Nothing says summer like a snow-cone, but they can be messy and melt quickly. Food Network Magazine has baked up a great idea that gives you snow-cones without the stickiness — snow-cone cupcakes. Faux-cones.

 Snow-Cone Cupcakes

To make them, sprinkle red, yellow and blue sanding sugar on frosted cupcakes. For the full snow-cone effect, place the cupcakes in Styrofoam cups, and top with wooden spoons or straws. Check out more great ideas from Food Network Magazine to help host your next summer party.
