  • 1 (3.5 oz.) package of instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 (8 oz.) container of frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Food coloring (if desired)
  • 1–3 drops of the food-safe essential oil of your choice


  1. In a medium-size bowl, whisk together pudding mix and milk until well combined.
  2. Stir in whipped topping and vanilla extract.
  3. Add essential oil of your choice.
  4. Divide the frosting into separate bowls, and color each bowl of frosting with your desired food coloring.
  5. Frost the cupcakes with the color of frosting you want for your base.
  6. Using an alternate color of frosting, pipe a belt buckle (or other design of your choice) along the bottom of a chocolate cone. You can use a special frosting bag and piping tools if you have them, or you can use a zip-lock bag with a small corner cut off.
