Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

I wanted something a bit out of the ordinary for the cake choice at Ryan’s party.  I decided on these adorable ice cream cone cupcakes!

Cupcakes in Ice Cream Cones

I followed the directions on the side of the ice cream cone box.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Prepare cake batter as directed on the box.  Yes, I said the box.  I take shortcuts whenever I can get them these days!  I then filled the cones up 3/4 way full.  I used the entire bowl of batter for  24 cones.  I made a box of chocolate and a box of funfetti.  I baked for about 25 minutes.  I let the cones completely cool and then iced with white and fudge icing.  Since I was only doing cupcakes with no actual ice cream, I decided to give options so we had chocolate cake with fudge icing, chocolate cake with white icing, funfetti cake with fudge icing and funfetti cake with white icing.  I used a gallon ziploc back with 2 containers of each flavor of store bought frosting.  Yes, I said store bought.  I inserted a large icing tip in the bag, clipped the corner, filled with icing and piped onto the cupcakes in two layers so it would stack up and look like ice cream.  Topped with sprinkles, I think they looked pretty darn cute!  Not to mention tasty.

*These are not something you can make the day ahead.  The cones get soggy and the tops of the cones bend over from the weight of the cake and icing.

And That’s What Che Said…

    • Thanks Casey! They turned out better than I even hoped and they tasted delicious also! I also didn’t realize how easy they were. Now I am intrigued to find some different combinations. Maybe carrot cake with cream cheese frosting?

  1. They look fantastic! Did the cones survive the oven? I’ve seen loads of recipes that say you need to cover the cones with foil while they’re in the oven. That seems like wayyyyyyy to much work for my liking!

    • The cones did perfect in the oven. I think that is why they recommend baking at 350. I think that is still low enough not to scorch the cones! I agree that covering with foil sounds tedious! I was more worried about them toppling over but once filled they were really stable. These were super easy and no cupcake liners, cake plates or forks needed!

  2. Thanks for sharing your yummy recipes with us at Cast Party Wednesday. I hope you come back and visit us tomorrow.
    Thanks again.
    I hope to see you there!

  3. This would be a great idea for the picnic theme of my daughter’s bridal shower … no trashed cupcake liners to haul away! Thanks for the great idea!
