Making fun cupcakes is one of our favorite things to do. Cookie Monster Cupcakes, Unicorn Cupcakes and Campfire Cupcakes are just a few of our favorites.

Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

The cupcake part of these are chocolate and the icing is vanilla with confetti sprinkles. You can make these just like we’ve shown below or you can make them into your own creating by making yours mint chocolate chip or maybe strawberry.

There’s so many ways you could do this by changing the cake flavor, icing and sprinkles. We would love to see what you make!

Melted Ice Cream Cones

Even those these look pretty fun and fancy, they aren’t as hard to make as you might think. You can see on the image above, we start with a basic cupcake, then add a scoop of your frosting, then melted chocolate. These are actually easy to ice because you don’t need it to look clean, you just plop it on so it looks like ice cream!

After you’ve put your melted chocolate on, you can add your sprinkles and a cone. Plus, a cherry if you’d like. So fun!
