Scrumptious Swirls icecream cone chocolate cupcake with carmel peanut butter buttercream

Here's what you need and want to do to prepare these fun cupcakes!

Whether you want to make a cupcake recipe from scratch or pick up a cake mix be sure to get either a sugar cone or a regular cake cones to fill the batter with.

You can follow Martha Stewart's ice cream cone cupcake recipe click on the link, she shows you how to make a cake recipe from scratch and uses sugar cones.

If you follow a cake mix like Duncan Hines click on the link for the how to~

So I prepared my cake batter but I used cake cones so that I was able to use a muffin pan covered in tin foil and you poke holes for the cones to bake.  It is very quick and easy!  

Again take a peak at Martha Stewart's recipe on how to bake these.  What she did with her cones (seen below) the difference for me was I just used a muffin pan.

As for the buttercream, prepare your favorite buttercream recipe. Melt carmel candy in the microwave and add it to the buttercream after it is prepared along with a scoop of peanut butter and mix until well blended.  It really depends on your taste of how much! I bet you can even buy a can of buttercream icing in the grocery store and add the ingredients too it.  If not just buy carmel syrup, some peanut butter chips & vanilla buttercream you will most likely get very close tho the same tastes and results!  

As for making the ice cream scoop look or the swirls you either want to use a mini ice scream scoop or a pastry tip.  In the photos above the tips I used were Ateco tips # 827 & 898.

Give it a try and enjoy! I hope you like it as much and my family and friends enjoyed them!!   

Peace, Love & Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes!!!
