Step 1
Set up your barbecue for indirect cooking. Please refer to your handbook for further instructions. Preheat your barbecue for baking.

Step 2
Prepare the cake mixture according to the packet instructions.

Step 3
Using a 12 cup muffin tray, place an ice cream cone in each cup and ⅔ fill with the cake mixture.

Step 4
Once the barbecue has preheated, make adjustments to the burner control(s) if required. Place the cupcakes in and cook for 20 minutes.

Step 5
Once finished baking, remove the cupcakes from the barbecue and place the cupcakes on a cooling rack. Place the remaining cones in the muffin tray, fill ⅔ full with cake mixture and bake for 20 minutes.

Step 6
While the cupcakes are cooling, make the frosting. Place the icing sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl. Using electric beaters, beat on low for 2 minutes. Continue beating and add the vanilla and 2 tablespoons of the milk. If the frosting is not yet smooth add a little more milk until desired consistency is reached.

Step 7
Fill a piping bag with the frosting and pipe onto the cooled cupcakes.

Have fun decorating the cupcakes with the sprinkles and chocolate.
