If you can't find mini cupcake cones, you can use regular ice cream cones and standard-size muffin pans instead. Prepare recipe as directed, using 24 ice cream cones and increasing the baking time to 18 to 21 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers of cupcakes comes out clean.
How to Test Cake for Doneness
To prevent overbaking, check cakes or cupcakes at the minimum baking time indicated in recipe. Insert a toothpick in center of cake. If it comes out clean, the cake is done. If it does not come out clean, return to the oven for a few additional minutes before rechecking.
