[day 28] – ice cream cone cupcakes

14 May

I saw these ice cream cone cupcakes in a cupcake calender at Chapters last year and only remembered about them recently. It was a little bit of a disaster because I didn’t have a recipe and just winged it, but in the end, they turned out and tasted good—and looked super cute 🙂

cone cupcakes 1I only bought a box of 18 cones thinking that it would be more than enough for the amount of batter one box of cake mix would make…
cone cupakes 2Of course I was wrong and I had extra batter. I don’t like wasting and topped off the cones with the remaining batter…
cone cupakes 4This was the result… the batter leaked over the edges of some of the cones and it was a mess!
cone cupakes 5As you can see, the cake was too high on the cones, I was aiming to have the cake rise only to the rim of the cone.
cone cupakes 3This is strawberry jello powder mixed into whipped vanilla Betty Crocker icing.

Since I don’t have the exact recipe, I can only tell you what I did…


1 box white cake mix and ingredients required to prepare the batter (eggs, oil, milk, water, etc)

1 container whipped icing

1 small pkg strawberry jello powder

24 flat bottomed ice cream cones (this is only an approximation as I only had 18 cones and it was not enough)


1. Follow the instructions on the cake mix box to prepare the batter and preheat the oven.

2. Fill the cake mix batter till the cone is 2/3 full.

3. Place filled cones into a glass baking pan.

4. Bake the cones for the length of time specified on the cake mix box.

5. Using a handheld mixer, blend the jello powder and icing till the colour is smooth while waiting for the cones to bake.

6. Let the cones cool completely before icing (you may choose to use a piping tip and bag to do so).

    These look like so much fun to make! They turned out delicious! I’m really surprised that you used strawberry jello powder!! I was wondering how they turned out so deliciously strawberry tasting!

        an easier way to do these is to use a muffin tin and fill the cups 1/2 full of batter then inverting the cones on top of the batter and baking. the cake rises and bakes right into the cone.
