Nonstick cooking spray, for spraying the cones

1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed

1 large egg, lightly beaten


1 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup confectioners' sugar


1 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar, plus more for dusting

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted

3 tablespoons milk

Pinch fine salt

16 candy eyes


Special equipment:
8 metal cream horn cones or sugar ice cream cones wrapped in foil, a pastry brush and 2 pastry bags
  1. For the horns: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Spray 8 metal cream horn cones or sugar cones wrapped in foil with nonstick cooking spray. Cut the puff pastry into 8 even strips. Starting at the point of each cone, wind a pastry strip around the cone, overlapping the layers slightly to cover the cone with a spiral of pastry. Lightly brush the pastry with the egg wash and place the cones seam-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Cool the pastry on the cones, then remove.
  3. For the filling: Whip the cream and confectioners' sugar with an electric mixer in a medium bowl until stiff peaks form. Transfer to a pastry bag and refrigerate until ready to use. 
  4. For the icing: Combine the confectioners' sugar, butter, milk and salt in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Transfer to a second pastry bag. 
  5. To assemble: Pipe the whipped cream into each horn to fill. Dust with confectioners' sugar to coat. Dab some icing on the back of each eye and affix 2 eyes to each horn. Pipe the icing back and forth over each horn to resemble a mummy.
