4. In a small bowl, mix some white frosting with a few drops of the pink coloring. Put this pink frosting into the piping bag.
5. Pipe a circle of pink frosting right above the cone so it looks like a scoop of ice cream. At the bottom of the pink circle, right where the cone line meets the pink frosting, pipe about 5 rosette dots in a row. You want it to look like the little rim on the scoop of ice cream when you scoop it out.

You can also change up the frosting flavors to suit your own personal favorites!  You could use different sprinkles, you could omit the cherries, you could sprinkles chopped nuts on the top.  There are hundreds of variations.  The main thing is, when they are all done, just sit back and enjoy!
