Cupcake Tuesday~Snow Cones & Ice Cream Cones

Happy Cupcake Tuesday! I’m so excited you are here! Looking for a cupcake recipe?  Be sure to check out the Cupcake Heaven page, there are over 250 cupcake recipes and decorating ideas! 

I’ve learned that scheduling can change pretty quickly around blogland. And Cupcake Tuesday is no exception. Over the weekend, while chatting with the Dads Rock Bash girls, Keri Lyn from She Saved, sent me a Skype message, that went something like this…I just adore your cupcakes, do you think you would have time to share some Summer Cupcakes with my readers. Well, I had kinda promised myself that I wouldn’t take on any more guest posts until after this weekend’s graduation and the Dads Rock Bash, but…you know, they’re cupcakes…and I just couldn’t say no. So, I adapted my plan a bit, which was to share some graduation cupcakes with you, I’ll post them later in the week.

While trying to figure out what fun Summer Cupcakes I wanted to share with Keri Lyn’s readers, I decided on the Snow Cone Cupcakes, and since these Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes were just so darn fun, I decided to share both with you all for Cupcake Tuesday! And because I’m having a blast doing the how-to videos for you, here are the easy-peasy Summer Cupcakes, just in time for an end of the school year party, birthday get-together or just because!

Snow Cone Cupcakes:

You will need:

Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes:

You will need:

  • Sugar Waffle Cones (or any type cone will work)
  • Cake mix plus ingredients to add
  • Cool Whip (I used Creamy, Strawberry and Chocolate)
  • Sprinkles (any are fine)

Tools that I used:

  • Spatula to spread frosting
  • Ice Cream Scoop
  • Sharp knife to cut excess cake from cone

    Genius Liz, pure genius!!! Every week you out-do yourself with even more awesome cupcakes. I only have one complaint about the video though – we can’t see you enough!! Finally at the end we see your face but we’d like to see you more. Sort of like watching a chef on the Food Network. It’s just not the same if we can only see their hands :)

    Your cupcakes are too cute! I’ve been eying those snowcone cups trying to convince myself I don’t need them for weeks, and I think you just confirmed that I do actually ‘need’ them. ;o)

  24. Fawn says:

    Love your videos! We are doing these today for my little girls birthday. How long does the coolwhip hold up? Do you put it on right before serving? I am in Fl and it is hot hot hot and humid right now. Just curious. I probably will wait until the last minute. Cant wait until tomorrow!!!

  25. Fawn says:

    Thanks for answering so quickly the other day! They held up great and both the “snow cones” and the “ice cream cones” were a hit.

  26. Maria says:

    Just saw this. How clever you young gals are! I wish I knew about this when my son was young. Hopefully I’ll be able to use this when I have a grandchild. (God willing, years from now)

  27. Sprinkles says:

    Sensational idea! We have included it and your website in our summer cupcake feature on Party Cupcake Ideas, great videos too!
