Cupcake Cone Craze


My twin daughters, Madeline and Riley, turned two last week and to celebrate we had a big party with family and friends at our home. There were almost 40 adults and 9 children to feed and keep entertained and like at most parties, the dessert was a centrepiece.

Originally I had this great, elaborate plan to bake a cake and decorate it with Cookie Pops made to look like Sesame Street characters. Well, that didn’t work out so I turned to my back-up plan—Cupcake Cones!

These fun little desserts are perfect for kids because there is very little mess, and they look super cute.

Here’s how to make them:

Cupcake Cones

Makes 36

You’ll Need

  • Flat-bottomed ice cream cones (I used 2 boxes for one batch)
  • Your favourite cupcake batter recipe—I am not ashamed to admit that mine came out of a box!
  • Icing
  • Muffin pan
  • Sprinkles to decorate your Cupcake Cones

Prep and Cook

  1. Make your cupcake batter according to the recipe.
  2. Place one flat-bottomed ice cream cone in each section of the muffin pan.
  3. Fill the ice cream cone with cupcake batter (about 2/3 full).
  4. Bake according to recipe instructions (mine were 25 minutes at 350 F).
  5. Cool completely (I left mine overnight).
  6. Ice and decorate.
  7. Eat!

Both the kids and the adults loved them and wondered how I got the cupcake into the cone! This is a fun dessert that is perfect for a birthday party, or as a special treat.
