1 cup 250 mL Carnation® Regular, 2% or Fat Free Evaporated Milk
2 tbsp 30 mL vinegar, divided
1 ½ cups 375 mL granulated sugar
½ cup 125 mL Crisco® Vegetable or Canola Oil
2 eggs
1 tbsp 15 mL red food colouring
1 tsp 5 mL vanilla extract
2 ½ cups 625 mL Robin Hood® Best for Cake & Pastry Flour, sifted
2 tbsp 30 mL cocoa powder, sifted
1 tsp 5 mL baking powder
½ tsp 2 mL salt
1 tsp 5 mL baking soda
22-24 4.5 g each flat bottomed ice cream cones


8 oz 250 g cream cheese, softened
½ cup 125 mL butter, softened
1 tbsp 15 mL vanilla extract
4 cups 1 L Icing Sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Cupcake: Combine evaporated milk with 1 tbsp (15 mL) vinegar. Set aside.
  3. Beat, in a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, sugar, oil and eggs until well combined. Add food colouring and vanilla. Beat well.
  4. Combine next 4 ingredients in a separate large bowl. Beat in half of dry mixture to the wet mixture. Beat in reserved evaporated milk mixture and then remaining dry mixture.
  5. Tip

    For smooth batter with no lumps, place a strainer or flour sifter on top of a large bowl and have your kids sift the flour and the cocoa.

  6. Combine remaining vinegar (1 tbsp/15 mL) and baking soda in a small bowl. Allow mixture to fizz. Fold into batter.
  7. Tip

    Do your kids know what happens when vinegar and baking soda mix together? Get them to watch and see for themselves!

  8. Place ¼ cup (50 mL) batter into each cone. Place cones into muffin cups and bake in preheated oven, 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool, 30 minutes.
  9. Icing: Beat cream cheese and butter until well combined, in a medium bowl. Add vanilla and icing sugar and beat until smooth and creamy. Ice each cone and decorate.
  10. Tip

    Set up a decoration station and let your kids add an extra touch to their cones with sprinkles and their other favourite toppings.
