Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

September 24, 2019 - Would you like to serve colorful, delicious cone cakes at your next birthday party, Halloween celebration or Savannah soiree? Now you can, thanks to Yippee! Cone Cake Co.’s new home-based bakery in Savannah, Ga.

Leilani Lowry, founder of Yippee! Cone Cake Co., has been baking cone cakes, which are cupcakes baked inside ice cream cones, all her life. She launched her Savannah-based company in January 2018 and sold a line of cone cake holders and decorating kits online and at trade shows across the country. Her original goal was to market specialty items to make it easier for her customers to bake cone cakes in their own kitchens.

“Interestingly, I’ve gotten a lot of requests from people to bake cone cakes for them, so I decided to expand my services to meet customer demand,” Lowry explains. “I’m excited to now offer cone cakes to my Savannah-area customers who are looking for a fun alternative to conventional cupcakes for parties and special events.” 

Customers can choose from a tasty Fall line-up, which includes festive Halloween designs and delicious flavors such as Pumpkin Spice Latte, Snickerdoodle and Chocolate Hazelnut. 

“Vanilla is the most popular flavor,” Lowry explains. “Everyone loves them!”

 Full-sized and mini-cone cakes can be ordered online through the Yippee! Cone Cake Co. website. All cone cakes are available by the dozen and require one-week notice. Free delivery is available throughout the Savannah area.

Custom orders are a specialty. Lowry enjoys coming up with creative ideas to match the theme of each customer’s party.

Lowry received her cottage food license from the Georgia Department of Agriculture (DOA), and her home kitchen has been inspected and approved by the DOA. She also successfully completed the StateFoodSafety Food Protection Manager Certification exam before expanding her company to include cone cake baking services.
