Tummy Tuesday! Ice Cream Cone Cakes

Last week, I wanted to be a “fun Mom” who sent something “different” in for the end of season Lacrosse party.  I had completely forgotten about ice cream cone cakes!!  I fell in love with these all over again!cups


Cake mix – any flavor  {We like Funfetti}

Flat bottom ice cream cones {Joy sells colored cones}

2 tubs of whipped frosting – any color/flavor

Sprinkles or other decorations


Prepare cake batter as directed. While Betty Crocker recommends pouring the batter into cupcake papers and then placing cones upside down on top of the batter, I prefer filling the actual cone – not all the way to the top or the batter will spill over (I learned that the hard way!).  Then, your finished cone will look like this (instead of half empty): Ice-Cream-Cone-Cupcake

Bake at 350 for 18-22 minutes.

Transporting the cone cakes is quite an adventure.  I decided on the egg carton, but here are a few other ideas as well:IMG_1464


I LOVE the next two photos and I plan on using cups the next time (but filling candy a little higher for my security!):

    Hey. Thank you for the idea. Liked the concept. I will try it in my kid birthday party.

    Where did you purchase the cups with the lids? Great idea!

      Hi, I haven’t purchased them in over a year, but last time I’m fairly sure I found them at Party City. Any party supply or restaurant supply store should have them. I hope that helps!

    Hi, these are so cute! But what icing was used in the very top photo? It looks taller and stiffer then the subsequent photos. Thank you!

      Hi, I’ve only used frosting out of a can. It is “stiffer” when refrigerated and that photo looks good because the person piped the frosting through a pastry bag. I hope this answers your question! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

    What did you put the cones in/on while you were baking them??

      Hi Samantha, I put the cones in a muffin pan and secured them with foil around the base. I hope this helps! Thanks for visiting my blog :).

    Won’t the ice cream cones burn in the oven? I’d love to test it before my son’s party but don’t have time…

    I love it! And thanks for all the tips on transportation. The first time I made these I dropped half of them on the way to the park for our party. Next time I will do much better thanks to your tips!

      I dropped a tray of cupcakes myself in the driveway…there is no way to save them! I had to find a better way. Thanks for stopping by and commenting :).

    Great post! I must try these soon! The twirled frosting in the top photo looks exactly like ice cream. How fun!
