Maybe they're purely pretty but really, sometimes thats all you need.. I love ice cream (didn'tchaknow?!) and I have strong views about it being in cones. (Basically, if you go to an ice cream shop, and you're a regular person who can eat cones, then you're a loser if you get it in a cup. You can't eat your cup.)
All the details on how to make these cuties are on the blog: Icing Designs.
