Hi friends!  Something that you may not know about me is that I love to bake, so once and awhile I like to take a break from the usual fashion posts and throw in something a little different.  Now don’t let this fool you I’m a total amateur at baking (I mean c’mon I’m using boxed mix here), but when I saw these cute cupcake cones on Pinterest I just couldn’t resist trying them out.  I think they came out really awesome and I wanted to share how I made them with you all, so here goes…

You will need:

  • 1 box of cake mix + the water, eggs and vegetable oil called for on the box.  I used the Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme mix.
  • 1 box of ice cream cones
  • 1 container of frosting (I used the Pillsbury brand vanilla flavor)
  • sprinkles
  1. Heat your oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans).  I found that my cones did not need them, but if you would like you can place a muffin baking cup in each of the tins.  Place a cone in each muffin tin.
  2. Divide the batter among the cups, leaving some room towards the top.
  3. Bake anywhere from 16-22 minutes, but be sure to check your cupcakes with a toothpick frequently to make sure they aren’t over cooking.  When the toothpick comes out clean they are done.  Give a generous amount of time for the cupcakes to cool (about 30 minutes or so).
  4. Frost as desired, however for the neatest application I recommend using a frosting bag with a tip.
  5. Enjoy!

I hope you guys try this out – it’s really cute for the summer time, especially if you’re using it as a treat at a party or bringing some over to a friends.  (: 

Thanks for reading!
