What You’ll Need to make Ice Cream Sundae Cupcakes


  • 1 pkg. White Cake Mix
  • 1 pkg. Ice Cream Cones, 18-24 ct.
  • A container Strawberry Frosting
  • one  container Chocolate Frosting
  • 1 container Vanilla Frosting
  • Maraschino Cherries
  • Sprinkles
  • Star tip



How to make Ice Cream Sundae cupcakes

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare cake mix per package directions and pour batter into cones, filling up ¾ of the way.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until baked through and lightly brown on top.

Using the star tip and a piping bag or Ziploc, fill the bag with frosting. Pipe in a circular motion on top of the cake cone, just like soft serve ice cream looks.

Place about a cup of the white frosting in a bowl and microwave for about 8-10 seconds until slightly melty. Spoon a little bit on top of the frosted cone, and the frosting will run a bit down the sides.

Sprinkle on the jimmies and top with a cherry.

This will make 18-22 cones.

Fun and great for parties!

    Do the cones stand up when filled with cake batter while in the oven?

      Yes 🙂 The batter would spill if you lay down

    Can it just make 12 ice cone cupcakes and how long cupcakes stay fresh?

      It’s the same measurements as if you were to make cupcakes so I’m sure you could just make 12 of them and they will probably stay fresh for a day or two as long as they’re sealed shut. (Pretty much the same principals as regular cupcakes 🙂
