Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 170°C fan-forced. Place ice-cream cones into muffin pans.
  2. Place butter and sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer, beating until pale and creamy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well between each addition. Mix in vanilla extract.
  3. Fold in flours and milk alternately until all combined and mixture is smooth. Spoon mixture between ice-cream cones and bake for 18-20 mins until just golden. Remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  4. For the Icing; place butter in a large mixing bowl. Beat with electric beaters until soft and creamy. Gradually add icing mix and water until mix is smooth. Divide mixture in half and add drops of red food colouring to one bowl, mixing until desired colour is reached.
