To make them, you simply make your batter, fill the cones, bake, and decorate! These ice cream cone cupcakes are great for a part, as you can customize them as you want. Kids will love them!

What Are Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes?

Ice cream cone cupcakes are essentially ice cream cones that are baked with a miniature cake inside. The frosting is added after baking to make it look like a real ice cream cone. They are so cute, you almost don’t want to eat them!

How to make Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

These super cute Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes are easy to make and assemble. First, an upside-down cake pan (covered with aluminum foil) is used as a stand for your cones. The batter (made by combining the cake mix with orange soda) is then added to the cones and baked until cooked through. Decorate and serve!


– You can fill the ice cream cones with any other batter you like. You can also use a different cone type like waffle cones.

– You can use any other frosting you like, try buttercream and funfetti for a fun ice cream cone!

– If you see the cones are becoming soggy, you can poke small holes in the base of the cone.

– Make different cupcake flavors, by using another boxed cake mix. Other frosting ideas include cream cheese frosting paired with carrot cake batter, dark chocolate ganache paired with chocolate cake.

How To Transport Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes?

Transport the Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes in the same way you would bake them. Use an upside-down cake pan covered with foil. Alternatively, use a large cardboard box, covered in the same way.

How to store Cupcake Cones

Store the Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes in an airtight container at room temperature.



Place a round cake pan face down on foil and wrap the entire pan with it.


Turn it over and fit the cones in the aluminum so that they are secured.


Mix cake mix with orange soda and butter.


Whisk until a batter forms.


Pour the mixture into cones.


Bake for 15 minutes at 170°C (338°F).


Use a skewer to make holes in the cake of each cone. Decorate half with melted chocolate and colored sprinkles.


The other half with caramel and hazelnut.


If you don’t want to use orange soda, feel free to use seltzer water
