It’s summer party season, which means it’s time to break out the fun stuff! My kids love cupcakes and all things party related, so I baked up these fun rainbow cupcakes in ice cream cones. It was super simple to do and the kids adored them!

Plus, they’re a great throwback recipe, reminiscent of the classic ’80s/’90s treat.

Rainbow Cupcake Cones

Ingredients

  • Food coloring

  1. Prep the cake batter according to package directions. Then divide the mix amongst three small bowls and dye the batter any colors you’d like.

  2. Place the cones in a baking dish. Layer in the dyed cake batter until you have about 1 inch remaining from the top of the cone.
  3. Carefully place the dish of cones in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the top springs back when touched and a cake tester inserted comes out clean. Allow the cupcakes to cool completely before frosting.
  4. To make the frosting: Divide the contents of the frosting between three bowls and dye the desired colors. Then scoop the colors in small freezer bags and snip a corner off.
