Bake Cupcakes In Ice Cream Cones

Cupcakes are great for parties. Reduce waste and tweak the concept by baking them in ice cream cones.

Kid craft weblog Kiboomu shares the instructions: Prepare your cake batter as normal and add ¼ cup to ⅔ cup of batter into each cone. Place the cones in the muffin tin and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes or so.

After the cupcakes cool, add icing and whatever ice-cream toppings you like. This works great for kids' parties and can liven up routine office birthdays.

    Cute idea, but so long as commercial sugar cones taste like cardboard I think I'll be sticking with paper cases and just live with the "waste". (Can you imagine the mess, too, after you've had a bunch of people trying to bite into cake through the wall of the cone?)

      I think this is friggin brilliant! I've never noticed ice cream cones being crumbly, so I don't think it's an issue. Now, if I can just find a way to get those really tasty cones from drumsticks to stand up so I can fill them, Mmm

    My mum used to do this for me about 20 years ago. The best cones to use are the wider square cones, but they are impossible to find these days.

    I've been making these & selling them in my cafe all week. People LOVE them! Thank you : )
    And I buy the square base cones at my local Foodland. They're not at all impossible to find. They aren't crumbly & don't taste like cardboard, either.

      Deb, where can I buy square base ice cream cones, what brand do you buy? I am in Victoria. Any info you can give me would be much appreciated. Thank you Kate

    Hi Kate,
    The last flat based ice-cream cones I bought were Homebrand! They taste fine, my kids LOVE them! I just bought them in the supermarket. :0)
