Mr Whippy Ice Cream Cakes

Updated: Jul 21, 2020

There are no words to explain the excitement as a kid (and adults) when you hear the music from the ice cream van. Did anyone else use to run to their parents, hoping they have some coins in their purse and run out of the door to the van?

For those days the ice cream van doesn't come down your road, whip up these delicious ice cream cupcakes which will no doubt excite everyone!

If you're making this with junior chefs, use this kid-friendly version which has the step-by-step guide along with pictures.

Ingredients (makes 12):

For the cake:

  • 150g baking butter, room temperature

  • 150g caster sugar

  • 150g self-raising flour

  • 3 eggs

  • 1tsp vanilla essence

  • Askeys cup cornets

For the buttercream:

  • 250g unsalted butter

  • 500g icing sugar

  • 1tsp vanilla essence


  • Preheat your oven to 160°C and stand 12 cup cornets into a muffin tray

  • In a large bowl, add the butter, sugar, flour, eggs and vanilla and using a whisk (hand or electric), mix together until all the ingredients are incorporated

  • Spoon the cake mix into each cone, be sure to get the cake mix to the bottom and fill to about 3/4 full

  • Place in the oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean

  • When the sponge is cooked, remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack

  • To make the buttercream, in a large bowl, add the unsalted butter, icing sugar and vanilla

  • Using a wooden spoon or silicone spatula, mix together to incorporate the sugar and butter to avoid lots of powder splashing up out of the bowl

  • Once it's incorporated, use your whisk and mix until you get a satin-smooth white buttercream

  • Spoon the buttercream into a piping bag, don't have a piping bag, use this step-by-step guide

  • I used a Wilton 1M Nozzle to get the Mr Whippy swirl, but if you don't have one, just snip the end of the bag

  • Starting from the inside -pipe outwards, slightly overlapping as you go around the cake, then return inwards and finish with a point at the top

  • Chop a Cadbury Flake in half and insert into the buttercream

It's never too cold for ice cream, especially when it's cake!
