Kupcake Konz Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

What do you get when you combine a cupcake with an ice cream cone?  A really adorable (and portable!) treat that kids (and adults like myself) go crazy for.  Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes!  Over the summer I was visiting a friend who had these great pans that were made specifically for making ice cream cone cupcakes – pure baking brilliance!   Years ago I tried to make these by balancing my cones in a muffin pan, and it was an epic failure to put it mildly, so I never revisited the idea.

Once I saw those cupcake cone pans though, I HAD to have them.  And I had to have one of you have them as well.   I am so excited to share my review of Kupcake Konz Ice Cream Cone Cupcake Pans.  And even better, they are going to give one of you a Kupcake Konz Ice Cream Cone Cupcake Combo Kit!  Yay!

Kupcake Konz pans were created to allow you to bake, cool, decorate, store and even transport your cupcake cones all in one pan.    I am very happy to say that in my experience, these pans do all of that wonderfully.   Oh how I LOVE when a product delivers and does what it says!   Let me show you how this works.  

Kupcake Konz ice cream cone cupcakes allow you to bake a regular cake mix right into ice cream cones.  I picked up Joy Cones, in the “cups” and “mini cups” sizes (both found at my local Walmart).

They recommend that you use a cake mix without pudding in the mix (and they like Duncan Hines, and recommend Jiffy Cake for small batches).   You simply prepare your cake as directed on the package, but instead of using cupcake liners, you get to use ice cream cones.  Fun stuff.   You can find their baking and decorating Tips and FAQ here.

I used a plain white cake mix and decided to make it “funfetti” with the addition of sprinkles.   I wanted to do two types, so first I did a fall funfetti by adding fall sprinkles to half of my batter…

Mix it up and you have funfetti…

I then poured my batter into my ice cream cones that were in the Kupcake Konz pans.

And into the oven these went.    For my mini cones I decided to do mini hearts and a Christmas sprinkle mix.  Kupcake Konz recommends that you use the squeeze bottle to fill the mini cones, so I filled my cones and then added sprinkles.   It was very easy to use the squeeze bottle, and not messy at all.

After I filled my cones, I then added sprinkles to my cones, stirring gently to combine them with the cake mix.

A great thing about adding the sprinkles after filling the cones is that you can use different sprinkles in each one if you like.

In to the oven they go!

Check it out – cake in cones and not a single one (or 12) fell over when I tried to put them in the oven (I did mention my previous attempt without these pans was a failure, didn’t I?).   They can cool right in the pans until you are ready to frost (which I’m pretty much always ready to do).

For my “fall” cupcakes, I made a caramel buttercream recipe from Wilton, but I added one teaspoon of sea salt (I actually always add salt to all of my frostings to cut the sweet and give it a bit more depth of flavor), so now we have a salted caramel buttercream.   It’s as good as it sounds, trust me.

I put my frosting in a large Ziploc bag and cut a corner off to pipe it on the cupcakes (this is my favorite short cut, no piping bags or tips to clean, just toss in the trash when done).   Add your sprinkles and holy cute cute cupcake cones!  Now, because I never want to recommend a product or recipe I don’t try personally…

There is something extra delicious about the cupcakes in the cones.  The cones soften just enough to create a great texture combo.    How fun are these for a non pumpkin dessert at Thanksgiving?????

For the mini cones, I decided to use some of the crushed candy canes I made for my Double Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies to create a Candy Cane Buttercream.   WHERE HAS CANDY CANE BUTTERCREAM BEEN ALL MY LIFE?????   Wowza.   I used my favorite buttercream frosting recipe from Sweetapolita, and added 3 teaspoons of the crushed and sifted candy canes.   It’s life altering deliciousness.  I recommend making it ASAP.  Even if you aren’t making cake or cupcakes.  Just make it and get a spoon.   Seriously.

I loved frosting the cupcake cones in these pans, it’s like having an assistant hold each cone for me.  An assistant who is quiet and doesn’t eat my frosting.  It’s bliss.   And look how cute they are inside!

These are SO fun.   And SO easy.  Love it.

How cute for a party!

And speaking of a party, if you need to take them somewhere, they can stay right in the pans and transport that way!

Just pretend one isn’t missing.  But I did eat it to make sure it was okay for you, just so you know.  :)  It wasn’t my lack of willpower with that salted buttercream or anything like that.

Here is a comparison of the two sizes for you…

I can totally see doing a variety of flavors and decorations, especially in those sweet little mini cones.  I almost want to host a party just to make lots and lots of these.   I guess I could do that without the party, but I may go into sugar shock.   Decisions, decisions.

Two thumbs up to Kupcake Konz and their great product.

  9. Leah K. says

    Aha! I didn’t know they made these. I tried to make my own cone-cake pan this summer using tinfoil. None fell over, but it was still pretty much failure pan.

  10. barbara nicolo says

    I follow you on facebook!!! I love all your ideas!! I liked Kupcake Konz on fb too!!! Love the idea of thse pans!! I hope I win so I can try them too!!

    Enter me. Please! I’ve seen cupcakes served in a cone before, but never knew how they were baked …. what a wonderful product. Thanks for the review and giveaway opportunity!!!!!

  14. ShalahJ says

    I’ve always wanted to try cupcakes in an ice cream cone (it seems like the perfect way for kids to eat them!) but was always worried about them falling over – these pans are the perfect solution!

  15. Chrissy says

    I follow love from the oven on Facebook and LOVE it!! I’ve made these for my daughters birthday at school a couple years now (bonus points with the kiddos, they love these)!! I don’t have the awesome pans though instead I used muffin pans and surrounded the bottom of each cone with tin foil so that I could fit that in the muffin pan and nothing would fall. Then I got a large gift box (like one for a coat) and used an exacto knife to cut x’s in the top of the box. After the cupcakes were done I folded the x’s into the top and fit the ice cream cone cupcakes in them so I could get them to school. What a hassle!! I’d love to win these pans, then I might make them more often :)

  16. Karen Abram says

    Oh my goodness, my mom used to make these for me growing up! When it was my birthday, she would make a bunch for me to take to school for my class. I completely forgot about this I until I saw these and am so happy that there’s something that makes baking these easier. I just came across your website and am obsessed – I can’t wait to start baking!

  17. Darci Wills says

    These are so cute. The whole kit makes it look so easy as well. Thanks for showing us the step by step! I am SO trying the peppermint buttercream. YUM. Maybe over double chocolate brownies or cupcakes. Thanks for sharing and for the chance to win!

  18. Meredyth says

    My mom made these for me to bring to my classmates on my birthday all through elementary school. Cupcakes in cones are near and dear to my heart- I love your idea of using sprinkles to make different colored kinds of funfetti- awesome!

  19. Joan Foust says

    I just love your Blog!!!! So many adorable ideas and SOOO little time….The cupcake cones are the cutest! I am anxious to try the peppermint buttercream frosting too for my Christmas Bunco!!

  20. Sallie says

    I just started following Love From the Oven on FB a few days ago and I’m so glad I did! I travel with work the majority of the year but I can’t wait to get home and start trying some of these ideas!!!

  21. says

    could we turn the cupcake cone upside down after baking and dip in something yummy and then stick some cake pops in it….. I’m starting to have a vision of the little delight!! I would love a pan set!

  22. Donna says

    Adults love these as much as kids do. Have had fun making these in the past. I too would make them more often with this great tool. Thanks for the chance.

  23. Mitzi says

    I have wanted to try this for the longest time, but have hesitated to do this due to cones topping over, as many people have stated that is a problem. This is a Awesome that someone invented this. Would LOVE to WIN this so I can finally try making these for my Kids, and Family, who love cupcakes, and ice cream.
