Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes??

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I have an order for 2 dozen cupcakes this Saturday. The lady that ordered them doesn't want to spend alot of money. She said to just ice them and the simpler the better. This is my problem: I just can't send cupcakes out without any sort of decoration. I'm not sure if this is how you guys are, but I'm constantly thinking about who's going to see my cakes and what business I can get from them. Who's going to look at a plain iced cupcake wonder where they came from? I did see cupcakes in the gallery that were iced orange and yellow and they were beautiful, but these are mostly for kids. The fundraiser is a carnival and I wanted to do something fun. I need some ideas for cupcakes that won't take alot of time or money. I was thinking of ice cream cone cupcakes. Has anyone ever done these? Are they time consuming? How do they taste? or if anyone has any other ideas that would be great too.

TexasSugar,
Than you for answering and those cupcakes are really cute. I forgot to mention that I can't do the halloween theme. Apparently the lady doesn't celebrate Halloween so I can't do anything with ghosts, monsters, etc. Those cupcakes give me an idea for another order though - thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

Pumpkins, fall colors, leaves?

You can always do some cut outs of fondant leaves and dry them where they arent' all flat and put them on the cupcakes.

Or use a fall candy mold and make some candies (even if you just do them solid colors). I like those for quick cupcakes. Along with doing two toned swirled icing on them. icon_smile.gif

you can make the cupcakes in the flat bottom ice cream cones...then take a big star tip and swirl the icing on like the ice cream machine does them.

sprinkle them with the little sprinkle balls, colored sugar or leaf confetti.

Hope this can help you...

ge,
I did ice cream cone cupcakes for my daughters birthday in school last year...I'll attempt to attach the picture. If it doesn't work I'll put it in my gallery for you to check out.
They were really simple...just fill the cones up and carefully put them in the oven. You can use a star tip and quickly put the icing on the top.
Good luck,
Jennz

Thanks TexasSugar and PastryDiva for your ideas...they definitely do help.
Do you bake the cone with them or put the cupcake in after they bake?

you put the batter in the cones..you place the cones in the cupcake/muffin tin. you fill about 3/4 of the way as they do puff up.

When I had my airbrush available..I'd give them a quick burst of color before I used the appropriate funfetti..lol

Kids always love a little something extra.....

I don't have photos..but I made cupcakes and iced them with a goldish yellow in swirls...to look like a beehive. I made the bee cookies and put them on the top....

PastryDiva, - thanks for the info. They sound like they are going to be fun to make...I can't wait!

IHATEFONDANT: that is such a cute idea! I just need to make something fast and I hate making cookies! In fact I pay someone else to make them. I can be very lazy icon_redface.gificon_lol.gif I would love to see pictures of those.

Ge, is this fundraiser for a school or something?? If so you could color the icing the school colors & pipe the icing on with a large star tip to add a bit of a decorative touch, then put some sprinkles on. Not too labor intense & can still WOW them. icon_smile.gif

One thing I like doing when I make the ice cream cone cupcakes is to crinkle up some small sheets of tinfoil & place them in the bottom of the muffin tin around the base of the ice cream cones, helps to hold them in place a bit more so they don't tip over going into the oven.

Good luck thumbs_up.gif

Ge,
Sorry I am so late getting back to you. I had to step away earlier to cook dinner.
It sounds like you got some great info on making the cupcake ice cream cones. But for future reference...to pm someone, just go to your private messages to the left of this screen under "my account". Click on the new post button. Then there should be a box for you to enter the username. If you know the member you wish to PM, you just enter it. If you don't know it exactly, there is a button to the right of that box that says search for username, you can type in any portion of a name, and it should send back a list. Hope this helps.

I love all the ideas mentioned!! Sounds like you will have some fun with this!

Leslie
