Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

(Whole Foods also carries Let's Do Gluten Free Ice Cream Cones)

Isn't this just too cute? Kids love these and they are perfect for birthday parties. I have a small stash in the freezer so the girls can have something special at parties where they cannot have the birthday cake. These cupcakes are so easy to make it's almost silly. Here's what you do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place 12 or 24 ice cream cones, depending on the amount of cake batter you have, onto a baking sheet or into a muffin tin. Fill the cone a scant 3/4 full with cake batter (I like using chocolate, either Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake or Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes). Bake 20 - 25 minutes, or until a tall toothpick inserted in the center of one of the cupcakes comes out clean (they will take a few minutes longer than traditional cupcakes). When they are done, place cones onto a wire rack to cool completely. Frost with Mock Buttercream Frosting or other frosting as desired.

That looks good! I have a naive (stupid) question: Do the cones tip over in the oven when you fill them up and put them in?

Unless you are not careful putting them in the oven or taking them out of the oven, they will stay upright. The batter inside of them gives them weight so they are not too tippy. I recommend putting them in a muffin tin if you are afraid of them tipping over. They are a lot of fun to make!

I cannot access the links to your vegan choc. cupcakes or choc cake! It is my kiddos favorite! Any help would be so appreciated - thanks for all the recipes and inspiration!

Hi Shell,
sorry about that, I've been doing some recipe editing/maintenance. The links should be working now!
