I found time ago metallic cones for cooking purpose. That's great, like that I could do the famous swiss pastry horn that can be found there often at the bakeries and patisseries. I remember being little, calling it always "Unicorn Horn", and for years and years, it's been always "Unicorn Horn" for me, so don't ask me about the original name, I don't recall... XD
There are easy to made, but you need to be patient. It's just done out of puffpastry and patisserie cream, so I'll make the recipe for that.


    0.5l milk
    3 egg yolks
    100gr sugar
    40 gr flour
    25 gr maizena
    3 spoons milk
    1 package of puff pastry (to roll around the metallic cone)


Pour in pan the flour, maizena, sugar, yolks and mix thorougly together. When there's mixture, start heating on low level the pan. Heat the rest of the milk (so that it is warm but not to the boiling point). Add it to the mixture, and mix and whirl and turn and twist and on and on. Continue to do so, without stopping (to avoid crumbs on the cream, or to avoid that it burns and sticks to the pan, if you don't have a high quality pan). Eventually highen a bit up the heat, but not too much. It has to boil. When it starts boiling, remove the pan and add 3 spoons of milk. Mix everything, put it again over the heat and make it boil a second time. Then let it cool in the fridge for 1-2hours.

Believe me, they really are, even only the cream eaten by itself or with fruits is soooo yum yum! Cheesy

I really love this idea. They remind me so much of the kind of pastries I used to get in Germany.
