ICE CREAM CONE CUPCAKES

This incredible ice cream cone cupcake recipe is by one of our favourite Bake Off contestants ever, Martha Collisson. We love it because it combines quite possibly our greatest loves, ice cream and chocolate. I reckon it’d be pretty great at winning you some new friends and getting stroppy housemates on your side, although our advice is to be strategic about your baked goods bribes so you don’t lessen their value.
