One of my co-workers asked if I would donate a baked item for her daughter’s basketball team bake sale. Who can resist a fundraiser for kids? I was going to bake some cake pops since that has been on my “to try” list, but I didn’t allow enough time to form the balls, freeze them, and then decorate, so I made mini cupcakes instead! I found pint sized ice cream cones at my grocery store, dipped the cones and cupcakes in melted chocolate and tada, CUTENESS!!
Mini Ice Cream Cupcakes
- 1 box of cake mix (don’t get super moist option)
- Wilton melting chocolate (I bought 1 pink and 1 white)
- 1 box mini ice cream cones
Make cupcakes according to the boxed directions, and let cool. The denser the cake, the better. Super moist cake will fall apart while dipping in the chocolate.
I used pink and white chocolate for my strawberry and vanilla cupcakes. Next time I’ll add some chocolate scoops 🙂
Follow Wilton’s microwave melting instructions.
Dip your cones, and then dip the mini cupcakes and assemble. Decorate right away so the sprinkles stick to the ice cream. Your cones will harden in about 15 minutes. You can carefully transfer to the refrigerator to speed up the process, but you really need steady hands, and something to prop the cupcakes in. I had a few ice cream cones plop to the floor.
Wouldn’t these be super cute for a first birthday party? A bit of sweetness for those little tummies!

Cuteness is an understatement. I’m sure that they were extremely popular at the bake sale.

Very cute and creative.

Oh yes, I love all that pink chocolate!!! Very cute and creative!
I wanted to use the lavender chocolate because it’s so pretty, but I don’t think it would look as authentic as the other colors 🙂

I’ve seen ideas similar to this before and have always wanted to try it. You made it look really easy and your execution is adorable! Loving the pink candy melts. I bet these sold out with a quickness!
Try it, Heather! They’re super easy to make, and the bite size is just the right amount to satisfy a sugar craving fix 🙂
