MINI Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes!

The concept of an Ice Cream Cone Cupcake isn't anything new....we've been making the regular size version in my family for YEARS. They're always a FAVE for birthdays and SO super cute!

I made these little CUTIES for the kiddos last weekend ;)
Same basic idea...just a MINI version, in the TINY ice cream cones...the CUTENESS factor seriously goes THROUGH THE ROOF!



Here's a SECRET...I TOTALLY cheated and didn't even BAKE the cupcakes into the cones. To make room for the YUMMY marscapone filling in my SURE THING Cupcakes, I had to scoop out the centers. SO, I took the container of scooped out cake crumbles and just SMOOSHED some into each cone...then topped with Buttercream Frosting, sprinkles and a cherry candy on top!


They were a BIG hit for being so little - LOL! The kids LOVED them and they weren't nearly as messy as giving them each a full size cupcake ;)

Enjoy!

  1. Love the Ice Cream Cone cakes! I tried this one time a number of years ago, and it was a minor fail. I think you have inspired me to give it another go in the near future!

    1. Yay! Baking in the cones CAN be a little tricky....I think the "stuffing" technique would work on the full size cones too...if you just baked a 9x13 ;) Good luck!
