Summer Poke Cupcakes Cones

dsc06788For our Mom’s Group meeting this week, I volunteered to be the MOD since it also happens to Ian’s birthday.  I wanted to bring in cupcakes for the kiddos, but I didn’t want Jill to have to worry about the cupcake wrappers and what not, so I wanted to make the cupcakes in ice cream cones.  I’ve seen it done, but I’ve never actually did it.  So I went out and found a couple of recipes and smashed them together.

For the base cupcake recipe, I found this fun one by Jell-O called Summer Fun Poke Cupcakes, which I added to the Kooky Cupcake recipe from Keeber.

One thing I will say, one cake mix will be more than plenty for 24 cones.  I was thinking of doing this recipe times two (one with wild strawberry gelatin and one with grape), but I won’t have to with the amount of batter I’ll have.  I could’ve filled the cones a little bit more (which I’ll know for next time), but I still had enough batter left over (after 24 cones) to do a small cake for us to have Thursday night after dinner.   This part, I do have to say, I like.  After all, I’m killing two birds with one stone this way – treats for the kiddies in the morning and the birthday cake for dinner all in one swoop.  If you’re looking to use up most of the batter, then I would guess that it’s okay to fill the cones up 3/4 of the way instead of the 1/2 way that is recommended in the directions.

There is one thing that I would like to try, but since this was my first time baking in ice cream cones, I didn’t want to chance it not working.  According to the Kooky Cupcake, it says to place the cones into a muffin pan, but I’m wondering if I couldn’t just put the cones into a cake pan and call it good.  With a muffin pan, I can only bake 12 at a time, but I was able to find all 24 cones in my cake pan when I was setting things up.

For being my first time baking in ice cream cones, I think they came out pretty well.  Adding in the hot gelatin was a good too, but I did have leftovers of this as well.  Since originally, I’m suppose to add 1 cup cold water along with the 1 cup boiling water (which you don’t do for the cupcakes), I still went ahead and added the cold water (basically doubling what was there) and had Jell-o for Ian the next day.

1 pkg white cake mix
1-1/4 cups water
1-1/3 vegetable oil
3 egg whites
1 cup boiling water
1 pkg. (4-serving size) JELL-O Gelatin, any red flavor
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
24 ice cream cones


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prepare batter as directed.  Wrap foil around cone base and place straight up in ungreased muffin pan.  Fill cones with 1/4 cup of cake batter (approximately 1/2 full). Do not over fill the cane or it may bake over the sides. Let batter settle before placing cones in oven.
  3. Place partially-filled cones in oven and bake 25-30 minutes at 350°F.  Cool in pans 10 min. Pierce tops with fork.
  4. Stir boiling water into dry gelatin mix until dissolved; spoon over cupcakes. Refrigerate 30 min. Remove from pans.
  5. Spread whipped topping over cupcakes. Add decorations as desired. Store in refrigerator.
