Part1: Things Needed to Make Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

  • 1 cake mix of any flavor

  • Ingredients required to make the cake batter

  • Flat-bottomed ice-cream cones

  • Whipped cream

  • Sprinkles or edible decoration 

Part2: How to Make Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and meanwhile prepare the cake batter according to instructions on the pack.


Cover the muffin tin with aluminum foil and make holes in the foil where the muffin cups are. This is to ensure that the cones remain stable while baking.


Widen the holes with fingers and place 1 ice cream cone in each muffin cup with the flat bottom side downwards.


Pour 2 tablespoons of batter in each cone so that it reaches the inner lower rim, otherwise, it will topple.


Once all the cones are filled, tap the muffin tin pan on the counter to settle the batter.


Bake the ice-cream cones for 20-30 minutes, check after 20 minutes. You can check the cones with a knife. Cut a knife in the center of the cup cake, if the knife comes out clean, then the cones are done.


Cool the cakes completely and prick at the bottom of the cone to let the steam escape.


Once completely cooled, you can top with whipped cream and decorate with sprinkles.
