What’s better than a cupcake on your birthday? How about a cupcake baked in an ice cream cone and decked with your favourite frosting and sprinkles? Treat yourself – or better yet, enlist a loved one to make them for you. After all, it’s your birthday, and you deserve a break!
Tip: Baking messes have met their match with Bounty and Cascade. Keep a roll of Bounty paper towels handy during mixing batter – just in case of spills – and toss bowls and spoons in the dishwasher with a Cascade Platinum ActionPac for sparkling-clean dishes, no pre-rinse required.
