Surprise Cupcake Cones

I made these for Kaylee's birthday party and they turned out so was a fun twist on a cupcake and easy to do.
Surprise Cupcake Cones
recipe from Betty Crocker the big book of cupcakes
First make 12 regular size cupcakes and 12 mini cupcakes

Yellow Cupcakes (makes 24 regular cupcakes)
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  •  2 1/3 cups flour 
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt 
  • 2/3 cup milk
Mix butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt. On low speed, alternately add flour mixture and milk to the butter mixture. Beat until just blended.
Spray muffin cups so the cupcakes are easier to get out. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.
Bake regular cupcakes at 350 for 20 minutes and mini cupcakes for about 15 minutes.

Make the Frosting
  • 6 cups powdered sugar
  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 3-4 Tbsp milk
  • red food coloring
Mix butter, sugar, and vanilla. Gradually add milk until frosting is smooth and spreadable.

Ingredients for cupcake cones:
  • 12 regular and 12 mini cupcakes
  • pink frosting
  • candy
  • 12 flat-bottom ice cream cones
  • sprinkles
  • maraschino cherries
I made a cupcake holder by slitting an X with a razor blade in the top of a shirt made assembly and serving much easier!

Shhhh, here is the surprise: Fill each cone with candy:
Next, frost the tops of the regular cupcakes and take off the cupcake wrappers. Turn the cupcakes upside down onto the cones. Do the same with the mini cupcakes, turning them upside down on the regular cupcakes:

Frost (I had to add a little more milk to my frosting so that it spread easier. It was a little runny, but it made the cones look like melting ice cream). Add sprinkles, and a cherry on top.

Enjoy! These would make a cute party favor as well:
