Expert Tips

– You can make the cake pops on a stick (or popsicles). To do this, create a ball, and add the stick into the ball before dipping it in glaze and sprinkles.

– If you want to make the Ice Cream Cone Cake Pops for a large crowd, create a box to serve them in. Simply use a large sturdy box and make small holes to allow the cake pops to stand upright.

– Leave the sticks and ice cream cones, and serve these as cake pop truffles! Experiment with other cake mixes (like chocolate and vanilla).


– Drizzle melted chocolate over the glaze instead of adding rainbow sprinkles.

– As an alternative to glazing, use melted white chocolate, dark chocolate, or caramel.

– Use cream cheese frosting as a glaze. This will go especially well with a carrot cake mixture.

– Crumb chocolate sandwich cookies into the cake mixture.

How To Store Ice Cream Cone Cake Pops

If you use fresh cake, the cake pops will keep for a week. If you keep them for a longer time, mold might develop.

The cake pops balls can be frozen. To serve, allow to thaw in the fridge. Then glaze and serve. You can also add the sticks before freezing if you’re serving them in this way. Store in an airtight container. They will keep up to 3 months in the freezer.

Alternatively, you can store them in the freezer for up to 2 weeks. Store in an airtight container.

How to make Ice Cream Cone Cake Pops


Place the crumbled cake in a large mixing bowl.


Mix crumbled cake with cream cheese.


Use your hands to roll our 8 evenly sized balls.


Cover the top of the ice cream cone with melted chocolate.


Use the melted chocolate to secure the red velvet cake ball.


Let it sit for 5-7 minutes until chocolate hardens. Dip each cake pop in the pink glaze.


Add rainbow sprinkles and let the glaze set.


If you don’t want to use a boxed cake mix, you can make any basic cake recipe for the cake pops. If you’re baking your own cake, however, make sure to discard the browned edges before crumbling the cake.
