Easy Melting Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes Recipe

Melted ice Cream Cones are just a fact in summer. Occasionally, it is so hot that they melt before you can get that cold dairy goodness in your mouth.

What is the worst thing to happen? When part of that ice cream actually falls off your cone! Or how about when you actually drop your ice cream cone and it lands upside down, on the ground.

I won’t lie, this is definitely me when I drop my ice cream…..

(sigh)

That is why I have an easy melting ice cream cone cupcakes recipe. Let’s turn that unhappy possibility into a whimsical treat that reminds us that life may be full of surprises, but we can still enjoy it.

How do you store Melting Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes?

The best way to usually store your finished creations? Room Temperature. Considering the buttercream frosting, they should be fine for five to six days. You can learn more about that in our article How To Frost A Cupcake.

Just like any of our cupcake recipes, you can make the cupcake bases in advance. I actually have some red, white, and blue cupcakes in my freezer right now for July 4th.

Generally, the rule of thumb is that if you plan to frost and enjoy them within a couple of days you should be storing your cupcakes at room temperature. If you do not plan to frost or enjoy them within a couple of days then it’s best to freeze them.

You can learn more about Batch Baking During the Winter Months in my other post if you want to, but batch baking and freezing are some of my trade secrets. Rarely would I pop them in the fridge – the constantly circulating air dries them out too much.

Melting ice cream cone cupcakes how to transport

Some people have a tough time figuring this out logistically. I personally think it is a lot easier than trying to transport my ice cream cone cupcakes.

These are a cupcake with funky toppings – so they SHOULD fit even in the generic cupcake carriers that your local dollar store sells.

That makes them VERY easy to transport.

Melting ice cream cone cupcakes with cake mix? Yes, these start with a boxed cake mix. This recipe is intended to be made with the kids and you teach them reading skills, measuring (math) skills, and how to follow instructions in a step-by-step manner.

If you don’t want to use a boxed cake mix, feel free to use one or two of our recipes to make the cupcake bases: Best Yellow Cupcake Recipe from Scratch or Best Chocolate Cupcake Recipe, or Strawberry Vanilla Cupcakes Recipe.

Why not make all three and mix it up a bit?

What is Neopolitan Ice Cream?

Neapolitan ice cream consists of three layers, each of a different color and flavor (chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla), molded into a block and cut into slices. That is the inspiration for these melted ice cream cone cupcakes – you will see the three same flavors of frosting used: chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla.

Not only does it make for a great color combination when you are serving them, it makes it easier to serve a crowd where a few picky people are hiding.

Get this – my dad doesn’t like chocolate. At. All.

Isn’t that twisted? Even birthday cakes have to be something like angel food cake.

Coffee cake cupcakes easy

History of coffee cake

Coffee cake is a type of sweet yeast bread that originated in Europe, particularly Hungary. Some people beg to differ and say Germany, or Austria specifically. With its dense and moist texture, it can be eaten as an alternative to dessert or served for breakfast with coffee.

The dough contains baking powder and/or baking soda (to provide the typical cakes’ lightness) butter and eggs which give the crumb softness, sweetness, and richness.

Other ingredients usually include sugar, vanilla extract (though sometimes replaced by cinnamon), lemon zest, or citron peel garnish; raisins are often used once they have been soaked in water as well additional flavorings like rum-soaked cherries.

coffee cake cupcakes

It is called coffee cake as it is served WITH coffee – not that it usually contains coffee. While it MAY contain coffee – that isn’t very common in any coffee cake recipe.

My Coffee Cake Recipe

When we had our restaurant, we whipped up a coffee cake that had a streusel topping and a cinnamon swirl inside. It was basically a yellow cake – that helped make it a bit sweeter.

These cupcakes are a fresh take on that treat that we always sold out of.

Coffee cake cupcakes with cake mix

Yes, these cupcakes are based on a boxed cake mix. If you want to make your yellow cupcake bases from scratch – feel free to use our recipe: Best Yellow Cupcake Recipe from Scratch.

Just remember, you need to pop a layer of the cinnamon swirl crumb mix in the middle of them – you can see more below on how to do that.

How do you store Coffee Cake Cupcakes?

Here is the thing – with the more futzy designs, I like to make them in advance of an event or get-together. The bases of these can be made WEEKS in advance and popped into your freezer.

When you are ready to finish them off, you take out the night before and leave at room temperature to thaw out.

The best way to usually store your finished creations? Room Temperature.

Granted, these are so freaking delicious that they aren’t going to be safe that long. You can learn more about that in our article How To Frost A Cupcake.

Cinnamon Coffee cake cupcakes

Why is cinnamon so great? Why is it so popular in coffee cake recipes?

Cinnamon is a popular ingredient not only because of its flavor but also because it has been shown to help regulate blood sugar.

Add that to the health benefits of a cuppa in the morning and you are starting your day of well.

If it makes you feel any better, you can simply refer to these as coffee cake muffins.

How to Make the Best S’mores Cupcakes

What makes perfect S’mores cupcakes? The perfect S’mores Cupcake starts with a moist chocolate cake, iced with fluffy marshmallow frosting. Finally, there comes a layer of crushed graham crackers on top!

S’mores cupcakes with box cake mix

These s’mores cupcakes are easy to make and taste like that decadent campfire dessert without all the flame.

How to Make the Best S’mores Cupcakes

You have to know what S’mores are before you can turn them into a cupcake

History of s’mores

No one knows for sure who invented the s’more. However, the first published recipe for “some mores” was in a 1927 publication called Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts. Loretta Scott Crew, who made them for Girl Scouts by the campfire, is given credit for the recipe.

It is said that s’mores were originally created in 1922 at a campfire. A group of Girl Scouts made them for the first time and then brought S’mores back to their troop. There are different variations, but they have all been influenced by this recipe from an original one that was invented over 100 years ago!

Back then, it was called a graham cracker sandwich.

How did they get the name “S’mores”?

S’more is a contraction of the phrase “some more”. It is said that both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts would always ask for some more – and eventually, it stuck. By 1938 this tasty treat was officially called s’mores in the camping guides for kids.

By 1957 even Betty Crocker was in on the recipe.

S'mores Cupcakes

How to make s’mores

S’mores are traditionally cooked over a campfire, although they can also be made at home over the flame of a wood-burning fireplace, in an oven, over a stove’s flame, in a microwave, or with a s’mores-making kit.

Honestly, I hate microwaved marshmallows – I don’t think they really get “toasted” they just frow and get gooey. They will puff up when heated in the microwave and then deflate back down as they melt and cool…and make a sticky mess.

S’mores have influenced a lot of treats

Everything from Kellogg’s Pop-Tarts to Girl Scout Cookies – you can find a variation of the graham cracker, marshmallow, and chocolate bar treat.

These S’mores cupcakes are our own take on it – and yes, we incorporate all three ingredients to make a delightful delicacy.

S'mores Cupcakes

How do you store S’mores Cupcakes?

Here is the thing – with the more futzy designs, I like to make them in advance of an event or get-together. The best way to usually store your finished creations? Room Temperature.

Granted, with a Marshmallow topping, they aren’t going to be safe that long at room temperature. This is the ONE exception I make to sticking them in the fridge – normally I say “no” to the fridge, but this is a rare exception. You can learn more about that in our article How To Frost A Cupcake.

S’mores cupcakes nutrition facts?

Puh-Leeze. People actually search this and it cracks me up. What kind of nutrition do you actually expect to get from cupcakes? Fiber? Protein?

Let’s face it – cupcakes are here to help provide us with those 3 simple things we all crave: salt, sugar, and fat.

That is why they are so freaking delicious.

DIY S’mores cupcakes

These s’mores cupcakes with graham cracker crumb topping are basically just gooey chocolate S’more cupcakes. We make the marshmallow frosting from scratch and THAT is what makes all of the difference in this recipe.

The Most Amazing Chocolate Oreo Cupcake Recipe

Chocolate Oreo Cupcake! I know we recently covered PMS Cupcakes – but what is more legendary than a plate of Oreo cookies with a glass of milk?

The Most Amazing Chocolate Oreo Cupcake Recipe article cover image with oreo cupcakes on it

Oreos are a part of childhood and have created many different schools of thought in regards to eating them. There are those who twist the Oreos apart and lick out the frosting. Then there are the people who are the dunkers – always dipping that crunchy treat into a frosty glass of milk.

There is no shortage of love for Oreos – people are coming up with fun ideas all the time to use them in a different way! Just look at this 2-ingredient mug cake that you whip up with Oreos and your microwave:

EASY 2 INGREDIENT OREO MUG CAKE ♡

No matter how you look at it – you will soon have a new way to love your Oreos – as a topper to this amazing chocolate Oreo cupcake recipe – down to the crushed Oreos in the frosting!

There are even recipes out there to make FRIED Oreos! I know – SHUT. THE. FRONT. DOOR.

HOW TO MAKE FRIED OREOS!!! THE EASIEST WAY!

The Most Amazing Chocolate Oreo Cupcake Recipe

We play off the Oreo flavors with this recipe, use Oreos in the frosting as well as topping that chocolate cupcake goodness with a fresh cookie.

Chocolate Oreo Cupcake and milk

Did you know there is a scientific reason that Oreos go well with milk? Though your tongue can pick up the full-bodied taste of the cookie eventually, the milk quickens this process and makes sure your tongue receives an even cookie coating. Without it, the cookie may seem a little more gritty. Milk also helps mellow out the vigor of the sweet cookie flavor.

Isn’t that awesome news for the Dairy Council? I see a joint promotion with Nabisco on the horizon.

Actually, Samuel J. Porcello was an American food scientist who worked at Nabisco for 34 years. He was the genius that paired the two together!

Chocolate Oreo Cupcake easy recipe

I do start this recipe out with a recipe for chocolate cupcakes from scratch. I personally think it is easier than dressing up a boxed cake mix and a lot less expensive when you have all the ingredients on hand.

It IS possible to make your OWN “boxed” mixes by taking the first seven ingredients and measuring them into a zippy bag. Write the other four ingredients on the outside of the bag in a sharpie and you are ready to rock the next time you want chocolate cupcakes!

Chocolate Oreo Cupcake with Oreo on the bottom

OK – a lot of people search for this and I played around with it. The problem with having an Oreo on the bottom of these cupcakes is the fact that it is dry. It draws the moisture from the cupcake batter during baking and gets soggy – and the longer it sets before you get around to eating it?

The soggier and soggier it gets to the point that it is a yucky mess in the bottom of your cupcakey goodness.

That is why I settled with decorating the TOP of the chocolate Oreo Cupcake with that legendary chocolate sandwich cookie – to preserve the integrity of the crunch!

You will need:

Chocolate Oreo cupcake recipe:

  • 1 C flour
  • ¼ C Hershey cocoa powder
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ C light brown sugar
  • ½ C sugar
  • ⅓ C Canola oil
  • ½ C buttermilk
  • 1 large egg 
  • 1 tsp Pure vanilla extract

For the Vanilla and Oreo frosting:

  • 2 C unsalted sweet cream butter, softened
  • 4 1/2 powdered sugar
  • 5 tbsp. heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup finely crushed Oreo crumbs
  • 1 small ice cream scooper
  • 1 mini flat angled spatula
  • 1 large piping bag with star tip 
  • 18 Oreo cookies for topping 

Directions: 

Chocolate cupcakes:

Preheat oven to 350 and line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners. Using a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Whisk in the sugar and brown sugar until combined. Whisk in the oil, buttermilk, egg and vanilla extract until combined .

Fill each one 3/4 of the way full. Bake in the oven for 21 minutes. Transfer the cupcakes to a wire rack to cool.

To make the Chocolate Oreo Cupcake frosting:

Using a standing mixer, beat the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and heavy whipping cream until all is combined, so the frosting is smooth and stiff with peaks.

Topping the cupcakes :

Using the ice cream scooper, scoop out some vanilla frosting and top it onto the cupcakes. Use the mini angled spatula to smooth out the frosting into a thick mound.

Repeat steps to the remaining cupcakes.

Using the frosting that you have left, beat in the crushed Oreo cookies and then scoop that frosting into the piping bag.

Pipe dollops on top of the vanilla frosting and then top with and Oreo cookie.

The Best Sweet & Salty PMS Cupcake Recipe

A PMS Cupcake? Yuppers! This blend of salty goodness along with chocolaty decadence calls to the week a month in every woman’s life where you crave BOTH.

The Best Sweet & Salty PMS Cupcake Recipe with a picture of brownie topped chocolate cupcakes crowned with pretzles

We used to make chocolate-dipped ruffled potato chips and call them PMS fantasies, always keeping a batch in the freezer – but these are SO much better at fulfilling that sweet and salty craving that hits every 4 weeks or so.

The Best Sweet & Salty PMS Cupcake Recipe

We worked hard on this delicate blend of both sweet chocolatey goodness and salty crispy crunchiness to create this gem and are beyond pleased at how it turned out. I have to tell you, the taste-testing was the worst part – but I suffered through it. Just for you …

Can you feel my sacrifice?

Does chocolate make PMS worse?

It is kind of a Catch-22. While a chocolate craving is pretty normal during this time, it isn’t really helpful for managing your actual PMS symptoms. Chocolate can elevate your prostaglandins level and you may experience more period cramping.

UGH – more cramps! They DO suggest you stick to DARKER chocolate and don’t overdo it – that is why these cupcakes are perfect: they help keep your chocolate consumption under portion control. Dark chocolate contains a ton of magnesium, which relaxes your muscles and eases aches to reduce the pain.

Who knew – right?

Why do we want salt during PMS?

Blame it on the hormones. A 2016 study suggests that changes in levels of hormones estrogen and progesterone cause cravings for high-carb and sweet foods before your period.

Now here is the thing about salt. Consuming lots of salt leads to water retention, which can result in bloating…So, your body hormones are leading you to crave a substance that is counter-productive to your actual physical needs.

Awesome.

Can PMS change your personality?

Here are my thoughts – if PMS symptoms include mood swings, irritability, anger, anxiety, tension, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and social withdrawal, etc – then it is OK to indulge in the cravings you have and placate all of those raging hormones.

Honestly, if it is thought that hormonal changes in the menstrual cycle (fluctuations in estrogen and progesterone levels) affect the mood of women and trigger negative emotions such as anger and irritability, who wants to deny themselves and end up like Lizzie Bordon?

The Murders That Haunt The Lizzie Borden House Video – the PMS murders!

Is PMS a legal defense?

I know that Lizzie got off but is it a real legal defense?

Premenstrual syndrome may be effective as an affirmative defense to a criminal charge if the defendant can show that (i) she was suffering from premenstrual syndrome at the time the crime was committed; and (ii) because of her condition, either that the criminal act was an involuntary act or that at the time of the criminal act she did not possess the mental state required by law for the commission of a crime.

Premenstrual syndrome has been successfully pleaded as a criminal defense in Great Britain but has not been tested in American criminal courts.

Huh. Who knew?

I’m not sure I want to test that though – so you better make sure to have this PMS Cupcake recipe on hand!

How do you store this PMS Cupcake Recipe?

Here is the thing – with the more futzy designs, I like to make them in advance of an event or get-together. The best way to usually store your finished creations? Room Temperature. Granted, they aren’t going to be around that long –a woman with serious PMS can take them out in two to three days… and if your family is “synched”? Stand Back.

You CAN make the bases in advance and freeze them. Let them come to room temperature when you are ready to decorate them.
