Ice cream cupcakes

These are just too cute. They look like real ice cream cones but in my opinion these are much better. I do like ice cream though I don't eat it often. I much prefer cupcakes!

You need to buy the ice cream cups rather than cones so be careful which pack you pick up in the supermarket! You could make any flavour cake recipe and I put a twist in mine by scooping out some of the centre and filling with raspberry jam. And don't forget the flakes!

125g caster sugar
125g butter/margarine 
125g self raising flour
2 eggs
3 tbsp jam
6 flakes cut in half (from the packs you get for ice cream if not then 3 normal flakes 

Preheat the oven to 190/170 fan and fill a muffin tin with ice cream cups so they stand up. Cream the butter and sugar together. Mix in the eggs and flour and fill each of the cones about 2/3rds full.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until a cake tester comes out clean. Prick the bottoms with a skewer a few times to let some of the steam out to avoid the cup going soggy inside and leave to cool on a wire rack. 

Remove some of the centre of each cup and fill with raspberry jam. 

had some buttercream left over already but a quantity of 250g butter and 500g icing sugar will be more than enough. Pipe with a star nozzle in swirls onto each cone and top with a flake and sprinkles
