Mini cupcakes in ice cream cones are perfect for celebrating an unbirthday or serving to the neighbor kids who wind up at your house after school. You’ll need: mini ice cream cones, cake batter, and frosting.

Mix up your favorite cake recipe, from a box or from scratch. Gently add sprinkles to some of the batter for an instant confetti cake.

Put the mini ice cream cones into a mini muffin pan (I’ve seen these mini cones at both Target and Wal-Mart). Pour some batter to the bottom line on the cone–-not too full or they will overflow, less is better. Bake at the temperature the cake mix or your recipe calls for, for about 12 minutes.

Once cooled, add a swirl of frosting to resemble an ice cream cone. This will easily make 60 mini cupcake cones (but you don’t have to make that many).

I thought I’d round up a few of the guest posts I did for other blogs last year. I hope you enjoy a little classic OCP. Photos by Nicole Hill Gerulat.

  6. So adorable!
    We couldn’t help but picture them with our colourful burst-in-your-mouth Juice Pobbles! They would be so cute, with sprinkles as well!
    Love to find creative ideas like this one.
    We are currently out of stock of the Pobbles but we will be getting them (with new flavours) very soon and we can’t wait to try your idea out.

  7. These mini cones hold up very well on a stick too. We make them into cake pops (dip the tip of the sucker stick into melted quick melts before inserting), then decorate as usual. Mini ice cream cone cupcake pops!

  10. Can you share where the lovely white cake stand was found? I’m hoping it’s available somewhere, but guessing it’s from a personal collection. Thanks!

  11. Loved this idea so much that I made them for our Cub Scout meeting last night. My icing wasn’t quite as pretty but the boys didn’t care.

  12. Hi Katie Hernandez–I have found the mini cones at both Walmart and Target. Hope this helps. xo

  13. Hi Susan–The white cake stand is from Crate & Barrel, but it’s a few years old so I don’t think they carry it anymore. The Martha Stewart Collection at Macy’s has some cute small white cake stands. xo
