I have been craving a root beer float ever since I had posted about them in my Summer Celebration post, so today's cupcake is: Root Beer Float cupcakes.
This recipe could not be easier!
Take a box of your favorite vanilla cake, and 1 cup of your favorite root beer. Mix the two together...yep, that's it! Pour the mixture into cupcake liners [makes 24] and bake at 350 degrees for about 15-18 min. You want the cupcake to spring back when it's touched lightly.
Let the cupcakes cool completely once removed from the oven.
Use your favorite buttercream recipe* & 1 tsp. of root beer extract. Mix the two and frost cupcakes.
*basic buttercream recipe is compliments of Martha Stewart. The measurements used are for a large cake, please make sure you recalculate the amount of buttercream necessary for the cupcakes.
