So adorable to look at but super tasty to eat! And because they only take a few moments to whip up, you won’t really need a special occasion to make the princesses in your life feel special.

Princess Party Hats for a perfectly posh party

I have never heard so many “mmmm” that came from my daughter when I told her I needed a “taste tester”.

Me: Are they good?

Her: mmmmm

Me: Does that mean they are good?

Her: mmmm, hmmmm

create your own princess party hat

I know that I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my cotton candy machine (yes, I really bought a cotton candy machine) so for now I had to use bagged cotton candy. You can pick some up at a Dollar General store usually.


  • These are a serve and eat treat.
  • If the ice cream is melted when you add it or starts to melt during the process, your icing wont stick to the cone. It starts to slide.
  • Make sure you do not overfill or at least use a larger cookie at the base to avoid ice cream leakage affecting your decorating.
  • Don’t be afraid to get creative and theme your Princess Party Hats! Maybe strawberry ice cream, strawberry frosting, and strawberry cotton candy! Or blue ice cream, purple frosting, and white cotton candy! Do not be afraid to experiment for different flavors and themes.
  • It’s fun to use all sorts of candies for decor from chocolate chips, to nerd candies, or even coconut shreds. I am still pushing around the Easter candy around here, so I like to dig through that bucket for some inspiration.

Princess hat, create your own with cotton candy and an ice cream cone


Princess Hats – Party Time!

Princess Party Hats made with ice cream, cotton candy, and frosting are adorable for the little princess in your life

  • Favorite Ice Cream
  • Sugar Cones
  • Frosting
  • Cookies (wafers)
  • Cotton Candy
  • Decor
  1. This is so easy that I hesitate to give directions. All you do is add about half full or so of ice cream into the sugar cone.
  2. I put frosting around my cookie edge to get it to stick inside. Feel free to use a larger cookie or flavored cookie for the base.
  3. Use icing around the edges of the sugar cone and then decorate. I used a wilton icing tip to do it because it made it easier than a knife.
  4. Add a sliver of cotton candy for the top.
  5. Be creative!
I was flipping through a magazine one time in the grocery aisle and saw this idea…theirs was much fancier. I did the real person version.

  1. I’m making these for my daughter’s party at school, but instead of using the icecream (because of school) I’m gonna fill them with cotton candy. Hope they turn out good!!

  2. Would it be possible to make these ahead of time? It seems a little impractical to do AT the party.

  3. Hey there! Just wanted to let you know we featured you in our Favorite Find Fridays post over at Whimsically Homemade. We used one of your pictures. If that’s a problem let us know and we’ll remove it immediately. Thanks for your great inspiration!

  4. Oh I think these would be CUTE for my niece’s 3rd birthday. I may have to be a cool aunt and make them lol.
