Cupcake Cones: A new Petite Version


In honor of the day of Love, I’ve made another version of my
Cupcake Cone.


Say hello to the Petite Ice Cream Cone Cupcake.


I really love the Original Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes, but sometimes you just want a bite, not a whole huge piece!


I found these mini cones on the ice cream isle at the grocery store. They are “kid” cones.

Ack! Aren’t they just seriously ah-freaking-adorable?!


Like little ducklings following momma duck around.

They are made the exact same way as the Original version, just bite-sized. They are great for a quick taste or for Kids!


I am by no means a Baker. These Cupcake Cones are so easy to make. Trust me, you can make these!

I started out with these three items:


Ice Cream Cones, Box Cake Mix, & a container of Frosting.

Mix the cake mix according to the instructions on the back of the box. The easiest way to fill the cones is by putting the batter in a gallon size ziploc bag, snipping the corner, and squeezing the batter into each cone.


Once the batter is ready, you’ll need to get the cones ready.


When the cones are filled with batter, simply bake them according to the directions on the back of the box. For mine, I baked them at 350 degrees F for about 18 minutes.


When the cones are cool to the touch it’s time to frost them. This is the fun part!

Just fill a quart size ziploc the same way you did for the batter. NOTE: Use a real Ziploc brand bag. I used the store brand once and the seam split open and caused a huge mess.


The easiest way to pipe them after you snip a hole in the corner of your frosting bag is to start on the outer edge of the cake and do a clockwise motion with the icing into the center. (I did a counter-clockwise twist though because I’m a lefty.)



ICING & SPRINKLES TIP: If you frost them all first, then add sprinkles, the frosting will already have started setting on the cones and the sprinkles won’t stick as easily. I recommend frosting one, then adding sprinkles, then start the next one.


And that, my friends, is how a non-baker like myself can make head-turning, jaw-dropping, delicious Cupcake Cones.

{They really do taste amazing. I like them better than a basic cake.}
