I’ve been wanting to try this one for a long, long time, ever since I saw them online last year when searching for ideas for my son’s birthday cake. I got the recipe from BBC Good Food (ever reliable!).

I used flat-bottomed ice cream cones, but I have seen other recipes which use pointy-end cones (technical term there)… but they’re a bit trickier to make and I’m all about convenience πŸ™‚

I found the original recipe for this choc chip cake at My Little Italian Kitchen. But the original recipe was for a large circular tin and I wanted to use my loaf tin… so I decided to reduce all the original quantities by a third. As you’ll see below, this means some of my amounts are a bit odd, but it works!

I honestly can’t remember where or when I first saw one of these. But I do remember thinking, “What a great idea!” If you think I might have seen this on your blog, please let me know so I can thank you.

I used my usual, simple sponge cake recipe. The most difficult bit might be finding the appropriately-shaped cake tin πŸ™‚
