Last week Junior Chefs at our cooking classes baked Strawberry Cupcake Cones! The combination of fresh strawberries and a good quality strawberry yogurt mixed into the dough and then baked into cupcake cones, and dipped into good quality chocolate makes this delightful dessert an all around hit with the kids. It’s fun for parties or play dates and sleepovers and super easy for you and the kids too!
