Allergyfriendly Rainbow Cupcake Cones

These Allergyfriendly Rainbow Cupcake Cones with cake mix are easy to make and are gluten free, dairy free, and egg free. 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. So I adapted 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 desserts. So I stir clear of baking mostly. I also tend to use baking mixes, simply because they are quick, easy and mostly disaster proof.

For these Allergyfriendly Rainbow Cupcake Cones, I have used a gluten free baking mix, which makes this recipe a breeze to make. So you can use your own recipe or any white/golden cake mix.

Batter Colour for Allergyfriendly Rainbow Cupcake Cones

To colour the cupcakes I only use four food 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.
