Cake Pops (Ice Cream Cones)
  • 13 ice cream cones (of your choosing)
  • 3 cups (8oz/225g) chocolate cakes (or whatever cake you like)
  • 1⅓ cup (8oz/227g) bittersweet Chocolate
  • 1 cup (8oz/225g) Cream
  • 1 cup (6oz/8170g) white chocolate
  • ½ cup (3oz/85g) milk chocolate
  • Sprinkles
  1. **** A cardboard box to stand your cones up in is very important
  2. To make the ganache: Heat the cream in a heavy bottomed saucepan. When it reaches a simmer, take it off the heat and pour it over the chopped chocolate. Let it sit there for 3-4 minutes on the chocolate and then whisk until the chocolate has melted.
  3. Crumb the cake with your fingers until it is nice and fine.
  4. Mix the cakes crumbs with ½ cup of ganache.
  5. With a tablespoon scoop the cake to a nice rounded ball. Set aside in the fridge
  6. To prepare the cones: With a carving knife carve your mini ice cream cone to 3 inches big.
  7. Stand the cones upright and fill each one with ganache.
  8. Dip the cake ball in a little bit of ganache and place it securely on top of the cone.
  9. Place the cones in the fridge to set hard.
  10. To decorate: melt some white chocolate gently and color with some pink food coloring.
  11. Dip in your cake pop into the chocolate coating it all over. Try and do this step quickly as you don’t want the dark chocolate on the pop to get in the pink chocolate mix.
  12. Once the chocolate sets you can add some melt milk chocolate on top and sprinkles to really make your ice cream pop Big and Bold!!! Eat once ready 🙂

    • Gemma Stafford on July 15, 2017 at 2:34 am

      Hi there,

      Gemma 🙂

    Aww, tiny ice cream cake pops! I love them so much! Do you think that leftover cake can be used to make these cake pops?

    • Gemma Stafford on June 27, 2017 at 9:50 am

      for sure, left over cake is perfect for them 🙂

    Hi Gemma
    I am so inspired by your recipes. I made cake truffles with all your diy tutorials. I made condensed milk. Use it with chocolate truffle and ganache. Made sour cream and used to make cake balls. You are the best!

    • Gemma Stafford on October 9, 2016 at 3:46 am

      Good job you! I am happy to hear from you, I cannot do anything without your kind support,
      Gemma 🙂

  6. Martha Jenn on August 8, 2016 at 6:29 pm

    Hi Gemma,
    Thanks for the recipe. I will try it.
    Can you make a video about cake pops?

  7. Tiba sheikh on July 12, 2016 at 9:53 am

      I just saw them, you are a baking rockstar!!!! I am so happy the other Bold Bakers can get what you created so they know the recipes can look like yours :).

  8. Sarah on July 6, 2016 at 6:08 pm

    These are so adorable and I am planning to make them tomorrow but was wondering what the shelf life on them is? Will the ice cream cones go stale if left out until Sunday? How would you store them?
    Many thanks!

    • Gemma Stafford on July 7, 2016 at 2:48 am

      Hi Sarah,
      Yes, the cones will soften if left out until Sunday. You will need to store them in a large airtight container, and refresh them in a warm oven before using. This will restore the crispness.
      Gemma 🙂

    Oops I said that twice sorry that was a mistake

  11. Sheena on September 2, 2015 at 12:39 pm

    For the cake I used the microwave double blueberry and lemon cake but with no blueberry and it was great

    • Gemma Stafford on September 2, 2015 at 6:21 pm

      Great, really glad you liked this. Thanks for all of your comments, Sheena 🙂

  12. Sheena on September 2, 2015 at 8:28 am

    I made this and the cake I used was the microwave double blueberry lemon cake but with out the blueberries and it was great

  13. Cathy on August 19, 2015 at 7:26 pm

    I love the cake pop idea and I’m going to make them for my grandchildren . One question when you say cream, do you mean whipping cream?

    • Gemma Stafford on August 24, 2015 at 8:36 pm

      Hi Cathy! Yes, heavy whipping cream or any fresh cream will work well. I hope you and your grandchildren enjoy! 🙂

    Hi Gemma I came across your website trying to find a recipe to make for my moms birthday next Sunday and when I saw these ice cream cone cake pops I found what I was looking for. I am Irish and love your YouTube channel I just subscribed two days ago and it is all me and my brothers watch. My youngest brother was wondering if you could make coconut free Nanaimo bars because my moms friends are Canadian and they are allergic to coconut.

    • Gemma Stafford on August 7, 2015 at 12:09 pm

      Thank you so much for your comment, Caitlyn. Delighted you found my website. I will add your request to my list. Stay tuned 🙂

      • Caitlyn Telford on August 8, 2015 at 5:54 am

        Thank you also would you be able to make them gluten free as my aunt’s mom is unable to consume gluten
