Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

Hi you guys!

First off...sorry for my lack of posts this week!
I have been making new friends, visiting lots of cute blogs!  Pinning away on Pinterest and getting some blog inspiration!  {If you need an invite to Pinterest send me a e-mail and I'll send you a invite!) I've come up with some fun ideas for back to school decor AND made a few fun things....Do you all decorate for back to school?
I have never decorated for back to school I decided that  I've been missing out! 
What I came up with  and made is super easy and like I said...FUN! I will give you a little sneak peek at the end of my post for one of them!

Ok, so lets talk about these cupcake cones. I have seen these around Blogland.  
I've seen the cute,pretty.PERFECT ones..and some failures,over flowing ones that have made me crack up! I thought..."I so want to try these".
So began the Ice cream cone cupcake adventure at my house!

I started by using this cute cookbook. I actually have only made one recipe out of this book
and it's the hot dog octopus on the front cover.  This is a super cute book though!


This is what I used:
-12 cupcake box mix
-12 ice cream cones
-Colored Sprinkles
-Fluffy Butter Cream Frosting  (I just made a small 1/2 batch of the frosting)

Make the cake batter using the instructions on the box, spoon 1-1/2 T. of cake batter into the cones. I used a cupcake tin to bake them in, it worked great!
Bake the cupcakes at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Frost and sprinkle after they are cooled. 



Ah...so pretty!




Now turn your head to the right and pretend like the one on the left isn't melting...Oh, wait...that doesn't help!



Okay, look what happened...ALL BUT THREE  looked like this!  I thought MINE were not going to over flow...and THEY DID!  I just cheated and turned them around and took pictures that way!
I would only use 1 Heaping Tablespoon of batter to get non-overflow ones!

P. Princess and her cute friend sure enjoyed them though!  The "melting" one got scarfed right up after I took a picture! These are so cute and fun!  The recipe says to actually put a scoop of ice cream on on the top, then add sprinkles.  I think next time we will try this! 

NOW if you try these and yours turn out totally PERFECT...I want to see!  

Oh, here's the sneak peek of one of the fun things I made...



Have a great day!

I'll be linking up to these great parties:

  3. I actually like the "drips". Makes it look more authentic without the mess. You could get one of those icing tips and just pile the icing up high if you don't want to add the ice cream on top.

    Those ice cream cupcakes are very cute. When I was about 4, one of my friends had a birthday party and instead of a traditional cake, his mom past these out. Not as messy for the whole house of kids she had that day, and we all loved them.
