Ice Cream Cone CupcakesIce Cream Cone Cupcakes

Since yesterday was the “official” birthday of my little man I decided to make him something fun, even though we’ve been partying all month long.  I remembered having ice cream cone cupcakes as a kid and loved them!

They were actually just as easy as making cupcakes.  All you need is your favorite cake mix, a box of ice cream cones, frosting and sprinkles (if desired, but who wouldn’t want sprinkles?)

1-Mix up the batter according to directions on the box, or use your favorite homemade recipe.

2- Put the cones into a muffin pan or something similar to help them stand up.  I used a muffin pan.

3-Fill the cones until just above the first ring (see pic below)Ice Cream Cone cupcakes

4-Bake at 350° for 20-25 mins.  Check and 20 mins.  Cupcakes are done when a toothpick can be inserted and removed without any cupcake goop on it.

5- Wait to cool and then frost with your favorite frosting.  I used white vanilla frosting and tried to make them look like soft serve cones.  It totally worked because my nephew came in to have one, picked it up, took a bite and then said, “Hey, I wanted ice cream!”
