Birthday Cone

On any given day there is a debate going on in my house.

Here are some of the latest…

1) Best Pop Tart Flavor…

2) Are chickens dinosaurs?

3)  Best Journey song…

4) Can you really tell the difference between 2% and Whole Milk?

5) Are tennis balls yellow or green?

6) Cup O’ Noodles vs. Chef Boyardee

7) Would you run and hide or unite and conquer when zombies take over the land?

I am sure you are sincerely concerned with my answers on these most difficult and important life questions…

Geez, stop begging already!

1) Brown Sugar Cinnamon, 2) No, 3) Separate Ways, 4) No, 5) Yellow, 6) Cup O’ Noodles, 7)  run and hide (duh)

You might have a difference of opinion, but I’m just gonna tell you that you are wrong.

My answers are clearly the most accurate, based on years of research.

Our most recent disagreement has lead me to today’s post.

You all know what Drumsticks are, right?  They are a delicious pre-packaged ice cream cone that come in lots of flavors.

Here’s where the disagreement begins…

What is the best part of the Drumstick?

One of my son’s says, “The ice cream”

Wrong answer.

My husband says, “The nuts on top”

Wronger answer.

I now begin wondering who it is I live with and what alien has invaded their body.

Clearly, the correct answer is the chocolate at the bottom of the cone.  There is no other answer!

So, in that vein I decided to one-up the Drumstick.

How you say?

With frosting.  Get on board people.

Delicious buttercream frosting at the bottom of your favorite ice cream cone just seems like an idea that should have been invented long ago.

I deem it the birthday cone…but you know as well as I do that there needn’t be a birthday to enjoy frosting.  It’s one of my golden rules.

Let’s begin….

Here’s what you’ll need:

Ice Cream, Frosting, Sprinkles, an ice cream cone and Chocolate syrup..if you’re feeling messy!

Now take a generous tablespoon of frosting and push it into the bottom of the cone.

Now fill the cone with your favorite ice cream.

Top with syrup and sprinkles and you’re done!

There are so many variation on this the possibilities are endless!

Have a great weekend!

    Dipping it in Magic Shell instead of Hershey’s would also be tasty, and now they have a cupcake flavor of Magic Shell!

    You are so right…the chocolate in the cone and the cone itself with said chocolate are the best part. In our house we have arguments over what they’re actually called. My husband calls them nutty buddies, I call them drumsticks or sundae cones.
    I agree with the pop tarts and cup o’ noodles too, and Best Journey song..yep, Separate Ways..great song! Although Don’t Stop Believin’ is real close. My daughter had the orchestra version play for the processional at her wedding a couple weeks ago. ?
    ….but the zombie thing I have to disagree with ya on that one…I gots a chainsaw, I ain’t scared! bwahaha . 😉
    Have a great weekend!
    BTW…lovin’ the new blog/site! Looks marvelous!

  3. I love this Shelly! If I make these I’ll have to add the candle, even though it’s no one’s birthday. It just seems like the right thing to do. 🙂

  4. Right away I thought chocolate….now I see how wrong I am. Frosting is genius and I never thought of chickens and dinosaurs but now I might.

  5. Besides great taste and texture, frosting works perfectly in preventing drips from the bottom of the cone. Can’t wait to try it!
    Thanks for answering all those pressing questions, Shelly:)

  6. well . . . i beg to differ but THE CONE is the best part of a drumstick . . . BUT i must also concede that i’m rather ‘meh’ about chocolate except on occasion . . . yes, i am weird . . . but you already knew that, right???

  7. I am right there with you…the chocolate in the bottom is the BEST part! How about melted chocolate on top and underneath the frosting??? Best of both world and sure to keep the zombies away:-)

  8. Totally the chocolate at the end of the cone. It actually works quite well around here because I eat the chocolate coating, my husband eats the ice cream, then I get the last half ot the cone with the chocolate in it!

  9. How very appropriate. It’s my birthday 🙂

    I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve been so busy doing my own blog that I haven’t stopped by in a while! You changed your design!! It looks awesome 🙂

    Thanks for always posting the BEST stuff!

  10. this little cone is something that anyone can do! That is awesome…in other news, I like brown sugar cinnamon too, but would challenge your journey selection.

  11. What a great post and the answer to so many of life’s questions…but I’m with your hubby…I like the nuts on the top… However, I like your version better than the store bought!

    Girl! That is the best idea since, like… well, since the Reese’s Stuffed Crescent Rolls! It’s the perfect reason to save just a little of that buttercream. Word.

  13. You are SO right. Obvi. I always lived for that chocolate…except it was usually all melty when I got to the end! You could have so much fun with the buttercream, playing with flavor combos!

    I love this idea! I agree with a commenter about using Magic Shell around the cone, but … what about putting magic shell on TOP OF the frosting! Then ice cream, more magic shell and sprinkles? 🙂

  15. You made me LOL, THRICE! Terrible joke, only Golden Girls watchers get that joke. You should email my hubby and tell him its almost my birthday and things like this really win wife points =)

  16. I forgot to comment on this on Friday but it was so perfect that you posted this idea the day you did! 🙂 My little brothers birthday! He was on a birthday vacay but it will be fun to do this for him when he gets back.

  17. AMEN SISTER! BTW, I’ve been lurking around here for months and love the look of your new design. However, I’m uber-lazy and like to just scroll down & see your whole posts rather than having to exert all that extra energy & click on each older post… That being said, YOU ARE HILARIOUS and get funnier by the minute! I love this post – and you’re so right about the chocolate in the Drumstick. The frosting inside is an even better idea. GENIUS!
