Step 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. Set aside.
Step 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.
