HIgh Hat Cupcakes

Amber's birthday festivities are tonight, and I've always wanted to make high hat cupcakes, so she agreed to be my taste tester. I cheated, I made these with buttercream instead of meringue icing.....because I like my cupcakes sweet, and sometimes, I like my cupcakes sweet (are you getting the idea?). The hat isn't as 'high' with buttercream, but I hope the flavor makes up for it! They remind me of a Dairy Queen ice cream cone, yum.
Here they are 'drying' on my impromptu drying rack.

P.s. These were some of my very favorite cupcakes yet. Sure, they aren't as cute as some of them, but chocolate dipped cupcakes=DELICIOUS. I highly recommend it! 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate, and 3 T. of veg. oil melted together, dip, and cool in the fridge for two hours, and you've got yummy goodness, and a few more calories to work off in the gym, but they are well worth it!
