Ingredients

  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package white cake mix

  • 1 cup water

  • 3 eggs

  • cup vegetable oil

  • 1 drop red food coloring, or desired amount

  • 1 drop green food coloring, or desired amount

  • 1 drop yellow food coloring, or desired amount

  • 1 drop blue food coloring, or desired amount

  • 24 flat-bottomed wafer ice cream cones in assorted colors

  • 1 (16 ounce) container prepared vanilla frosting

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Stir cake mix, water, eggs, and vegetable oil together in a bowl until moistened; beat the batter with an electric mixer set on medium speed for 2 minutes.

  3. Divide cake batter into 4 equal portions in separate bowls. Tint each bowl a different color, stirring in red, green, yellow, and blue food coloring to reach desired shade.

  4. Set ice cream cones upright in 24 muffin cups.

  5. Spoon about 1 1/2 tablespoons of each colored batter into cones, leaving about 1 inch of room from the top.

  6. Carefully transfer cones to the preheated oven and bake until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a filled cone comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.

  7. Cool cupcakes thoroughly before decorating, about 1 hour.

Cook's Notes:

I've made these cones on numerous occasions - birthdays, holidays etc... they are a BIG hit with kids and adults. I adjust the cake colors for the occasion I am baking for (example: Christmas - red/green; Memorial Day, red/white/blue).

If making for a bunch of kids, I like to place cones upside down in cupcake papers (looks like a melted ice cream cone).
