These are super easy to make and delicious. I added about a 1/4 tsp root beer extract to amp up the flavor. I also made a stabilized whipped cream for the frosting. Really delicious.

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!
