Kid-Friendly Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes Recipe

Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

This kid-friendly ice cream cone cupcakes recipe is made with cupcake batter baked in flat-bottom wafer cones and then iced and decorated. They make perfect birthday party favors or individual desserts. Get the kids involved with decorating beforehand or, if you don't mind the mess, have a decorating station set up at the birthday party and let the guests create their own one-of-a-kind works of art. Strawberry cake mix and multi-colored cones work nicely, but any flavor will do.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 22 minutes

Total Time: 32 minutes

Yield: 20-24 Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes


  • 1 (18.25-ounce) cake mix of choice (those with pudding in the mix work great)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 20 to 24 multicolored flat-bottom wafer ice cream cones
  • Frosting of choice
  • Decorations of choice


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, blend together cake mix, water, oil and eggs until the ingedients are moistened. Then beat with a mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes.

  2. Place wafer cones in the wells of mini muffin pans. Fill the cones 2/3 to 3/4 full of batter, but do not overfill because it will spill over making a mess. Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until toothpick tests clean. Prick the bottom of each cone with a fork or knife so it doesn't become soggy. Let cool completely in pan on a wire rack.

  3. When cool, decorate to your heart's content.
