More About This Recipe
Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes are a retro classic!

They are easy to make and uber eye-catching. A truly fun twist on your basic cupcake, without all the hubbub that normally goes into cleverly decorated cupcakes.

To make our Swirly Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes extra-cool, we swirled together a batch of vanilla frosting with a bit of chocolate frosting to create a  twist ice cream cone look. If you've never decorated cupcakes with this swirled technique, it may look complicated, but is actually quite simple.

To break the process down, here's an easy three-step photo tutorial.

Step 1:

Grab a plastic pastry bag and fit it with a large star tip. Open the pastry bag by folding it down over your hand.

Step 2:

Use a spoon to scrape some vanilla frosting up one side of the pastry bag. Carefully plop some chocolate frosting into the second half of the pastry bag. Twist the pastry bag closed.

Step 3:

Pipe the frosting onto your cooled ice cream cone cupcakes. Top with a maraschino cherry and enjoy!

ENJOY!
