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!

What an adorable dessert! My daughter’s third birthday is quickly approaching, and this might be just the recipe for the festive occasion. Great idea.

Looks great and such beautiful pictures. So cute! This will be great for a kid’s party. Thanks for the inspiration.

Wendy in California said...

Bakerella, these are AbFAB! Think I’ll make these and pipe something sinful into the cone first, just to add a few more calories. Thanks for the great photos, too….not sure I can make the “mistake” cone, ’cause I usually eat all my mistakes.

Danielle said...

Hi Bakerella!!
Beautiful creations!!

Wondering how did you display the cones on the table, so they can stand – on Amies’ looks like a cardboard with little cuts. Is this how you do it? I want to do it for my sister in law’s baby shower :)

Thanks a lot & congrats!!

I buy “mini” cones at Walmart. They are called “kiddie” cones! They are like an inch and a half tall, and really cute.

Bruesters has mini sugar cones that would be perfect. no sawing needed.

My mom made these tonight! They’re going to be for a Baptism party we’re having.

You can see them here!

Amanda said...

I found mini sugar cones! They’re at this website: Just have to shoot them an e-mail to purchase them. They’re much stabler then wafer cones so I’m trusting these the most. :) The mini sugar flat top cones are about 2 inches so I recommend those. :)

They have those mini cones at my local grocery store (part of the Loblaws chain)…even in the no-name brand! They come in a package of 72 for about $3.

Joy brand makes mini cones and I got some at a Super Target two months ago. Bake On!

Pat-NY said...

The one reveiw they have is terrible. Says they come dumped in large platic bag dumped in one box. Many around tops sides etc. arrived broken— Shipping $15. At least read reveiw before buying here so your not disappointed.
I think I will try elsewhere

August 5, 2010 02:32 AM
Yohay said...

To be fair- we sell about 15-20 cases of mini cones a week on Amazon, and a lot more wholesale to caterers and ice cream shops. One bad review out of all that isn’t really a big indicator.

August 6, 2010 03:48 PM
Margot said...

Just a short note to let you know that I featured your ice cream pops as “This week featured article” on my side bar (a thumbnail and a link to your post). I hope you don’t mind.
I love all your creations! :)

I FINALLY FOUND THEM! had to go to Elgin Ill. to my favorite store . WOODMANS MARKET,they are also in Wis. They are “Dinky Dippers” , distributed by / Craigador Corp. 1 800 531 4933. They were only $2.50! Love that store.

August 12, 2010 09:16 AM
Monica said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!! They are perfect for my ice cream cone themed birthday party that I am throwing for my preschool class this year!!

And I have boughtthe mini cones at the grocery store here. Just in the cone section with the rest of the cones. I got mine at Safeway, if you have that there??!! Im from Canada!

You are amazing!

They can be brought on Amazon for $26.95 for a count of 220 or check out the company that make them Yohay Baking Co.

francesca said...

Hi, all these cake pops look amazing! But does anyone know if there is a possible alternative to candy melts? To be honest im not 100% sure what they are but i’m guessing they’re an american thing…*jealous* ^.^ Can you make them yourself? Because i just know that if i find them in France or england they will cost a fortune :( Thank youuuu!

My husband and I just recently became fans. We just made some for my great-nephews 2nd b-day. You are amazing and I am buying your book.

August 23, 2010 08:17 PM
Andrea@Yohay said...

@Francesca- Maybe you could melt white baking chocolate and throw in a little food coloring to make it pink? Usually when i do any kinds of coating or dipping I use regular baking chocolate in the double boiler and it works fine.

August 24, 2010 10:41 AM
Pat said...

you can get them at amazon 220 cones for $27.95 + $15 shipping.
I just ordered them!

I am in the middle of making these right now! Well, the cake is in the oven and all of my supplies are laid out! I am wondering if anyone has some ideas on what I could do with the othere half of the sawed off cone. I don’t want to waste them! And since I only bought a 12 pack of cones I will have TONS of extra cake and chocolate melts left over to make another fun creation! Just having trouble coming up with something…

i am wanting to make these for my daughter’s ice cream birthday party on saturday. i bought vanilla cake but i can’t find cream cheese frosting that is NOT whipped. will it be bad if i used ‘whipped’ cream cheese frosting?

I love your site! So inspiring for us “wannabe” Bakerellas!

I made cake pops for the first for Halloween, and they turned out great, but the lollipop sticks kept slipping out or poking thru the cake balls as I was dipping. Also are there any dipping techniques you could give?

You rock Bakerella!

I loved your idea on ice cream pops! I thought what a wonderful idea to make them at a baby shower and put pickles next to them….so that is what I did! check out my site and leave a comment please.

These cones are sold in Canada at Superstore (PC brand) in a yellow box. There are 72 cones in each box, and they are around $2.00. I made these for my son’s first birthday party and they were really cute!

Do not put the waffle cones in the refrigerator! They will be a soggy mess in as little as 12 hours.

Bakerella! i did these the other day for my little cousins 9th birthday party and he loved them! my boyfriend bought me your book and we love it also! :) i hope to send u a picture of my ice cream cake pops but i dont know how.

Monica said...

I loved making these. On thing I did was turn an egg carton upside down and poke holes in the bottoms (of where the eggs would sit) and it holds the cones just great! No need to buy anything special and I can recycle them when I am done. The next time I am making these, I just save the egg cartons again!

These are soooooo cute!! There is going to be a dessert auction at my church and I was wondering what to do, I have your book and I was looking through it and I saw these and well now I know what I’m doing for the dessert auction! And these are perfect for me because I have trouble when it comes to dipping……

I just discovered the cake pops and wow how much fun are they! I went a little over board and three classes were really lucky this Valentine’s day with the owls and cup cake pops.
I’m gonna be doing the cones for a party next week and the little cones I am able to get in our Local No Frills. So exciting! I’m also from Canada.

I get my mini cones from target..they are a brand called “jolly”, best part..they are the flat bottom kind, so easy to set on a cookie sheet to set after dipping…and so stinking cute..I have pics..

I work at Joy Cone and they have small pointed ones and small flat ones. They are not waffle though, they are regular cake cones. i am looking for different things to make using cones. I handle enough of them in a day, i might as well have some fun with them.

April 15, 2011 03:54 PM
Amanda said...

I made these for a family gathering today. They were ADORABLE. I’ll try to submit a photo! the report was that they were very “RICH”, so i am actually thinking of doing them again because of their cuteness…with brownies that are a little fudgey–that will allow me to eliminate the frosting to mix with it and hopefully be easier to indulge! :) Thanks so much for the idea….I’m stunned at how easy this project was!

I made these last night bakarella for a work bake-a-thon fundraiser, I had to use the double boiler technique to melt the candy melts & the mixture was way too thick what did I do wrong? I have your book & noticed your step by step photos look so much thinner & easier to coat the balls, I probably would have won if i didnt mess this part for next time please…

Hi Bakerella
How do you keep the cones from getting soggy? Does it have to be done the same day as the party or event? Do you have any suggestions on storage if it is made a couple days in advance?

I want to make these tomorrow for my friend’s baby shower, but I’m wondering how you get the cake ball to stay on the cone when you dip it into the chocolate? Anyone know? I haven’t started yet but I can foresee that being a problem.

Also, what method did you use for adding the dark chocolate on top?

I made the cupcake pops a couple weeks ago and they turned out amazing! Cutest!

June 9, 2011 12:23 PM

I think these cute little cake pops are fantastic for little parties and also maybey one day I could try making some myself!
