I scream, you scream, we all scream for…


Ice Cream!!!!!!!!! Sorta. Kinda. Okay, not so much. These are all cake and candy impersonating cute little ice cream cones. The cool part is they don’t drip. Their frozen parts are frozen. And unlike the Burgers and Bees Cake Pops from a couple of weeks ago… these ARE in the book. And they are one of my favorites. I think because they look so real. The dark chocolate candy melts as syrup really sell it don’t ya think?


See… it’s cake inside just in case you didn’t believe me.


The bottoms are sawed off waffle cones to make them extra tiny and the cherries are peanut M&M’s.


The best part about these cake pops is that you don’t have to be good at dipping. No need to try to get the coating smooth. The drips make them look better.

And if you really can’t get the dipping down, then you can try something like this. Dip the cake ball and place it on wax paper allowing the coating to pool at the bottom and then stick the cone on top at an angle. Add a little spoonful of coating over to the side and some sprinkles and you’ve just made a happy accident… on purpose.

The full instructions will be in the book, but here are the basic cake pop instructions.


If you’ve been reading the site for a while, you may remember first seeing them in March 2009 when I showed this one during The Pioneer Woman’s Cake Pop Party. I was just showing the concept to some of the guests so it was a little plain. But, a few minutes later, I turned around and PW’s girls had turned out these cuties and without any instruction. They are so sweet. The girls I mean. Well, the cake pops, too.


Their smiles still make me happy inside. I bet you’re smiling too, aren’t you. Double scoops with banana Twizzlers are hard to resist.

That’s one of the things I love about making cake pops. How much joy they bring to other people.

It’s fun to show an idea and then see what amazing things you guys all come up with.

Take a look at recently added Pop Star Aimee


She made these delicious looking ice cream cone cake pops… and I bet she probably didn’t even see any examples before she made them. And, they look fantastic. Great job Aimee!

The Pop Star section is growing and I still have lots of pops waiting in my inbox to be added. Lots of them. Be patient if you’ve already sent something in. I’m working my way through them all.

Now, can you help me out with something…

See these?


I recently visited General Mills and their test kitchens for a fun project (more about that in a few weeks). Anyway, they had these little guys in their stash of sweet stuff. Unfortunately, the packaging was long gone. Anyone know where to find these mini cones or their maker? They’re the perfect size for ice cream cone cake pops. For realz!

I have to make these immediately. How are you so endlessly creative?!?!

saw these on amazon link to might be the manufacturer you’re looking for?

Emily H. said...

Wow! Those are AMAZING! Quite possibly my favorite cake pops to date. I simply must try these, though the “accident” ones are more my style. ;)

July 19, 2010 12:35 AM
TracyBzz said...

I love that you don’t have to be neat with the icing on these ones! I used to buy the mini cones all the time when my girls were little and couldn’t eat a whole cone (I’m in Canada and don’t know if they make them anymore, never checked).

July 19, 2010 12:36 AM
Amy said...

I bought some flat bottom minis at… Walmart, of course:). Box is the same as big cones, just has 60 cones in one box. Called JOY kids cones. Happy hunting!!

What about packaged in-store items? Anyone?

No idea about the mini cones but these are just so cute! I too think the accident one is a scream!

July 19, 2010 01:04 AM
Lisa Kuebler said...

Love these!

I’ve bought the mini cones in the Tucker/Lilburn area. We had them for my son’s 1st birthday party (he’s 3 now). I think they were right there with the other cones in either Kroger or Publix. Hope this helps!

July 19, 2010 01:08 AM
Amy @ Living Locurto said...

I love how easy and super cute these are! Probably my favorite cake pops yet. Great job and I can’t wait to make some!

July 19, 2010 01:09 AM
Melita F said...

This is just an idea because I can’t see exactly what size these cones are but it might be worth calling them to see what they actually have.

RedPanda said...

I don’t know about mini cones in that shape, but I have bought Joy Cones Kids’ Cones, which are cute little cake cones. I can’t tell you which store I bought them at, but it was definitely one of the big chain stores, either Target, Ralphs/Kroger, or Vons/Safeway. Here’s the website for Joy:

Ashley said...

I’d check Keebler! Sometimes they have the mini cones. Also JOY brand may have them. They come in a red box we normally find them at Walmart or a store here called Martin’s that may be down where you are =] (

July 19, 2010 01:24 AM
Allison said...

They are adorable! For anyone in the UK, there is a chain of stores called Oil and Vinegar that sells tiny cones (aka cornets).

July 19, 2010 01:29 AM
Karen said...

Definitely have the small cake cones, but haven’t seen the sugar cones in mini yet. I love the cone that “hit the table” These will be a must for the class as a treat for back to school.
Can’t wait for the book!

Love these! And I just saw some ice cream cone wrappers at Michael’s today–surely easy enough to duplicate. Another sweet snack added to my list for my daughter’s 3rd birthday. Thanks for sharing all of your brilliant ideas!

BTW, I almost always check Amazon for obscure products and almost always find them.

Here you go…

They have a cute serving tray for them too!

I live in Canada and those “mini cones” are sold at Real Canadian Superstore (Huge Grocery store chain up here) I have a box in my cupboard! They are “no name” brand produced by a company out of Montreal called Loblaws, inc. contact phone number is 1-888-495-5111

Hope that is helpful:)

Oh!! You made them !!! I see that finally you didn’t find the tiny cones and you had to break some standard ones, as I did. Ther must be a better way. Maybe making the cones ourlselves.

Mmmmmmmmmmm. I want some of these for breakfast.

Ahw, my mom used to make these when I turned 2 and 3 to hand out at preschool! She would take some ice cream cones, put coloured puffed rice inside and one large pink marshmellow on top! The other kids and I loved them.

I second the joy kids cones. They are the perfect size and flat bottom, so easier drying. We buy them at our supermarket, the JOY website has a list of all their retail locations.

Oh so sweet, I think I can eat about three of them. Such a great idea. You’ve done it again Bakerella. Can’t wait to try these. Paulette

Lisa said...

Bruster’s Ice Cream has them – just give them a call, I am sure your local one would be happy to tell you where they get them. The one at Hamilton Mill (324/124) has always been more than helpful for me.

Here’s the Joy mini cone (flat bottom) item #:Joy 60count Kids Cone® (72092 02460) — found on their website.

You can get those mini cones here in Canada at Loblaws. In fact they are part of their No Name products and my daughter and I have been using them for years using marshmallows dipped in candy melts with round sprinkles on top. Now we can use cake pops too!!!!

I have a sort of dumb question: what are candy melts? Im not sure Ive heard of those at my country (Argentina). Is there something to replace it?

Everything looks so yummy I cant wait to try and make some! :)

Thank you so much for posting my picture of ice cream cone cake pops! I’m so flattered! You provide me with so much inspiration each and every day.

I’ve also gotten the small ones at Walmart before, but HAVE noticed they don’t always have them. Same brand as the regular size–Joy?
So cute and perfect less-mess (Is anything less mess with kids?) ;)

I’m going to make these for my daughter’s karate party on Saturday. The kids will love them!

Publix (grocery chain in the south) has the packaged mini cones, located in their freezer section. I spotted them at a grand opening, they were sampling ice cream with them. Just adorable! has bulk packs of the mini cones, but read the reviews…buyer beware.

These are one of my fave Bakerella creations so far! Perfect for the beginner cake pop maker (ahem, raises hand now) and perfect for summer!

These are mini cones… the kind ice cream places use for samples and baby cones. You can buy a box of them at some costco’s and other grocery stores.

My oldest son is 34 1/2 and I have made these cones since his second or third birthday. Another twist is with gingerbread, very moist and the kids decorate with buttons (candies like gumdrops and cinnamon dots, etc.) Thanks for reminding us.
I have had trouble getting into the cupcake theme but love your pops!

kids cones at – they are flat bottomed cones though – I plan to make some that look like “soft-serve” ice cream – perhaps using a piping bag to add cake pop “dough” – dipping then decorating – will send a pic :)
