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!

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

  2. 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. ;)

  3. 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).

  4. 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!!

  5. These, I love. Fabulous again! Hope you’re doing well! ;)

  6. love. love. love these.

  7. These are just so, so cute, and I love that you can make them fun without being careful! I can’t wait to make these!

  8. I just luuuurve the “happy accident” ice cream cone. Whoops! ;)

  9. http://www.yohay.com

    they are a wholesale baker in NY that make mini cake cones..pointy AND flat bottom

  10. these are very cute. Perfect for an ice cream themed party

  11. Yay for Yohay! Thanks Debbi


    What about packaged in-store items? Anyone?

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

  13. 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!

  14. 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!

  15. 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.


  16. 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:

  17. 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 =] (www.martinsfoods.com)

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

  19. 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!

  20. absolutely cuuuute!

  21. A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!!! You always make everything look perfect!

  22. 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!

  23. 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!

  24. 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:)


  25. Holy adorable! These are so stinkin cute!! Can’t wait to make ’em!! How in the world do you come up with this stuff?!

  26. http://www.yohay.com/FoodService.aspx for the mini-cones referenced in the amazon.com link above.

  27. Oh.my.gosh.
    That’s all I have to say really – I run out of vocabulary each time I see one of your creations.

  28. Love these! They are so cute :)

  29. Love these! So cute :)

  30. love these! very cute :)

  31. Love, love, love these!

  32. Not sure if you have a Walmart but they carry these little ice cream cones of the size of my thumb, so cute. I buy these for my daughter. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/images/B000H2265I/ref=dp_image_0?ie=UTF8&n=16310101&s=grocery

  33. OMG!!! These are sooo flippin’ adorable!!!!
    LOVE IT!!!

  34. I love these, they are so cute !!!

  35. beautiful.. i have to stop my sweet cravings, but this is just so tempting.. haha..

  36. 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.

  37. Oh dear me! These are the cutest yummiest treats ever!

  38. 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.

  39. I LOOOOVE these!!! You are just soo talented

  40. I’d love to find those cones! These are SO adorable!

  41. Bakerella you are a true inspiration! I absolutely love your creations! I had my first attempt at cake pops last week and they turned out great, everyone love love LOVED them – i’m making the Elmo pops this week to accompany an Elmo cake i’m making for a friend, looking forward to giving them a go! Can’t wait for your book to be available over here in the UK. x

  42. I can’t wait to make these! And am getting anxious for your book! We’re getting closer!

  43. 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.

  44. 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

  45. I’m in New Brunswick Canada, and we have them at the Atlantic Superstore. I’m definitly going to have to pick a box up and make some of these now!

  46. These are AWESOME!!! Must try…

  47. OMG! My daughter is 7 and would LOVE to make these!!

  48. Bakerella…you never cease to amaze me. These are SO adorable…LOVE the mini size and I’m going to HAVE to try these! Thanks for you ongoing inspiration! Hugs!!

  49. These are just beyond! Can’t handle the cuteness. Honestly. I can’t.

  50. Im from Montreal, Quebec, canada… all the grocery stores have thoses cones! I have some green, yellow and pink ones! I can ship you a batch if you really want! Contact me!

  51. 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.

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

  53. I get those cones at my local grocery shop. I live in Montreal, QC, I could ship you some if you can’t find any.

  54. Hi Bakerella! Those are super adorable!!! The first site that came up in my search for the cones was:http://www.fafh.com/resources/Cone_Flash_Cards.pdf And there they were! That was easy! Next assignment? haha!

  55. There are so adorable!! I”m going to Walmart today to try and find the cones so that I can make them for my granddaughter’s 6th birthday next week – thanks for such great ideas. I can’t wait for your book to be published.

  56. OMG! Those cake pops looks really good!

  57. 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!!!!

  58. Hi Bakerella,
    i’m in love with your site
    each recepie is better than the other, if you could please help me, I’m brazillian and I was reading one of your recepies http://www.bakerella.com/make-your-cupcakes-pop/
    and I really wanted to do it for a birthday party but here we don’t usually use crem cheese, I was wondering if there is anything I can use to replace the cream cheese
    thank you very much and congratulations for the site

  59. this might be my favorite cake pop idea yet…it’s so versatile, perfect for every time of year, and ADORABLE!

  60. Perfect! Perfect! I love all your creations—can’t wait for the book—but these and the hamburger/French fries are my favorites.

  61. amazon.com

  62. You are for realz the best. I love these! We used to pour batter in full size cones as kids and bake and frost them but these are fantas-teesh. As is everything you do : D !

  63. As usual – Amazing!!! These are so cute! I can’t wait to make some for my kids… :)

  64. Those look like a seriously fun project for me and my almost-three-year-old! :D

  65. Making your cakepops is my FAVORITE thing to do. And everyone I feed them to loves them too!

    Congratulations on your book! All of your success is so richly deserved! I just love everything about you!

    Best wishes,


  66. Here in Oz they are made by Altimate foods – http://www.altimatefoods.com.au there may be a link to a US distributor.

  67. Bakerella – they have the flat ones either at Publix or Kroger. Can’t remember which but I bought them recently to make cupcakes baked in cones!

  68. You are so incredibly creative and talented! Each pop seems to get more awesome! I agree with other comments–you deserve all of the success in the world!!!

  69. I’ve seen the tiny cones at Kroger. These cake pops are super cute!!

  70. 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! :)

  71. 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’m having a ball making all sorts of different cake pops and providing my family and friends with all sorts of cute treats…and we owe it all to you, Bakerella! :)

  72. Well, these are mini flatbottom ones but you can get them at walmart that they are cute!!

    Joy kids cones: http://tinyurl.com/36pjcfz

    see?: http://tinyurl.com/3yjn7uf


  73. 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?) ;)

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

  75. 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!

    Amazon.com has bulk packs of the mini cones, but read the reviews…buyer beware.

  76. 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!

  77. 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.

  78. I don’t know about the specific little cones you have pictured but I use these http://www.amazon.com/Joy-Kids-Cones-60-Count-Boxes/dp/B000H2265I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=grocery&qid=1279547773&sr=8-1

    You can get them at Wal-Mart.

  79. 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!

  80. Here’s a site that offers them in different colors!! And there’s a couple variations to choose from!


  81. Someone may already have lead you here…but found these.

  82. Well, those are too adorable! I had forgotten about that post at PW. I remembered you going, but forgotten what you made there. How fun!

    You are too creative!

  83. How adorable and delicious! Well done : )

  84. You are right…they do look like real cones, delicious looking too :)

  85. What a great idea. So cute.

  86. AHHHHHHH!!!!!!! I almost screamed out loud at the cuteness. You’re AMAZING!


  87. Hi,

    These are so fun. I am always looking for something fun and different and your cake pops and other sweet goodies always deliver. I did find a wholesaler online for the mini cones. The quantities are large but they do make them in a variety of colors.


  88. These are adorable! Perfect to serve at birthday parties.

  89. kids cones at JOYCone.com – 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 :)

  90. LOVE these. Absolutely LOVE them!!!!!!! I can’t wait to get my hands on your book! I think these are my favorite yet. I am doing a pink sweets party for my daughter’s 4th birthday…I was going to do with good ole’ cake balls, but THESE are a MUST! Thank you for sharing!

  91. these could be my new favs-SO super cute!

  92. O.M.G. Seriously. SERIOUSLY! That accident one is beyond cute! I absolutely love it (even more than the proper looking cones!)

  93. You are awesome!!!I’m helping my sister do her daughter’s first birthday and the theme is ice cream…I’ve been looking and looking for ideas for party favors and these are perfect!!!!!!thanks:)


  95. These are so adorable! Your ideas are so creative, they really get me thinking about all the cute different ways to do cake balls :)

  96. Oh those are too cute!! You might try your local ice cream shop..if they have sample or kiddie cones (ours has both) they might be willing to sell you some or at least let you know where you can purchase them.
