Happy Daisies🌼

When picking up flowers to have on various tables at my twins graduation party, I decided to get a variety of a few different blooms. Their party was three weeks ago and I JUST had to retire these happy, pretty daisies this morning! They were the least expensive yet brought joy for much longer than any other flower!

Ice Cream Cone Cakes!

Last week, I wanted to be a “fun Mom” who sent something “different” in for the end of season Lacrosse party.  I had completely forgotten about ice cream cone cakes!!  I fell in love with these all over again!cups

Ingredients

Cake mix – any flavor  {We like Funfetti}

Flat bottom ice cream cones {Joy sells colored cones}

2 tubs of whipped frosting – any color/flavor

Sprinkles or other decorations

Directions

Prepare cake batter as directed. While Betty Crocker recommends pouring the batter into cupcake papers and then placing cones upside down on top of the batter, I prefer filling the actual cone – not all the way to the top or the batter will spill over (I learned that the hard way!).  Then, your finished cone will look like this (instead of half empty): Ice-Cream-Cone-Cupcake

Bake at 350 for 18-22 minutes.

Transporting the cone cakes is quite an adventure.  I decided on the egg carton, but here are a few other ideas as well:IMG_1464

I LOVE the next two photos and I plan on using cups the next time (but filling candy a little higher for my security!):
