The history of the ice cream cone!

The very first cone appeared [in the early 19th century]. One example can be seen in a French engraving published in 1807, in which a busty lady at a Parisian café hangs her mouth open before a precariously sideways ice cream cone.
But could she chew the cone? The owner of the print said that’s likely, although paper and metal cones were prevalent in France. Edible waffle cones were also popular in Dusseldorf, Germany, before the turn of the century, and English cookbooks from the middle of the 19th century give recipes for a custard-style ice cream served in delicate baked almond cornets.
