"This was a hit with the Boy Scouts! I made them into cupcakes with root beer jelly beans Sprinkled on top. Not only cute but all the boys loved them. I had root beer extract on hand and added 2 teaspoons to the cake mix as well. As a volunteer Taste of Home field editor I love quick and easy desserts that impress!"

"My son loves root beer floats and I am looking for a different birthday cake that  I can add food color to.  His birthday is on Halloween so I have been making "Ugly" cakes.  This can be fun!!!"
