I didn't like cone-shaped very much, but one of your references made me settle for pointed croquettes, I think that sounds better.

croquettes


Explanation:
It seems to me that croquettes are normally cone-shaped so the addition seems a bit unnecessary and makes the dish sound wierd. But then I've never seen or heard of 'Zapfenkroketten'on a German menu either....
