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!

It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

Oh dear lord, I couldn’t agree more! I do this too, except I use Nutella!!


What a darling idea! Icing, ice cream, sprinkles, chocolate sauce & a cone? *heaven*

Heather@ Sweet Sins

I love the bday cone! I think this is a great idea!!!


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!

I’m on board. Just don’t leave without me. Yummy!


This is FANTASTIC!! I definitely need to make me one! Thanks for making me laugh, too 🙂
FYI, I gave you an award today on my blog 🙂

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.


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 =)

what a yummy looking cone that is 🙂


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? 🙂


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!

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.


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!


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.


–also, the chocolate at the bottom of the cone is CLEARLY the best part.


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!

Have you tried a Skors Drumstick. It has caramel in the bottom! Much better than a regular old drumstick!

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen

You are a genius! Frosting really should be it’s own food group, it’s goes well with everything. And I totally agree with you on everything, especially that the chocolate at the bottom of the cone is the best part, I mean who doesn’t know that?

I love this!

Cookie Sleuth

It depends on the day what my favorite is! Right now I want something crunchy… 🙂

Jessica Martin

My favorite pop tarts are the brown sugar and cinnamon! Feel free to check out my blog!:)


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!

Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray

These are adorable!! (By the way. You’re totally right about the chocolate at the bottom of the cone. Psh. It is essential to ice cream enjoyment! …but I still think tennis balls are green. Sorry. :P)

As someone who is not very good at baking, this is a dessert I can totally get behind!
