Super Hero Cupcakes

Make these Superhero  Cupcake Cones for Dad on his special day or, for a fun addition at a Super Hero themed party!

What you'll need:

  • Favorite Cake Mix – I used Betty Crocker

  • Add all ingredients on the box as listed

  • ¼ cup plain yogurt

  • Zest of ½ orange

  • Regular ice cream cones (the ones with the flat bottom)

  • Frosting- any flavor

  • Dad Face pattern & colored pencils

  • Scissors

  • Construction paper: Yellow, Blue & Red

  • Laminator or clear plastic tape

  • Standard size cupcake pan + foil

  • Mixer, Gallon Ziplock bag,  Oven

  • Cape Pattern

 

How to make it:

  1. Follow the cake directions on your favorite mix, adding ¼ cup plain yogurt and the orange zest to the mix. 

  2. Cover a cupcake pan with foil, wrapping it tightly on the top so that you can see the outline of the cupcake areas.  Use a sharp knife to make a slit in the through the center of each cupcake area through the foil.  Insert one ice cream cone into each of the slits.  The foil will help the cones from toppling when they are in the oven baking. 

  3. Fill the ice cream cones about 2/3 full with the batter, being careful not to over fill the cones.  (Tip: If you pour your batter into a gallon ziplock bag and snip off the corner, you will be able to fill the cones without a mess.   Divide the batter between 2 bags for easy pouring)

  4. Place in a preheated oven and bake about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the top of the cakes comes out clean.  Remove to cool. Don’t worry if your cakes have overflowed a little.  You can clean them up with a paring knife before the kids decorate them.

  5. While your cakes cool, cut out the cape pattern pieces.  Attach the superdad emblem to the curved edge of the cape with tape.  Choose your superdad face and color your face.  Add details like glasses or mustaches if you want.  Trim away the excess paper and laminate the face or, cover in clear plastic tape, trimming away the excess.

  6. To make the cape opening:  use the cape pattern as a guide and cut along the pie-like slits in the inner circle.  This will allow you to slide the cape onto the cone with the edges pointing down the cone.

  7. Once your cakes are cooled, top your cone with your frosting.

  8. Next add your cape, bending the front breast plate down in the front and securing with a piece of tape if needed.

Take your Dad face and affix it to the front of your cone with a dab of frosting.  Your superdad cones are ready!
