The Cupcake Project: Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes – Homemade Cupcakes Recipe
For week 3 of The Cupcake Project I made these super, cute Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes! If you’ve been following along my little homemade cupcake (obsession) journey, you know I’m baking my way through this amazing cookbook. If you haven’t been following, you seriously need to catch up! Week 1 I make the out of this world Chocolate Malt Cupcakes, which totally take you back to the old fashioned Soda Fountain days. Week 2 I whipped up some Orange Creamsicle Homemade Cupcakes. And for real… just like those creamy ice cream bars you loved as a kid! I picked these Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes for week 3 because Summer is literally this.close to being here and ya know what that means! Right! Kids out of school, block parties, BBQ’s… All that fun stuff. These seemed to be a perfect choice. I picked up this cool cookbook by Lizzy Early at Sam’s Club and I have to say, best $12 I’ve spent in a long time! And.. CUPCAKES!!! As if baking homemade cupcakes weren’t fun enough for me, these Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes maybe, sort of had me giggle and clap like a 14 year old girl going to prom. Ethan came home from school the day I made them and did the same thing. A-Freaking-A-Dorable! Ready to get your homemade cupcakes baking on with me?

Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes – The Verdict
Are these homemade cupcakes fun or what?!?! Like I said, Ethan and I both clapped and giggled over them. I think when his birthday rolls around this summer, I’m making these Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes rather than a cake. Well, maybe. If I haven’t stumbled into a can’t resist superhero cake idea anyways. I cut 1 in 1/2 so you can see the inside. I still think the BBQ / block party idea is perfect for these as well! And, the Beer Can Chicken recipe for grilling, I made on the other blog would be an awesome way to kick off summer with these for dessert, no? Go on! Invite the neighbors over and impress them with your mad cooking skillz! There’s 1 thing that I would change next time. Before adding the frosting, I am going to pump in some vanilla pudding to the center of the cupcakes. That will really be a party in your mouth, right?!!?? I know, I amaze myself sometimes too.
Don’t forget to check back next week and see which homemade cupcake I pop out with! So, what do ya think? Up for baking your own Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes? You know ya wanna!
