bite-size miniature ice cream cone cupcakes

great alternative to cupcake liners. plus they look cute and you can eat them!

i tried making ice cream cone cupcakes for grandma/tritia's birthday barbeque in march. i accidentally bought the "kid cones" instead of the normal sized ones and this made me really sad because there were 60 of them. i don't know who actually buys the kid-sized ones because you can't fit a decent size of ice cream, let alone cake mix, into the dang things. nevertheless, i baked them anyway and they came out super cute. the result: bite-size miniature ice cream cone cupcakes.

i thought i'd try making the normal-sized ones today, using the colorful cones (i got the idea from a fellow blogger but can't remember who. if i remember i'll post it later). i still had leftover christmas-themed icing (lol...it wasn't even green! it was more like robin egg blue, which i prefer anyway) but i think it contrasted well with the cones (except the green cones). mom suggested i add a little bit of cream cheese to the icing to offset the sweetness, but it tasted the same to me.

despite the fact that i checked on them too much while they were baking and they caved in on themselves, they looked great once i topped them off with icing.

note to self: work on icing skills.




  1. 1

    once you're done mixing all the ingredients together, pour them in about 2/3 of the way into the ice cream cones.

  2. 2

    use any cake mix you want. i used the store-bought funfetti one (you can always just add sprinkles to the cake mix).

  3. 3

    line them all up on a baking tray and bake according to instructions. be very careful if you're using the miniature cones! they tend to topple over easily.

  4. 4

    once they're done baking and cooled off, decorate with icing. i put mine in a ziploc bag, cut off the corner and piped it onto the cupcakes, but i'm sure some of you can do a fancier job and make them look nicer! :)

I remember doing this with my mom as a kid. I'll have to do it again soon. Maybe for my birthday next month with my summer camp group. Thanks for reminding me. :)

like normal cupcakes, they can be stored overnight for the next day. just put them in a sealed container/tupperware and place them in the fridge. :)

should these be eaten the same day that you bake them or do they stay fresh overnight??
