I melted agar agar in almost boiling water and reduced the temperature to 115 F.

I then coated the inside of waffle cones with the liquid. My cones are soggy.

Is there anything I can do to prevent this.

Any suggestions for other ways to waterproof the inside of waffle cones and still keep them crispy?

I want to serve hot and iced lattes in these cones in my coffee shop.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Mary

    I think most liquid will render the waffle cone unusable very quickly, hot or cold whatever the coating you will use, or the coating will change the taste of the coffee itself (using chocolate for example). – Max Jun 26 '18 at 20:50
  • @moscafj the answer to the proposed duplicate suggests agar agar, which seems to not have worked! – Erica Jun 26 '18 at 22:03
  • have you ever seen this done successfully ? Using the latte to make an ice cream/custard/yogurt might get the flavor profile you are looking for – Cos Callis Jun 27 '18 at 0:43

    @Erica I believe we identify questions as duplicates, whether or not the answers are correct, or worked. This can also serve to bring renewed attention to a question or issue. My reading of the duplicate question, however, leads me to believe an edible solution is unlikely. – moscafj Jun 27 '18 at 10:32
