There are mainly three types of ice cream cone, the cake cone, the waffle cone, and the sugar cone.
1. The cake cone. The cake cone also called the molded or flat-bottomed cone. The flat bottom of the cake cone is now an accepted industry standard, but it was not invented until the late 1940s. Before this, cake cones were also cone shaped, but Joseph Shapiro of the Maryland Cup Corporation (later the Ace Baking Company) made the flat base especially for the Diary Queen chain. Filling cone-shaped cones and handing them to customers is a two-handed business, but the flat-bottomed cone stands on its own and can be filled more easily. Cake cones tast crisp.
2. The waffle cone. The waffle cone is characterized by a rough or unfinished top edge. Waffle cones are crunchy and sweet.
3. The sugar cone. The sugar cone is made with the same ingredients and process as a waffle cone but has a finished top edge and sometimes a chocolate lining.
