Quick, Easy, Gluten Free and Egg-less Rainbow Cupcake Cones

This Quick, Easy, Gluten Free and Egg-less Rainbow Cupcake Cones recipe was requested by my Instagram followers. I actually came across this recipe while my daughter was browsing Youtube videos. She likes to watch recipes that are unusual. She showed the recipe to me and insisted on making it. Of course, it was full of allergens that my children cannot consume. So I adopted the recipe to make it allergy friendly. The recipe is basically similar to how you would make a cupcake but instead of putting the batter in cupcake liners you put them in ice cream cones and bake. Here I used gluten free ice cream cones, which are usually available in the organic section of the grocery store, if you are in North America.

I will let you in on a secret, I am not a very good baker. The things I bake mostly turn out a disaster, especially if I am adapting the recipe to suit our dietary needs and even more if they are deserts. So I stir clear of baking mostly. I also tend to use baking mixes, simply because they are quick, easy and mostly disaster proof. So here I have used a baking mix, which makes this recipe a breeze to make. However, the main part of this recipe is not the cake ingredients but how the batter is used to make it into a cupcake cone. So you can use your own recipe or any white/golden cake mix. For some reason we only use four colors and that gives us enough batter for each color to make 10 cones. If you use more than four colors you might need more cake batter to make 10 cones.
