Tummy Tuesday! Ice Cream Cone Cakes

Last week, I wanted to be a “fun Mom” who sent something “different” in for the end of season Lacrosse party.  I had completely forgotten about ice cream cone cakes!!  I fell in love with these all over again!cups

Ingredients

Cake mix – any flavor  {We like Funfetti}

Flat bottom ice cream cones {Joy sells colored cones}

2 tubs of whipped frosting – any color/flavor

Sprinkles or other decorations

Directions

Prepare cake batter as directed. While Betty Crocker recommends pouring the batter into cupcake papers and then placing cones upside down on top of the batter, I prefer filling the actual cone – not all the way to the top or the batter will spill over (I learned that the hard way!).  Then, your finished cone will look like this (instead of half empty): Ice-Cream-Cone-Cupcake

Bake at 350 for 18-22 minutes.

Transporting the cone cakes is quite an adventure.  I decided on the egg carton, but here are a few other ideas as well:IMG_1464

I LOVE the next two photos and I plan on using cups the next time (but filling candy a little higher for my security!):

    Hi, these are so cute! But what icing was used in the very top photo? It looks taller and stiffer then the subsequent photos. Thank you!

      Hi, I’ve only used frosting out of a can. It is “stiffer” when refrigerated and that photo looks good because the person piped the frosting through a pastry bag. I hope this answers your question! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
