Another good idea for kids they love to decorate and create stuff!!! But first, you need to make the Ice Cream Cones. Then let the kids decorate the cones with plain or colored icing with all sorts of decorations. Ex: I am making an underwater theme "Nemo" cones for a one-old birthday girl.. using blue icing for water, teddygram for surfer, flattened gumdrop for surfboard and sliced up gummi worms for seaweed, colored sugar for coral and fondant to make Nemo fish etc....

Here's how you make the cones

One box of cake mix-any flavor.

Follow directions to make the batter. set aside.

get a box of cones (not sugared) or how many you need.

foil

muffin pan

Take the cones one by one and wrap the foil in a scrunched ring wrapped around the cone to fill the space in the muffin pan individually. This gives support to the cones while baking.

Fill the cones after being placed in the muffin pan with batter about 1/2 to 3/4 full.

Bake for about 8-10 mins till cake comes to the rim of the cone.

Cool and let the kids decorate!! You can do decorate with anything and kids love the idea looking like an ice cream cone and eating it!! No mess, no fuss and no clean up after eating them!!
