Cupcakes in a Cone

As soon as I bought the box of cones, K kept exclaiming that we were going to have ice cream...I don't think he's ever eaten it out of a cone, but he just didn't understand when I tried to tell him we were putting cupcakes in a cone...even while he was eating it, he kept trying to grasp the logic. Sometimes, it just doesn't have to make sense!

These are so darn cute! They'd be even cuter if you take the time to ice them, but I don't like icing, and K wouldn't have lasted another minute if I had made him wait to ice them.

And without further adieu...

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

To make your cones less likely to fall over, wrap a sheet of foil over a muffin pan. Inside each circle, lightly press the bottom of an ice cream cone to make a circle on the foil. DSCN3711 With a sharp knife, cut out the circles and gently insert the cones.
Mix up some cake batter, whether from a box, or from scratch, like this delicious white cake recipe.DSCN3715 Spoon into the cones until they are about 1/2 to 2/3 full. DSCN3717
Pour some chocolate syrup over to make it more ice creamy...and pout later when you can't even tell. Sometimes the hard work I put into something is utterly pointless...DSCN3718 Bake for 20-28 minutes...ours took longer, but it should take about the same time as normal cupcakes. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. DSCN3726 Remove to a wire rack and let cool completely. If desired, ice these super cute to look more like ice cream, and devour!
Thank you House of Hepworths for the inspiration!

  1. When I taught second grade, this was my favorite birthday treat! I need to make them for my own kids now that I'm a mom. Unfortunately, we can't bring edible treats to school because of food allergies, but I would bring these in a second! Using foil in a muffin pan is a great tip!
