how to make ice cream cone cupcakes Wow guests at your next birthday party with this adorable, no-mess alternative to a traditional birthday cake. They’ll never know how easy it was to make.

Follow these simple instructions to make ice cream cone cupcakes:


  • One batch of your favorite boxed cake batter recipe, prepared according to instructions
  • 24 flat-bottomed ice cream cones
  • frosting
  • jimmies or sprinkles

To make:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Arrange the ice cream cones on a 13″ by 9″ baking sheet, in a cupcake tin or on our easy to use cupcake cone baking rack.
  3. Add 1/4 cup batter to each cone. To make this super easy, use an ice cream scoop!
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until done. To test for “doneness,” insert a toothpick into a cupcake. It will come out clean when the cupcakes are ready.
  5. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  6. Have fun decorating! Use different frosting flavors and colors to copy the look of real ice cream cones.

A few helpful tips:

  • These cupcakes taste best the day they are made. Store lightly covered to keep them fresh.
  • For an unforgettable party activity, leave off the sprinkles and let the kids apply them themselves. Have a buffet of toppings they’d find in an ice cream parlor, such as gummy bears and fresh fruit.
  • If using a flat cookie sheet, check the cones every 5 minutes. Sometimes the unevenness of the batter will cause them to tip and spill!
