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!

Michelle said...

I have seen those mini ones around my neck of the woods. Let me do some checking for you and i’ll email if I am successful.

I already preordered the book — can’t wait!

Target sells a mini-cone waffle iron. Can’t beat the freshness of making your own! There is also for retailers near you. They have the flat-bottom mini cones. Many other already mentioned the listings on Amazon. Good luck and the mini-cones are deliciously adorable!

clazek said...

go to, they have the plain cake cone (it’s flat on the bottom). the website says the measure 1.75 in and they give you a list where they sell them :)

I found mini-cones at Target– they aren’t the pointy cones, just the traditional flat bottomed ones. I am happy to mail some to you!

I don’t know about the minicones, but they would have been perfect for the part I held for National Ice Cream Day! Though little ‘gelatin shooter’ cups and tiny spoons worked pretty well too.

That reminds me of growing up and getting a clown cone at Baskin Robbins for my birthday!

Never seen those before, but I’ve seen square bottom ones at the food buffet chain, Sweet Tomato’s.

Wow, these are great! I can’t wait to get the book!

I know you can get those little cones in Canada, they are just with the regular cones. I will check and see who makes them next time I go to the store!

July 19, 2010 03:59 PM
Jeanie Barbour said...


I don’t know if anyone responded about the cones (because I didn’t read all of the comments), but if you check the JOY website, they’ll give you a list of retailers that sell the kid’s cones. I just bought mine today at Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh – the flat bottom type. THANKS for this AWESOME cakeball idea. My kids are going to LOVE these!!!!!

Jenny said...

Hi! Ok so I have made cake balls and cake pops twice now and I have one big burning question, how do you get the coating so smooth? I just can’t figure it out! I did make some super cute pops for a baby shower … even though they weren’t terribly smooth. :) Love your blog!

July 19, 2010 04:26 PM

The list at Joy says I can get them at my local grocery store (Pick ‘n Save here in MKE). If you want, I can pick some up for you. I could deliver more if your book tour stops in MKE and I can get my preordered book signed!! Let me know!

There are some similar ones here but a very large quantity must be ordered. You would be very busy making ice cream cones.

These are amazing!!! The color + sprinkles reminds me of the iconic Simpsons donuts.

Sue Turner said...

I found myself grinning at the sight of the ice cream cone cake pop. They’re adorable! So fun, and what a cute display at a party.

Now if I knew someone who loved ice cream AND cake, I’d be set…..

July 20, 2010 12:53 AM
Cath said...

Oh they are so cute and I love that the messy dipping will only add to the design of the melting ‘icecream’ : )

These are my favorite cake pops – and I think that I can actually make them! I am going to try this weekend – Yay!!!

Thank you for all your fabulous ideas!

Clyde said...

The “pointy end” ice-cream cone?… I have no idea BUt my husband went to Wal-Mart to get some of the “flat end” ones (regular, normal size) and he came back with the mini, cute as a button ones (for one bite-size scoop of icre cream). You might want to try those out, your cake pops will look so good and cute too! (they’re located right next to the regular size ice cream cones)

OMG! They look so cute, it hurts to eat them but they seem delicious. I’d want one to eat and one to just look at.

Amy said...

I made these. I have to say I thought the peanut mms were too big. So I used red hots. I think they turned out fabulous. My favorite combination was mint chocolate chip “ice cream” with ” cherry ” on top. I did mini mms too. These were a great hit, and easy for my daughter to help with too.

shelly (cookies and cups) said...

Love these! Too funny, I posted yesterday with some ice cream cone cupcakes, plus a cool giveaway with cone pans for making cupcakes out of them so they don’t topple over! It’s really the coolest and would work perfect for the cone pops too!

I love this! I tried baking cupcakes in ice cream cones and the cones tasted like rubbish after baking! Cute, but not fresh tasting. This is such a fabulous idea! Thanks, Bakerella!

not sure if your question has been answered, I assume it has, but our grocery store (Kroger) sells boxes of
“Kids Mini Cones” by Disney magic. They are regular cones (not sugar cones) but the perfect size for cake pops. I’ve used them many times, instead of shaving down a cone, these are perfect!! Good luck!

Hi Bakerella,

I just love your creative baking ideas. Just wanted to let you know that you have a big fan in the Netherlands! I have made your cupcake bites a few times now and i get an amazing response every time.
I can’t wait for your book to come out so i can make these adorable ice cream cake pops, hope it comes out in the Netherlands as well!

Stupid question….do you dip the cake ball first then place it on the cone or dip 1/2 a cake ball, “glue” it to the bottom of the cone, then dip again? (I have preordered the book…but want to make them before the book comes out as a last day of summer vacation treat for the kids and their new teachers.) Thanks!

Seriously?!?!?! I luv this. I made something similar to this about 16 years ago for my daughters pre-school class. I simply poured the cake batter in the cones and baked. The kids loved it. I will have to try this version!!

July 22, 2010 05:31 PM
Michelle said...

the mini cones are Joy sugar cones. You can buy the ones with pointy ends on it but the cup-styles are available at some stores. Go to the Joy cones website and they list some stores that carry them.

Saw these for the first time today and couldn’t get over how incredible cute they are!!! So, off to Walmart I went and Ah-ha…I found the mini cones! Hehe! So excited! BTW…I’m in Texas.

I love making your cupcake pops and think you are pretty much amazing! These “ice cream cones” just add to your amazingness. :) I was wondering what you put them on when they are drying. (the regular cones not the “accident” cones.)

July 23, 2010 05:37 PM
Kisa said...

OH MY!! Whatever you do.. DO NOT click the link that is tied to the comment for comment 182!!
More so not with children around!

Also, these are cute.. I must go find small cones and attempt these someday. :D

rebecca said...

I just made a midnight trip to Target to do last minute grocery shopping for my sons 2nd birthday party. I got a box of ‘kid size’ sugar cones for ice cream. They were $1.67 for 60 cones and when I got home and opened the box they were small enough to fit in the palm of my hand! Way too small for ice cream but would be adorable as cupcake pops… which is what I will now use them for!
Only I don’t have any cream cheese icing on hand. I wonder if real cream cheese would work, if I cut down the proportions so it’s not too greasy. Hm… we’ll see!

I’ve bought these many times for tiny cones for my grandsons. I think Keebler makes them, but I could be wrong, as I don’t have the box in front of me. But they are out there.
