Original recipe makes 24 cupcakes Change Servings

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Stir cake mix, water, eggs, and vegetable oil together in a bowl until moistened; beat the batter with an electric mixer set on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  3. Divide cake batter into 4 equal portions in separate bowls. Tint each bowl a different color, stirring in red, green, yellow, and blue food coloring to reach desired shade.
  4. Set ice cream cones upright in 24 muffin cups.
  5. Spoon about 1 1/2 tablespoons of each colored batter into cones, leaving about 1 inch of room from the top.
  6. Carefully transfer cones to the preheated oven and bake until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a filled cone comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.
  7. Cool cupcakes thoroughly before decorating, about 1 hour.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I've made these cones on numerous occasions - birthdays, holidays etc... they are a BIG hit with kids and adults. I adjust the cake colors for the occasion I am baking for (example: Christmas - red/green; Memorial Day, red/white/blue).
  • If making for a bunch of kids, I like to place cones upside down in cupcake papers (looks like a melted ice cream cone).
