It's a cupcake inside of a wafer ice cream cone! Use your favorite flavor of frosting and toppings. I have no doubt they will be a favorite for you as well...enjoy.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Set ice cream cones upright in 24 muffin cups.

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

  • 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.

  • 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).

Tips

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

I made a layered rainbow cake for my daughters fifth birthday party and I'm allowed to send treats into her preschool to celebrate her special day with her class so I made these! They were a huge hit and adorable. I used the same Wilton gel dyes I used for the rainbow cake for more vibrant colors and made a buttercream frosting and added sprinkles. Too cute.:) Read More
