We’re nearing the end of National Ice Cream Month but we aren’t even close to nearing the end of ways we can hack our favorite warm weather treat. Next up, a bit of a riff on the old ice cream cone. In fact, this version completely skips the ice cream for a delicious cupcake treat. Get the adorable kit in our shop!
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and prepare cupcakes according to package directions. Place ice cream cones in a mini cupcake pan and fill halfway with cake batter. Bake according to package directions.
2. Let cupcakes cool completely before frosting with a pastry bag and jumbo star tip. Top with sprinkles and melted chocolate. Garnish with a maraschino cherry!
Now let’s get started!
Begin by gathering your ingredients.
Then prepare the cake mix according to package directions.
Place ice cream cones in a mini cupcake pan. Fill halfway full with cake batter. Pro tip: Use an ice cream scooper for a cleaner and more precise pour. Pop those bad boys in the oven.
After cupcakes have completely cooled, frost with a pastry bag and jumbo star tip.
Top frosting with a few sprinkles.
I mean it looks so good as is, we could almost stop here…
But we just can’t help but take it to the next level with a little “fudge” topping. Melt your chocolate chips and drizzle over the frosting using a pastry bag or plastic bag with the corner cut off.
And for the final touch, put a cherry on top!
These are WAY too cute, don’t you agree?
We recommend tackling this cupcake with the classic wooden ice cream spoon.
