How to make Ice-cream Cupcakes the Easy way | BAKING DIY

Ice-cream cupcake step by step cooking tutorial
Everyone has seen the cute cupcakes that look like ice-creams in cones but did you know how easy they are to make?

Well after searching for tutorials on how to make these Ice-cream Cupcakes, I decided there is an easier way to make them that is just as effective, cheap and quick. I don't have hours to make cupcakes, just like many other mothers do not. Enjoy everyone, I know you will thank me later for this Baking Hack.

Most people who make these pour the cake batter straight into the cone and bake as per cake the instructions, You can do it that way but this is how I do mine. I prefer my way as you use a LOT of cake batter otherwise & when cooking in bulk it's a pain in the butt. I also noticed it is hard to get the right amount of cake mix into the ice cream cone to bake at the right height.

  • Pour mini marshmallows and small gum-balls into the base of the ice cream cone. 
The gumballs are for some weight so once completed they will not tip over, but you could use any lollies.

  • Cook cupcakes in small paper baking cups. 
Make sure you cook the cakes so they rise above the liners, you do not want flat cakes.
  • Once the cakes are cooked and cooled slightly, get your cupcake out of the paper cup and shove it into the top of the ice cream cone snuggly. This should be a tight fit if you have used the right size paper cups to match your cones.
  • Decorate the top of your cupcake with some frosting and whatever else your imagination can think of to look like real Ice-creams
