Ice Cream cupcakes

My sister's sister-in-law made these cakes for her little boy's birthday party and thought they looked fab so sent me the link - here. The video to help with the icing's pretty good too.

My sister's staying with me tonight, so we've had a go and they're ace. I used my own cupcake recipe and cooking times and temperatures and they seemed to come out fine - much to my surprise. Baking in cornets?? I think I need to use slightly less mix in the cornets so they don't rise quite so much, and I also needed to use a bigger piping nozzle so that the whirly topping looks more in proportion to the cornet (and so hopefully the flake stands better in the icing!) but otherwise they taste fantastic!
