Assuming you are using Magento 1.9 with RWD Theme, then locate this file:


And delete (or comment out) this line:

<span class="icon"></span>

And that will remove the icon.

EDIT: Fixed path name

  • I am using Magento ver.

depends on what theme fallback you are using, copy file in your theme and remove line with this code:

Enterprise File:


Enterprise Code:

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('topCart') ?>

RWD File:


RWD Code:

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('minicart_head'); ?>
