Opening Ceremony Fun

Today for my daughter's class I made Olympic torch cupcakes and it was so easy and they were such a hit that I thought I would share. I saw a picture of this on Pinterest last week and I knew it would be perfect. Use any cake recipe or mix you want. I used a simple vanilla cake. You will also need regular kids shape ice cream cones your favorite frosting recipe, food colouring, a piping bag with an open star tip and some deep loaf pans. You bake these straight in the cone!
Make the cake batter, put the cones in the loaf pans and then fill them about 2/3 full. They take a bit longer to bake so keep checking them with a long cake tester.
The icing I used was just butter and icing sugar and vanilla. I then made 3 different shades of orange and yellow. I ran a bead of red gel food coloring down one side of the bag and dark orange down the other side. Then put all 3 colours of icing in the piping bag together.
When you do the icing you just pipe straight up.
And Ta Daaa Olympic Torches.
