Inhale the scents drifting down memory lane. What do they smell like? Warm cake? Sweet frosting? Crunchy waffle cones?
As I was thinking about making push up cake pops
, a memory came to my mind. One of me sitting in a classroom at a desk, peeling the top off of an ice cream cone to get at the cupcake inside. I remember the birthday boy or girl (with help from their parent) passing out these masterpieces of confection. To me, birthday days were the best days. It meant less class time, more delicious treats. Like homemade ice cream cone cupcakes.
I haven’t had one since probably the seventh grade. I asked my 12 year old sister if anyone brings them to class for their birthdays. She said no. Which is kind of sad. I guess they’re just not as popular anymore. They were super popular when I was in elementary and middle school. I pretty much forgot all about them because high school wasn’t really the place for ice cream cone cupcakes with sprinkles on top. But remembering them gives me a good dose of childhood nostalgia.
It’s nice to have a happy memory connected to a special kind of day, like a birthday, in your childhood. I made a little gallery of ice cream cone cupcakes to drool over if you want to nostalgia with me.
Do you have any childhood memories of food at school?
