  1. Hi!

    A few questions:

    1) When using a glass to form cones, will it come out easily without breaking its shape?

    2) How long will it take for them to set, approximately?

    Thank you!

    • They do come out, my mom uses a plastic cone glass I just didn’t have one. You can easily fix the shape if it doesn’t work well in a glass. I use to the glass for all the cones to be the same size.

    • They set pretty fast if you put them in the fridge. I waited an hour before I serve them, my kids eat them right away. Cover them so they don’t harden to much the next day.
