CAKE BAKED IN ICE CREAM CONES
The kids are going to love these Dirt And Worm Cake Cones! Not only are they fun and delicious but it is a great dessert in individual servings.
- You can use a white cake mix instead of yellow if needed. Alternatively, you could use a chocolate cake mix too.
- As with the cake mix, feel free to substitute a frosting flavor of your choice for the chocolate frosting if desired.
- Use sour or regular gummy worms.
- Cake can be colored to your preferred color.
- If you’re concerned that the ice cream cones won’t stay upright in the oven, wrap bunched/crinkled aluminum foil around the bases of the cones to help hold them in place.
- When filling your cones, try not to fill them much past the first ridge inside the cone, or else the batter may rise too high and overflow the tops of the cones while baking. ¼ cup of cake batter should be just about the perfect amount.
- If needed, use a popsicle stick or lollipop stick to poke and bevel holes into the tops of cupcake cones to hold one end of each gummy worm into the cupcakes. Do this after frosting and dipping the tops into the crushed cookies for best results.
MORE CREEPY FUN RECIPES:
- One box yellow cake mix
- 3 eggs
- ¼ cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup water
- Green Food Coloring
- 24 Cake Cones
- One Can Chocolate Frosting
- One package Oreo Cookies
- 48-72 Gummy Worms (2-3 worms per cupcake)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
- Place ice cream cones upright in the wells of two 12-well muffin pans and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the yellow cake mix, eggs, vegetable oil, and water until smooth.
- Add roughly ¼ to ½ teaspoon green gel food coloring (or 3-5 drops of liquid food coloring) to the batter and whisk until the food coloring is incorporated and the cake batter is green colored.
- Pour about ¼ cup of cake batter into the center of each ice cream cone and place the pan into the oven.
- Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the cake batter is completely set, and a cake tester or knife comes out clean when inserted into the center of a cupcake. Allow the cupcake cones to cool completely.
- While the cupcakes are cooling, discard the cream centers of the Oreo cookies. Place the chocolate Oreo wafers into a plastic baggie, seal bag and crush wafers with a rolling pin or your hands. Pour the crushed chocolate cookies into a shallow bowl or dish and set aside.
- When the cupcakes are completely cooled, frost generously with chocolate frosting, ensuring that the frosting is spread to the rim of each ice cream cone.
- Immediately after frosting each cupcake cone, turn it upside-down and dip it frosting-side down into the crushed Oreos.
- Turn the cones back to frosting-side up, top with gummy worms by pushing the worms down into the frosting.
