It's Groundhog Day and these sweet cone cakes are sure to delight kids of all ages. Will Punxsutawney Phil see his shadow? I'm hoping it's a cloudy day and he doesn't cast a shadow, signaling that Spring is right around the corner! Either way, here's a super cute way to celebrate the day.
Using any chocolate cake mix (we used Devil's Food boxed mix), place green cones into our green patent pending bases and fill about 2/3 of the way up (see instructions here). Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes.
While the cone cakes are baking, clean off (or eat, we won't judge!) the creamy white middles of a few Oreo cookies. Place into a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin.
Add green food coloring to frosting until the color resembles that of grass.
Once the cone cakes have fully cooled on a cooling rack (this is an important step: allowing the heat to escape from under the bases prevents cones from becoming soggy,) use a grass piping tip and pastry bag to pipe grass onto the cone cake.
With a small spoon, sprinkle about a teaspoon of crushed Oreos on top of the cone cake and push in a Teddy Graham. Voila! You've got an adorable Groundhog Cone Cake!
