Cozy Cones, Cakes & Cars

I showed you the tractor cakes I made for Miss M's birthday this year in this previous post. We didn't have a big party for her this year, but the other treat I made were Cozy Cones from the movie Cars

(mini ice cream cones filled with mini marshmallows & 'capped' with a mini Oreo)

I purchased some colour powder from Highland Homewares and got stuck in to some mini ice cream cones with a soft brush. Those were the three at the back (and many more in a container ready to go) I also tried with some liquid food colouring (front left), and watered down food colouring (front right). I was concerned that the liquid would turn the cones to mush, and the watered down version did a little.

On her special day, Miss M got a cake sandwich, topped with some butter & sprinkles to mark the occasion.

The Lunch Punch I used is available from Affiliate Nea2Eat

I cheated for her cake though & bought it from Woolworths - I'm not that good :-)  It did get a little squished hiding in the cupboard but she didn't mind.

  1. How was the cake? Thinking of buying one for my son 's birthday next Saturday. Thanks!

    1. To be honest Mari I found the cake a bit sickly sweet with too much icing - but Miss M loved it. I'm sure simply because it was Lightning McQueen :-) I wouldn't be spending the money again if it wasn't for a specially requested character.
      My other option was to make a ring cake and buy some miniature toys to put on top. I just ran out of time to pull it off. Hope that helps :-)

    2. Thanks a lot! Have to think about the plan B, maybe I could do something by myself...It has to be Lightning McQueen though! :P


Loving your comments, Thank you <3
