Ok, so it’s Pride Month guys. And, besides it being the month where my favorite parades take place, it’s also a month where the LGBTQ community celebrates the freedom to be themselves. And as a mother of two little humans, I don’t miss an opportunity to Celebrate. Literally. Everything. Plus, how cute does she look in that outfit, I mean come on.
So we generally get dressed up from head to toe and go to the Pride Parade in West Hollywood, however, this year we unfortunately missed it. So what did we do? Rainbow “ice cream” cones.
Ok so here’s what you’re going to need:
- Ice cream cones (any size or shape works)
- Boxed Cake (Already baked–any flavor)
- Icing (any flavor)–Get two icing jugs per boxed cake
- Wilton Candy Melts (any colors)
- Rainbow sprinkles
- Bag of M&M’s
Alright, let’s get this party started.
Step 1: Crumble
First thing you need to do is grab that baked cake and put it in a bowl. Toss it and start to crumble it. TIP: If you do it really fast, I think you lose like a lot of calories.
Step 2: Mix
Once it’s all crumbled, add the icing. You can use a spoon like a pampered diva, but you’ll get the job done much faster if you just use your hands. Mix it all together.
You’re really going for a doughy-like feel, or your cake is going to taste too dry. But don’t put too much, or the mold will slip off the cone.
Step 3: Refrigerate
Throw it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. It needs to get cold.
Step 4: Stuff ’em
Ok, now grab your ice cream cones and the cake/icing mixture. Scoop that gob of calories out and stuff that ice cream cone like a Turkey on Thanksgiving. And, seriously, use your hands. Fill the bottom of the cone first.
Next, grab more of the mixture and put a half mounted ball on the top. The idea is that you are mimicking the shape of an actual ice cream cone.
Step 5: Melt the good stuff
Put a handful of candy melts in the microwave. Try it in 20-30 second increments and keep stirring in between. You don’t want the chocolate to be watery, just a nice thick paste.
Step 6: Now watch me Dip..
Now take your ice cream cones, and dip them in the chocolate. It’s ok to have a little drip, it actually looks more like melted ice cream. Just be sure to not let it look too sloppy, and let the excess chocolate drip into the bowl before putting it back upright.
**You can pick whatever colors you want for these steps. I chose white as my base.
Step 7: Toppings!
Lastly, to get that real ice cream look, you need to get your “syrup” (Candy Melts), your “cherry” (M&M), and your rainbow sprinkles.
First, melt some fun colors. Then take a spoon and put it on the top of each ice cream cone. Second, add an M&M right in the center. And last, top it off with some rainbow sprinkles. Put that sucker back in the fridge for 5 minutes and they’re ready.
Alright guys, get your fat pants on. Hope you try this out yourself, and it’s not a complete disaster. I have faith in you.
