I really enjoy spending my free time baking so I thought I'd set up a blog dedicated to just that :)

Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

110g unsalted butter, room temperature
110g caster sugar
3 eggs
110g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
12 flat based ice cream cones
chocolate flakes

For the frosting:
225g unsalted butter, room temperature
450g icing sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 180'c/Gas Mark 4 and wrap a 12 hole muffin tin in foil.  Put a hole in each muffin hole and place an ice cream cone in each one (this will stop them falling over in the oven.)

Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy, beat in the eggs one at a time, until well incorporated.  Sift the flour and baking powder and add this a third at a time, folding well inbetween, then add the vanilla extract.

Spoon the mixture into the cones,filling to just below the top of the cone and place in the oven for about 20 minutes so they are springy to the touch and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.  Place on a wire rack and leave to cool.

To make the frosting beat the butter so it is pale and creamy then add the icing sugar and vanilla.

Using a piping bag and a Wilton 1M tip pipe the icing onto the cake, add a chocolate flake (you may need to cut them down) and decorate with sprinkles/raspberry sauce etc.



  1. I had a total nightmare trying to find flat bottomed ice cream cones after trying Asda, Aldi, Lidl, Somerfields, Iceland and Sainsburys I gave up then decided to try Morrissons and yay they had them :)

    They were so worth it, very cute and very tasty, got a lot of attention from Facebook friends too :)

  2. Great for summer picics - the family would be so impressed if I popped these out the picnic hamper!

  3. They are absolutely adorably and the Raspberry sauce that Treat sell is exactly the same as ice cream van sauce :) Also the weird thing is if you use cheap vanilla extract it actually tastes like ice cream, it's odd x

  4. You'll have to send me a pic if you make some :)
