It’s almost Valentine’s Day and I couldn’t resist making some sweet puns. I mean what would the day even be without them.
These are vanilla cupcakes topped with buttercream ice cream and come complete with custom wrappers for the occasion.
I barely squeaked these treats out before the 14th, but I hope you enjoy looking at them even if you won’t have time to make them. Just know you’re ahead of the game on ideas for next year.
I made vanilla cupcakes, but feel free to make your favorite flavor. This post is really all about the wrappers.
Place baked cupcakes with liners (or go ahead and unwrap them) in a small ice cream cup – 4 oz is the size you should look for. I know because I now have a ton of larger sizes that I ordered by mistake.
Here are the ones I ordered that finally worked.
Note: I tried baking directly in the ice cream cups, but they had a coated surface that started to bubble up slightly in the oven. I didn’t like that or the fact that you could not easily remove the cupcake.
Next, scoop buttercream frosting on top with a large 2-1/2 inch scoop. Make sure there is more than the scoop will hold so it overflows the edge of the scoop when you release it on top of the cupcake.
Look how something so simple as a big scoop of frosting looks totally like ice cream. And these are BIG scoops – Not your everyday ratio of frosting to cupcake, but it’s a special occasion, so I say go for it.
You can mix sprinkles or chopped chocolate into tinted buttercream to give the illusion of different flavors. You can even place several colors together and scoop for a multi-color effect. So many possibilities.
Ice Cream Cup Wrappers! I made a few designs for you to use. Just download one of the pdfs below. It’s an 11X17 file, so if you don’t have access to a larger format tabloid printer, you can download the file and take it to a Kinko’s. I also made two versions for you because I found slight differences in small ice cream cups from different vendors. Basically, the angle of the side of the cup will dictate the arc of the wrapper. So below are two versions that will hopefully help you.
Download Option 1 – for wrappers with a straighter side view
Download Option 2 – for cups with a more angled side view
Just print them out at 100%. Do not reduce the page size to fit your printer. Then, cut out the wrappers and tape them to the cup.
So cute, I could scream.
The tiny spoons I’ve had for a while but you can search mini tasting spoons on amazon for some that are similar.
This one might be my favorite. I love all the sprinkles and the little ice cream guy is modeled after a vintage graphic I found online.
You know I had to make a chocolate one. Always chocolate. : )
What are some other ice cream puns that would be fun?
The best part about these is that they don’t melt. Except your heart. Hehe.

Hope you enjoy. Hugs and Happy Valentine’s Day!
