Sing yourself a sugary tune after these microphone cupcake cones are complete. This is a simple recipe that puts a spin on regular cupcakes, giving kids a thrill. You can use any flavors of cake mix and frosting that you wish to customize these sweet treats!

Microphone Cupcakes


  • Cake mix and all ingredients to prepare according to package
  • Cake cones (regular size)
  • Frosting
  • Oreos, crushed (for topping or brown sprinkles)
  • Muffin pan
  • Foil


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Line the insides of the muffin pan with a ring of foil to help the cake cones stand up in the oven.
  3. Mix the cake batter according to the directions on the box.
  4. Fill the cones halfway with the cake mix.
  5. Bake for 20-23 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Let cool completely before frosting.
  7. Add crumbled Oreo topping or brown sprinkles. I simply dunk the cupcake cones upside down into the topping to coat them completely.
  8. Enjoy and don't forget to sing!
