I can pretty much be convinced to do anything if ice cream is my reward. (I hear the gears turning in your noggin'... No taking advantage of my weaknesses!)
Well, I had a project recently that required an ice cream cone in modeling chocolate. But it needed to be about 3 inches tall. At the most. But y'all know me, I like detail and playing with my food.
So I thought. And I tried some things. And I threw some modeling chocolate across the kitchen, and started over. A few times. But then it happened!
I FIGURED IT OUT!!!
Watch my tutorial below :) A list of tools/materials is below the video. 'Cause I know you're gonna be adding ice cream cones to everything you do now. The waffle cone is too stinkin' cute to avoid!
