Enjoy A Cone

So, apparently there is a market for these....

Who knew? On Friday I was doing some ebay "research" to find out more about these....
That is when I discovered the market for the ice cream cone dispenser. I did a search for "ice cream cone holder" thinking that might be what these cones are. Well, up popped a couple of the dispensers with pretty good bids going. It certainly caught my attention because I am the proud owner of one. I was garage saling several weeks ago and not having much luck. Thinking I needed to buy something I decided this was a unique find. And for $1 it satisfied my "need."


I thought it might make a cute candy dish, flower planter, craft organizer....I'd think of something. It was unique and I liked it. Well, I don't like it that much. You see, the two auctions ended yesterday. One for $71 and the other for $58! Can you believe that?! So, mine is listed here. It's up to $6.50 already which means I've already made a profit. Love it!


Back to those little cone things. Does anyone know what they are? They are marked "NUTBROWN made in England." I found some other Nutbrown items on ebay - baking and utensils - but I didn't come across anything like them. I'm just curious. I don't think I will sell them. I can see them in some sort of stand holding flowers, buttons, etc. But then again....we'll just have to wait and see!

Those metal things are for making cream horns. You roll out a circle of pastry dough and then wrap it around the metal cone. Lay it on a baking sheet and bake it. After it cools, slide the pastry cone off the metal form. Then you can fill it with whipped cream, icing, pudding, ice cream or anything yummy. I have a set in the original box that I haven't used but they intrigue me!

Yes, I have a set of these cones, too. And as Shara said, you bake cream horns with them. (though I haven't madea these in years!)
