy. I piped on vanilla vegan buttercream to resemble softserve, then hand-dipped them in some melted chocolate and let them sit in the freezer for a moment to cure.
The result? Stewart complains that I tricked him. They look so much like ice cream, but are most definitely not, making them a most confusing confection. I think the dark chocolate and the sweet frosting nearly recreates the real thing – who cares if they’re hard to eat when they’re so fun to look at!
