- For the Cupcakes
- 1 box cake mix (plus any required ingredients: water, oil, eggs etc)
- 24 flat bottomed wafer cones
- For the Frosting
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, unsalted
- 1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Food coloring (optional)
- Sprinkles (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prepare cake mix according to directions. Fill ice cream cones 2/3 full and place in baking tray.
Bake in 350°F oven until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes.
Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool completely (be sure to leave ample room between the cones so they don't get knocked over).
In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer combine butter and sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and mix until thoroughly combined. Divide frosting between several ramekins and add food coloring, as desired.
Once cupcakes have cooled completely, frost and decorate with sprinkles. Store covered up to two days.
