Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

I had a craving for cupcakes the other day but I wanted to do something different (I get bored easily). I remembered, a long time ago,  of seeing a blog where the poster made cupcakes in ice cream cones. Well, seeing as I have been having a rough time with my hands lately (dry, cracking and cuts) I thought this would be a simple dessert. So I purchased some plain vanilla cones (the one with flat bottoms) and some chocolate icing (they sell them in a can that can be sprayed!!.


Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes




Your favorite cake mix

I used: My Yellow Cake recipe

vanilla ice cream cones that can stand up

Your favorite icing and any sprinkles or decor


  1. Make your cake batter
  2. Place ice cream cones, standing up, in a cupcake tin (makes it easier to place the cones in the oven later)
  3. Fill cones 3/4 full with cake batter (it will rise and filling it too high will cause longer bake times)
  4. Bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes or until when you insert a toothpick, it comes out clean
  5. Allow to cool before decorating with frosting
