Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

Did you know that you can bake cupcakes in ice cream cones?

Well you can!  And it is actually pretty easy.

All you have to do is mix up a batch of your favorite cake mix.  Put the ice cream cones in a cupcake tin.  I used a mini cupcake tin so there was less room for them to slide around.  You have to be careful not to tip the cones while you are moving them around.

Fill the cones 1/2 to 2/3 full of batter and bake.  Then you can just decorate as normal.  It's pretty much just like baking normal cupcakes just using a ice cream cone instead of a cupcake liner.

Star Trek Baby Mobile

What better way to start your baby off right in the world than with a nerdy crib mobile?

And what could be better than a Star Trek themed one!

All of the pieces are made from felt and hand sewn by me.  Can you guess what each ship is supposed to be?

The first one is the Enterprise, the second is a Klingon ship, and the third is a Romulan ship.  There is also a Borg ship that you can see in the full photo.

And if you're interested in getting your hands on one of these, head on over to my Etsy shop!
