Ice Cream Cone Cake

IMG_5316I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream cone cake. The best part, it won’t melt. This adorable little cake is so simple to make and tastes delicious.

Ingredients

  • A mini six-inch cake
  • A tub of vanilla frosting
  • Sprinkles
  • Better Crocker Decorating Cupcake Icing in Chocolate
  • 5 mini ice cream cones
  • Vanilla cake batter to fill in the ice cream cones

Directions

  • Cover the mini cake with vanilla frosting
  • Lightly sprinkle colorful sprinkles around the top edge, sides and bottom of the cake
  • Fill 5 mini ice cream cones with cake batter halfway and place in the oven at 350 degrees for 12 minutes
    • It helps to put the mini cones in a mini cupcake tin to bake them, so they are less likely to fall over
  • Let the cupcake cones completely cool off
  • Once cooled, use the chocolate decorating cupcake icing to top the cones off and make it look like frozen yogurt
  • Sprinkle some sprinkles on the top of the chocolate frosting
  • Lightly press the cones against the side of the cake
    • You may want to wait to do this until right before you are serving it to prevent it from falling over
  • It works best to keep the cupcake cones in the fridge until right before you are serving them to prevent the icing from melting

Last but not least, let them eat cake! And make sure to save some for youself as well!

Ingredients

  • 1 yellow cake
  • 2 containers of vanilla frosting
  • 1 box of Oreos
  • 1 bag of mini Oreos
  • 8 Junior Mints
  • 8 brown M&Ms
  • 10 candy eyes

Instructions

  • Cover the cake with vanilla frosting
  • Split 8 regular Oreos in half and put a Junior Mint in the middle of the Oreo
  • Split 8 mini Oreos in half and put a brown M&M in the middle of the Oreo
  • Randomly add the Oreos on the cake alternating sizes and then add on the candy eyeballs to fill up the rest of the space
  • A second option is to pair the Oreos and candy eyeballs up so that it looks like pairs of eyes all over the cake
