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 am responding to your question without reading the many posts before mine. I have seem in the grocery store kids size cones. They are small almost like a sample size cone. They are sugar cones, but I think would work just as well They come in a box and because they are samll would hold a cake ball perfectly.

just had to say, I couldn’t find those mini cones anywhere- but finally remembered that’s what they sell at McDonalds when you buy the kid’s ice cream cone for 25 cents. They looked at me funny in the drive through, but sold me 24 cones for $1.00!

Where I live, In Malaysia, you can easily find mini wafer cones at local supermarkets for less than $1 for 20! And they’re the perfect size! Except that they go stale very easily because it’s very humid here :/

thank you for this idea! It’s my bday in a week and I’m searching for some type of cake pop to make for myself. This seems perfect for a cake pop newbi while still being able to show off my artsy skills. The real point- to make the hubby cake pops for his bday in 2 months. Practice never looked so good!!
