Cupcakes Baked in Ice Cream Cones
When I posted the picture of these cupcakes on Twitter last night the response was overwhelming and several people requested the recipe so here y’all are!
Cupcakes Baked in Ice Cream Cones
We found these adorable multi-colored cones at our local HEB so that’s what we used, they’re just so fun and colorful!!
Put your cones in 2 – 9X13 baking dishes ( I had 36 cones and used about 24)
Make cake according to directions
Fill the cones about 3/4 of the way up with batter
Bake one pan at a time at 350 for about 25 minutes or until the top of the cupcake springs back when touched
Decorate them with any color, flavor or type of frosting and sprinkles that you prefer!
Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes
- 1 box cake mix (or homemade, whatever) I used Golden Butter
- 2 (16 oz cans) frosting (or homemade) I bought buttercream and whipped in 4 oz cream cheese to cut the sweetness. It makes an amazingly yummy frosting that’s not too sweet for the big people and the little ones still love
- 24 flat bottom ice cream cones
- non-pareils and other decorative things
- pastry bag with appropriate tips (please don’t do the snipped baggie thing, it looks like piles of poo) or batter knife for spreading
- 2 – 9X13 dishes
- Prepare cake mix as directed.
- Place cupcakes in 9X13 dishes and fill about 3/4 with batter
- Bake one dish at a time for 25 minutes or until the cupcakes spring back when pressed
- Let cool, decorate and devour!!!

You forgot to mention the part about how they are WAY easier than regular cupcakes, especially for toddlers who can’t peel wrappers themselves. LOVE them. A LOT.

I’ve been wanting to make cupcakes in ice cream cones for so long and I always forget to do it! These are just adorable!
When you say you bought buttercream…where? Was it in a tub in the baking aisle? Like frositng in a can? Or did you get it from the bakery? I suck at making buttercream and I loooove it more than any other food. 🙂

How many cups does one cake mix fill?
I got 2 dozen cupcake filled cones out of this, I would say it ranges between 18 to 24 depending on how full you fill each cone 🙂
Doesn’t the cone stay ok? i always think it will burn on the oven….
Sybil, I’ve never had a problem with the cones 🙂 They don’t burn at all! Hope you try this and love them like we do!
Thanks Rachel! I’ll try for sure =)
