Cupcake Cones


  • 16 flat-bottom ice cream cones
  • 1 recipe for a 2-layer cake


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F or temperature directed in the cake recipe.
  2. Put the ice cream cones into two muffin tins and stabilize with small rings of aluminum foil around the cones. 
  3. Fill cones 1/2 to no more than 2/3 full.  Overfilling cones will cause the batter to overflow. 
  4. Bake until toothpick comes out clean, about 15 to 20 minutes.
