cupcake cones recipe from Today show 2015

cupcake cones

I saw this on the Today show today and couldn’t help myself…had to share!

Who knew you could make a cake in an ice cream cone?

Totally gonna’ try this one! Though I’ll most likely tweak it to my linking…such as making the cake a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting!

Find the rest of this recipe and more yummy sweet treat recipes on the today show site:

Vanilla cone cupcakes


  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1¾ cups cake flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 12 flat-bottom ice cream cones

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. While eggs are cold, separate them, placing the yolks in one bowl and whites in another. Cover the two bowls with plastic wrap and allow the eggs to come to room temperature.

3. In a medium bowl, whisk together cake flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.

4. In a separate bowl, beat butter and . cup of sugar with a mixer until fluffy. Add the egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla and mix again.

5. Reduce mixer speed to low. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture in two parts, alternating with milk, and mix until all is combined.

6. In a clean bowl, beat the egg whites with a mixer until foamy. Add the cream of tarter and beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add the remaining . cup sugar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the egg whites into the batter until combined. Do not overmix.

7. Fill ice cream cones about two-thirds full with batter. Place cones in a muffin tin and bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool completely before frosting.

Vanilla buttercream frosting


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk

1. In a medium bowl, beat the butter with a mixer until creamy. Add sugar, one cup at a time, beating after each addition. Add vanilla and milk and mix until light and fluffy.

2. Pipe on top of cooled cupcakes using a pastry bag and tip or plastic bag with the corner snipped off.

Chocolate topping


  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • Multicolored sprinkles

1. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and canola oil. Microwave on high for 20-30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until chocolate is melted. Do not overheat the chocolate.

2. Allow the chocolate to cool slightly. Holding the bottom of a cone, dip the frosted cupcake into the chocolate to coat. Allow the excess chocolate to drip off and add sprinkles. Place in the fridge for 5-10 minutes to harden.
