  • Prepare cake batter and bake in 24 paper-lined medium muffin cups as directed on package. Cool in pan 10 min. (Do not remove from pan.)
  • Stir boiling water into dry gelatin mixes in medium bowl at least 2 min. until completely dissolved. Pierce cupcakes with large fork or wooden skewer at 1/2-inch intervals. Spoon gelatin evenly over cupcakes. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • Remove cupcakes from pan. Spread each with 1 Tbsp. of the whipped topping. Place 1 ice cream cone, tip-end up, on top of each cupcake. Spread remaining whipped topping evenly over cones. Sprinkle with the colored sugar and sprinkles. Store in refrigerator.

How to Frost Cupcakes

Make sure cupcakes are completely cooled before frosting. A warm cake can cause the frosting to soften or melt.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comet cones can be found in most grocery stores near the ice cream toppings. Comet cones can be found in most grocery stores near the ice cream toppings. They are sugar cones. I haven't made this recipe, but in looking at it I wonder how well the cool whip would work on the cones. I'm sure they would get pretty soggy. I think when I make them I will try dipping the cones in melted chocolate (white or regular, haven't decided) sprinkle with my decorations, and then let them stand on a cookie sheet in the fridge until they set. They sound delicious, but I don't know if I could eat a soggy cone. I think it would also be a great idea to hide some kind of little surprise under the cone. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made these for a Harry Potter party as well (for adults! I made these for a Harry Potter party as well (for adults!) and they were a huge hit. The party was months ago, and they still get mentioned regularly. I just made regular cupcakes (no Jello) and, as others have mentioned, frosted the cones before putting them on the cupcakes. I spread the Cool Whip on the cones and then rolled them in the colored sugar. It still took a long time and a lot of work (and I only ended up making a dozen of them!), but the rave reviews were worth the effort. One caveat though: everyone loved how they looked but wasn't all that excited about the taste. The cupcakes were fine, but the cones are really too sweet and are best used just for decoration. To answer a previous poster's question, the star candies/sprinkles stick to the Cool Whip or frosting. You just kind of push them in to the frosting and they're fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were adorable! These were adorable! I used regular cupcakes and then used colored frosting to cover the cones with. I also made them into princess hats by using pink frosting and then pink and purple sugar to cover. I also used little heart decors instead of stars like the picture. My 3 yr old loved them for her Birthday! I will def make these again. So cute and everyone else thought so too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used a completely different recipe but the same decorating idea. I used a completely different recipe but the same decorating idea. These were a big hit. I just used a cake mix to make regular cupcakes. For the hats, I dipped them in melted white almond bark and sprinkled them with colored sugar to make princess hats. Once they set, they were much easier to handle than if they were coated in frosting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Instead of color the cone whileits onthe cupcake, do it before you place the cone on the cupcake. Instead of color the cone whileits onthe cupcake, do it before you place the cone on the cupcake. That's if you don't want the cupcake to be blue. and it's better to use frosting instead of the whipped cream. and the jello taste alright, but it harden the cake faster if you don't do the jello.

We used cream cheese icing instead of whipped cream so that we could make the hats ahead of time. I put them on a cupcake display holder and it make them look even better.
