Icecream Cone Cupcake!
 This idea, and not to mention the look at the result made my inner Cupcake heart very happy!
 Not to mention how simple it is!
This is what you need:
Cupcakes (any kind!)
Buttercream (any flavor!) 
Icecream cones
Spatula - if you don't have one, 
use a butterknife with a smooth edge

Frost your Cupcakes with a spatula, make a little swirl
and simply press the cone into the side of the Cupcake
FUN! :)

The process & the result
Guinness Cupcakes
120g unsaltet butter
1 cup Guinness
3/4 cup cocoa powder
2 cups brown sugar
3/4 cups sourcream
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder

 Cut the butter into pieces
 Bring the butter and beer to a melt
 take the saucepan off the heat and stir in the cocoa
 Then add the sugar
 Stir till its a thick yummi butter/beer/chocolate darkness
 in a different bowl, mix the sourcream, eggs and vanilla
 just mix till its combined
 ...and add the mixture to the beermix
 it smells goooood
 Sift in the flour and bakingpowder
 Mix it all
 And get ready to bake for 
25 minutes 
at 350F (180C)
Let cool, and frost!
I used a creamy, tasty 
Carmel Creamcheese whipped frosting.
It smells like beer
I'm thinking, probably because I just made these 
Guinness Cupcakes! 
First step is to melt the beer down with the butter...
smells kindof funky in the beginning, but after a little while it actually smells like a good Sunday 

 The Cupcakes look beautiful

Recipe and more pics later on, gotta go get the second batch out of the oven!
