Ice Cream Lollicakes!!!

In light of the gloomy, rainy, cold, icky weather, I decided it would be a PERFECT day to make some super cute ice cream Lollicakes!!! (run-on sentence, sorry!)

I followed the same steps in my previous Valentines blog EXCEPT I shaped the cones by hand instead of using a cookie cutter.  I tried my best to make them around the same size and they're not perfect, but the melted candy coating that will cover up the imperfections!  I also made balls separately for the top of the cone ...dip them the same way as before...

And don't forget, you can use different colored candy melts to mimic the different flavors of ice cream!  and you can add sprinkles to spice it up!!

..a side note.. I learned that when you have excess cake shavings that you would like to re-use/reshape, put it in the microwave for 30 seconds so they're warm, it'll help all the little pieces stick together nicely.  I learned this because my last batch of balls started to crack when I  inserted the stick or they would fall apart in the melted candy cup.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM!
