Well, this must be the biggest baking disaster of my baking career. Or should I say, Baking Hobby. Geez. The picture explains all. My advice? Don't buy the cheap cones because I think what happened (or part of what happened) was that the batter soaked right through the cones before they had a chance to bake. And I guess I overfilled a little? But instead of puffing over the top nicely like it was supposed to, it poured over the sides. Broken cone edges (even small pieces) apparently don't help either.

What a mess.

Ooooh... Yeah, something as kooky as cupcakes-in-a-cone probably could have used a practice run or two, before doing them for real. Where's the time for that, though? Have a plan B at this point?

You are completely right about the practice run- and also right about the time thing. I had enough batter for 15 REGULAR cupcakes, but then it was after 11 p.m. and didn't want to start more. Guess what's on tonight's agenda?
