Ice Cream Cone Basics:
Ice cream cones are a beloved treat that consists of a cone-shaped, edible pastry, usually made from a mixture of flour, sugar, eggs and butter. The cone is filled with scoops of delicious ice cream and enjoyed as a dessert or snack.
The waffle cone is said to have been invented at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, Missouri, when an ice cream vendor ran out of cups and started using the waffles from a nearby stall to hold the ice cream.
The ice cream cone is not just any waffle.
Ice cream cones are popular at fairs and carnivals and are a symbol of summer and fun.
It has a specific shape, with a pointed bottom that tapers up into a cone shape.
The cone is also designed to be hygienic, and environmentally friendly as it prevents your hands from touching the ice cream, while also providing a crunchy texture that contrasts with the creamy ice cream, making it a satisfying and delicious treat.
