A weakness for me is and will always be SWEETS. I wanted cake and my kids wanted ice cream. While getting all the supplies needed to make chocolate cupcakes, it came to me that I could make both and Ice Cream Cupcakes were born!
This has to be the simplest cupcake to make in the history of cupcakes. Not to mention the least messy. You don’t need cupcake wrappers because the cone takes it’s place, so go grab your favorite cake mix and icing and the let’s get this party started! FYI: Prepare your cake mix as directed on the box.
- Use an ice cream scoop to place the batter into the ice cream cones.
- Scoop the icing (I used buttercream) into a candy decorating bag to make the “ice cream” easier.
- Don’t stress too much about overfilling your cups. Once it’s cooked, if the cone was too full, simply cut off the top with a knife. I did this for a few of them and made a separate dessert (What I’m calling ice cream cupcake nuggets) from that by putting a little bit of icing in between two tops.
