  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F (325 degrees F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.
  2. Make cake batter as directed on box.
  3. Fill each cup 2/3 full of batter (1 heaping tablespoon each). Place ice cream cone upside down on batter in each cup.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in cake comes out clean (cones may tilt on batter).
  5. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  6. Remove paper baking cups.
  7. Generously frost cake with frosting, and decorate as desired.
  8. Store loosely covered.

High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Follow High Altitude directions on cake mix box. Fill cones about 1/2 full to make 36 to 40 cones. Bake 20 to 25 minutes.

After frosting, enjoy a downpour! Sprinkle frosted cone cakes with any of the following: breakfast cereal, animal crackers, dried fruit, candy sprinkles, crushed hard candies, Graham cracker crumbs, granola, mini chocolate chips or chopped nuts.

Vary the flavor of your cake cones by using other varieties of Betty Crocker® cake mix. You could also try different flavors of flat-bottom cones.
