  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Bake cupcakes according to package instructions. For 24 cupcakes, fill each cupcake about 2/3 of the way. An ice cream scoop will help keep your cupcakes even.
  3. Mix vanilla frosting with orange food coloring. Once cupcakes have cooled, frost with orange frosting.

  5. Place the ice cream cone upside down on top of the cupcake. Serve and enjoy!
