How to Use the Cupcake Cone Rack

August 21st, 2019 by Desiree Smith

Rack up memorable desserts in a unique treat stand that works for baking, decorating and displaying delicious cupcake cones. Our cupcake cone rack holds a dozen cones upright and steady for easy access and safe baking, and it’s dishwasher safe so you can spend more time at the party and less cleaning up.

Couple of things to know before taking a scoop out of our projects: Standard sugar cones work best, and 2 tablespoons of batter is just enough for a full cone that’s nicely sized for decorating. If you’re not baking in the cones, a bit of melted candy is a nice way to make sure your filling doesn’t escape the little hole in the bottom.

Ice Cream Cake Torches

Celebrate your sports champion with ice cream cones decorated to look like torches and sprayed gold with Color Mist® food color spray.

Retro Style Donut Cones

A colorful twist on the classic donut, these retro-inspired cones can be filled with rice cereal treats and topped with homemade or store-bought mini donuts. Choose bright Candy Melts candy colors to create a geometric design that gives your sweets display serious curb (or counter) appeal.

Spring Floral Cones

Go wild! Decorate cupcake cones with candy and icing flowers, leaves and ferns to make dainty sugar cone posies.


Watermelon Ice Cream Cones

For a simple decorating project that makes your ice cream scream “summer,” use food color spray and FoodWriter™ edible color markers to make watermelon-themed cones, then place them in the rack for an easy display.


Mickey Mouse Fruit Cones

Looking for a healthier snack idea? Use a bit of icing to attach icing decorations to the front of your sugar cones (we used Mickey), then fill cones with an assortment of fresh fruit.

Whether baking or decorating, our cupcake cone rack is another way to make unique treats that bring the joy of ice cream to tummies year-round. Have an idea for a cool cone treat or want to show off a successful attempt? Comment below or tag us on Instagram @Wiltoncakes.

    Did you find that the cones got soft after baking the cupcakes inside ? How did you prevent the bottom from leaking out?

    Thank you. I have 2 racks, love them.
