Pineapple Upside Down Cupcake Cone
Hello faithful readers!
This is my entry in the 2010 Ice Cream Cupcake Roundup, sponsored by Cupcake Project and Scoopalicious. I’m vying to win an awesome Cuisinart ICE-30BC Pure Indulgence 2-Quart Automatic Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet, and Ice Cream Maker and an incredible prize pack from OXO including OXO Good Grips Solid Stainless Steel Ice Cream Scoop, Oxo Good Grips 2-Cup Angled Measuring Cup, OXO Good Grips 1169600 3-Piece Mixing Bowl Set, Blue/Green/Yellow, Oxo Good Grips Bent Icing Knife, and Oxo Good Grips PRO Grater.
Wish me luck! (I’ll let you know when the public voting begins.)
My inspiration was my ice cream cone-shaped cupcake pan that I got at Crate and Barrel. I wanted to bake some “cone” cupcakes and fill them with ice cream. But if you know me, you know that I have to be a little more flashy than that. So then I decided to turn the cone upside down and call my creation a Pineapple Upside Down Cupcake Cone!
The cupcake is a basic yellow cake, buttery and moist, dressed up with a little rum to complement the pineapple sorbet. YUMMY!
So, what do you think? Can I win this contest?
