Foodie Fanatic: 'Cake' Ice Cream Cones

This Recipe was picked by Michele from Makin Cakin Weekends. My mom and I made them for New Years Eve. One thing I liked about this recipe is how the mix doesn't use a lot of oil. Made the cake very light. My phone isn't wanting to upload pictures so I will add on later.

1 box favorite cake mix
1/2 cup cold water
2 eggs
3 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon cooking oil
24 flat-bottomed ice cream cones
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine cake mix and 1/2 cup cold water. Beat 1 minute. Beat in eggs, water, vanilla and oil. Mix well. Place ice cream cones in muffin tins or on cookie sheet and fill each 1/2 full with batter. Bake 15 minutes or until cake springs back to the touch. Frost and decorate when cooled.
