  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan 160°C, gas mark 4). Carefully wrap the outer side of each ice cream cone in foil and stand in the dips of a muffin tin.

  2. Step 2:

    Cream together the sugar and the butter until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time and beat well.  Fold in the flour and vanilla extract until mixed well.

  3. Step 3:

    Place a large spoonful into each cone, do not fill to the top. Bake for 20 minutes or until the cakes are golden and bounce back when pressed. Leave to cool and remove foil.

  4. Step 4:

    Meanwhile, make the buttercream topping by mixing the icing sugar, butter and vanilla extract together until smooth.

  5. Step 5:

    Spoon the buttercream into a piping bag and swirl over the cakes.  Add sprinkles, a flake and enjoy!
