I love creating cakesicles or maybe you call them cake pops, so when this ice cream cone mould arrived from Fest Cake London I knew it just had to be used for some ice cream themed cakesicles. In this weeks tutorial I’m showing you how you can use the mould to create realistic looking Ice creams that won’t melt (ok I know the chocolate or candy melts will melt in the heat, but not as fast as real ice cream).
These would be great to add into treat boxes, used to decorate cakes, or serve up at parties.
You can watch the full step by step video tutorial here. In the tutorial I show you how to make the cones using the moulds by Fest Cake London, how to make the cake mixture for the inside and how to cover them in candymelts to look like ice cream. ⇩
The Cones – Plus 10% off Chocolate moulds
For the cone these are made from candy melts. You can also use chocolate, but make sure you temper your chocolate first. I love candy melts as they don’t need to be tempered, you can just melt them in the microwave and they are ready to use.
The mould was a 3 part mould which makes it so quick and easy to create the shells. Just pour in your candy melts or your tempered chocolate up to the line, push in a flexible middle and add on the back. This means that they create a shell that is the same thickness all over. For the colour of the cone I coloured my candy melts with dust colours by Sugarflair. Dust colours are great as the colour mixes well into melted candy melts and you only need a small amount. Dust colours are a great alternative to oil based colours.
As well as using the cones to make caksicles you can also use them on your cakes, if you’re making a melting ice cream cake, or maybe you want to add them around the side.

What Ice cream would be complete without sprinkles. In the video I make a variety of different Cakesicles but I think my favourite is the one with chocolate over the top, covered in sprinkles. For the sprinkles I’m using this fun Colour Up mix by Happy Sprinkles. It is perfect for ice creams with its vibrant colours and mixture of different shapes.
