Cake Cones

This is less of a recipe, and more of an adorable idea. I made these cake cones for my son's 3rd birthday party, and the kids loved them. I saw the idea from a local cake maker (Thank you 'Cake Me Smile!'), but the party didn't have the budget for me to buy them for all of our guests. I think my DIY's turned out pretty cute though!

First, make Bakerella's cake balls. Just make the centres and don't coat the yet. (Mine are chocolate cake and chocolate icing. Mmmmm...)

Place your cake balls on a cookie sheet, and top with a mini ice cream cone. Chill in the fridge (or freezer, if you are impatient like me) until firm.

Once the cake balls are firm, melt chocolate (in this case, white chocolate) in a double-boiler. Dip each cake ball/cone in the melted chocolate and top with sprinkles.

An easy way for them to dry and harden standing up was to poke them into the bottom of egg cartons. Isn't it cute how the chocolate drips down the cone a little like melting ice cream?

Love 'em! Can't wait for another reason to make them ;)


  1. The adults loved them too :)

  2. Great idea with the egg cartons! I featured this post on our Facebook page today; if you have any more dessert recipes or related posts please feel free to share them with us at

  3. those are too cute!

    a lazier way to make something similar is to pour cake batter into flat bottom icecream cones and bake like regular cupcakes
    (i put them in muffin tins to bake so if they fall they dont go down like dominos) the batter puff out over the cone and can be iced like a cupcake or dipped like an icecream cone!

  4. where did you find the mini ice cream cones? I was looking for them over the summer for a party!

  5. Cara: They have them at our grocery store (Superstore, which is part of the Loblaws chain in Canada). A box of 72 cones is about $2.50. If they weren't so fragile, I'd send some to you! :)
