Rainbow Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

This recipie was featured in our May newsletter and I have had so much great feedback I decided that I should share it with those of you that haven't yet signed up! (Generous of me isn't it??!)

It is a super easy effect - sure to be a hit at your next event!


Using a basic vanilla cupcake recipe (packet or from scratch - I'm not one to judge!), divide the batter evenly into separate bowls for each colour (up to 6 colours).

  • Use gel colours to add deep colour to each bowl making sure to mix the batter well.

HINT: You can grab gel food colouring in the cake decorating section of your local supermarket - I prefer gel to the liquid ones as they can tend to make the batter too runny.

  • Transfer the coloured batter into piping bags (TIP: If you don't have piping bags, cut the tip of the bottom of a zip-lock bag and fill with batter)

  • Line up your ice-cream cones onto a tray and gently fill each cone with a thin layer of each coloured batter (be careful not to disturb each layer of colour).

  • Bake for 18-20 mins and remove from oven to cool.

  • While they are cooling down, make a basic royal icing recipe

  • Once cupcakes are cooled, dip the cupcakes into the icing and sprinkle with 100's and 1000's and top with red smarties before the icing dries (TIP: Royal icing dries very quickly so you will need to work fast!)

Peace, Love & Cupcakes,
