These cupcakes are so cute and so easy to make!
Seriously, aren’t they adorable? They are cake baked inside an ice cream cone with icing on top!
Why have messy cake or cupcakes with liners to throw out when you can have yummy cake cones instead?
You can even make them in cute mini sizes!
Despite what other websites might tell you to do, I’ve tried making these several ways and this way is by far the easiest and best.
So here’s how to make them:
Ingredients listed on back of cake mix box
sprinkles or whatever toppings you want
Buy a box of either regular sized or mini cones. The mini are harder to find, but I love them because they are bite-sized! You can get plain ol’ tan cones or the colored ones – either work. Don’t get waffle cones though. I’ve actually never tried it with waffle cones, so it may work, but bake at your own risk!
Mix up cake mix according to the directions on the back of the box. Pre-heat the oven based on the directions on the back of the box as well. Line ice cream cones in a baking pan, be careful they tip easily. Using a spoon or scoop add raw cake mix to each cone until about 3/4 full. Carefully place baking dish in oven. If any cones tip over quickly pick them back up. (I need to invent a baking dish solely for the purpose of making these cones!) Bake according to the cake mix box for cupcakes – usually around 15-20 minutes. When they are looking brownish on top use a cake tester to make sure they are done in the middle. If they are done (tester does not come out wet) remove the pan from the oven and carefully remove cones onto a cooling rack keeping them upright.
When they are cool ice them with the icing. I just add the pre-mixed icing (for these I bought vanilla and strawberry) to icing bags and pipe it right on the top. Then add sprinkles or whatever you want to add. Enjoy!
When the cone is baked with the cake mix the cone softens a tad so when you bite into them they are more of a cake consistency. You can literally eat the whole thing! But beware, if you are a cake lover, these will become your favorite and you may eat
a few half the pan.
