I remember as a kid the cup cake in the ice cream cone!! Kids would bring them into school on their birthdays.
I still love those!

I imagine it's a lot neater than dealing with a cupcake wrapper when you finally get to eat it!

I'm still waiting for the Chocolate Pudding Cake to come back. Our whole family loved it & really miss it. It was so yummie. This new generation hasn't had a chance to even try it.
