Nifty Ice Cream Cone Cupcake Tips!

| February 6, 2014

Double Scoop Cupcake Cones:

While you are baking your favorite cupcake cones in the Nifty Cupcake Cone rack, bake another set of cupcakes alongside.  When finished baking, put a dollop of frosting on top of the cupcake cone and place the baked cupcake on top of the frosting.  Continue the swirl frosting and there you have your DOUBLE SCOOP Ice Cream Cone Cupcake!

Tip for No More Soggy Cones:

To eliminate soggy cones, remove the baked cupcake cones from the oven, let cool to the touch, then poke a couple small holes in the bottom of the cone to release the steam and moisture.  This will ensure that your entire party will enjoy crispy ice cream cone cupcakes!

Recipe and instructions: Nifty Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

  • Prepare your favorite cupcake batter
  • Place cones* in Nifty Cupcake Cone Baking Rack
  • Fill cones approximately half full with cupcake batter.  Do not overfill.

Tip: Test bake 1 cone to determine the correct amount of batter needed

  • Place rack on baking sheet to catch any overflow
  • Place rack and baking sheet in a 350 pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the cake cone comes out clean
  • Let cones and rack cool before decorating and serving.

Tip: Poke 2 small holes in the bottom of the cupcake cone as soon as they are cool to the touch to help keep the cone crunchy and fresh.


*Sugar and waffle cones not recommended.

  3. Have been making these type cones for years for my kids. I used a cupcake pan to hold them up while baking and also for transporting. Yep, yikes is right. They would topple over and make a mess. Thank goodness they tasted so good that the little messiness was over looked by many. Tried making holders but failed. Also love the tip about poking the bottoms. Some of mine came out soggy and some not. But now I will have all soggy free cones. So excited and can’t wait to get this little gem.

  4. Where can i get one of those racks to hold the cones.

  5. I need to make these a day ahead. Will the cones get soggy if I refrigerate them? I would need to refrigerate because of the buttercream icing… I’m assuming the condensation would build up in the fridge and that I should ice them before serving. What do you think?

  6. Hi there Danielle. Dis anyone answer your question about how long they will keep? Or do you know now?
    Thanks Gail

  7. How long they will the cone cakes keep, if I make them in advance of a birthday party
    Thanks Gail

  8. But is it sufficient to get you product the purchaser?
    Customers will definitely spend hours in stores trying
    to find the customized birthday gifts for the other individual.

    Bring those characteristics to his attention once again.
