Would expanding foam work? You could shape them into ice cream scoop shapes and attach to thin cardboard rolled into a cone shape.

I've seen expanding foam used...just make a large glob inside the cone and it should push its way out in the shape of a bubble...then maybe add a little around the edge after its dried to make the smoothed part...

U can also use styrofoam balls for snocones...the styro sparkles like ice even with paint on it :)

I got a Dollar Tree catalog in the mail today and it had the pointy waffle cones in brite colors/toppings. The best part is it's actually a dog's chewtoy so it's soft rubber and probably bigger than the bubblecones. I'm going to pick some up for future use if the store has them.

How about using some "waffle foam"like the use for mattress toppers?

Or if you want something more rigid, get some "Ditra." - it's a plastic tile underlayment that looks waffled.
