Monday was my son’s birthday he turned 11 and brought some awesome luck to the Chicago Blackhawks that night because they won the Stanley Cup for the third time in six years and won it at home for the first time since 1938. (It’s perfectly okay for me to believe he gave the his birthday luck for the win!) Today is the parade and the city is a madhouse! Hordes of people are lining the parade route and my 22-year-old is one of them. I would be too but with crowds that size I can’t bring my three youngest. I fear someone would get lost. SO since they were sad about missing the parade (My daughter wanted to yell “Oh captain, my captain!” to Jonathan Toews.) I made them some celebratory Stanley Cup Ice Cream Cones to eat while watching the parade on TV.
These are super easy to make but you will need some time for them to dry so make sure you have plenty of time.
To make your own Stanley Cup Ice Cream Cones complete with fondant pucks you will need:
Wilton Color Mist in silver
Chocolate Melts or Cubes
Disposable Pastry Bag
Small Package of Black Fondant (Walmart carries small Wilton packages in their craft aisle.)
Ice Cream, Yogurt or Custard of your choice
To start making your cone you will need two cake cones. Cut the top large section and part of the bottom off of one of the cones using a sharp pairing knife. The easiest way to do this is not just to cut straight through but cut and rotate the cone so that it only cuts the current section as you turn it. It comes out more even that way.
Next, you will spray the pieces with the Wilton Color Mist in silver. You can do each piece alone or fit them together and then spray them to use less spray. Let the pieces dry completely before handling.
Melt a small amount of white chocolate in the microwave according to package instructions in the disposable pastry bag. Once melted snip the tip off of the pastry bag and squeeze some of it into the smaller end on the halved cone.
While the chocolate is still melted fit it onto the upside down full cone. This will be the “”glue” that holds the pieces together and prevents ice cream melting everywhere.
While the chocolate is setting you will need to work the black fondant to soften it up. Once you have it to a workable state roll and flatten it with your hand. Then using a small fondant cutter, or the large end of a pastry tip cut out your “pucks”.
Now you can scoop up your favorite frozen treat into the Stanley Cup Cones and top with the fondant pucks and they are ready to be enjoyed. While not quite the real thing it does taste much better!
Congratulations Chicago Blackhawks on an awesome season!
