You'll have to shape the waffles as soon as they are ready. If you leave them for even two or three extra seconds, they will harden and break.
Remove from the iron with a spatula or a knife and give them various shapes.
For example, here I made an ice cream cone. I placed the hot waffle over a glass, turned upside down and held it with my fingers for a while. You can also grab the hot waffle with a towel, so you won't burn yourself.
