Here’s an old-fashioned favorite perfect for a child’s birthday party: cupcakes baked right into ice cream cones! We have the vintage recipe right here for the original ice cream cone cupcakes from the 1950s, made with boxed cake mix in any flavor you like.
This recipe should make about 24 cupcake cones — just be sure not to over-fill the cones with batter. For a modern-day variation, you can check out the Betty Crocker site.
Festive ice cream cone cupcakes recipe
Heat oven to 400 F.
Make batter for cupcakes as directed on any flavor Betty Crocker Cake Mix package.
Pour scant 1/4 cup batter into flat-bottomed waffle ice cream cones, filling scant 1/2 full. If you fill the cones too full, they will not have a nice round top.
Set on baking pan and bake 15 to 18 minutes.
Cool and frost with any Betty Crocker Frosting Mix.
“I frosted mine with chocolate fudge flavor frosting and then sprinkled them with those teeny colored candies.” – Bette Anne
