Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

Another year older… 32. And I decided to make something a 6 year old would want ๐Ÿ˜† But I’ve always wanted to try these and my birthday seemed appropriate. I made Funfetti cake from scratch and a vanilla buttercream frosting. Really easy and tasty so I will share the tips and tricks I did so you can make these super cute treats! Let’s begin…

What you will need:

Ice Cream Cones (They are called Cups, make sure they can stand up on their own)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
Dash of salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup milk (I used almond milk)
1/3 cup sprinkles

For the buttercream:

1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-3 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon milk

To make the cupcakes, preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Stand about 20 ice cream cones up in a mini cupcake pan. In a bowl,ย whiskย together the flour baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat together butter and vanilla until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time and beat until well blended. Beat in sugar. Slowly add in flour mixture, alternating with the milk until everything is incorporated. Stir in the sprinkles.

Now, you can either just spoon the batter into each ice cream cone, or use a pastry bag or ziplock bag (what I used) so you don’t make a mess.

Fill each cone to about 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes. Don’t worry! The cones will not burn. I was worried about that and they came out just fine. Here is what they will look like when they are done:

I also cut one open so you can see what it looks like on the inside:

So cool, right? I like baking them like this. I’ve seen some people bake cupcakes and then just place them inside an ice cream cone but that’s cheating ๐Ÿ˜‰ This, way, you have cake all the way down to the last bite. However, the cone did get soggy/chewy. I didn’t mind it but my husband was turned off.

Now make the buttercream frosting. Beat butter until nice and creamy and smooth. Add in 2 cups of powdered sugar and vanilla and beat until you get a nice consistency. Add more sugar as needed. Pipe onto cooled cupcakes and decorate however you like! Have fun and enjoy!
