Rootin' Tootin'

Well, I don't qualify to enter this year's Ice Cream Cupcake Roundup (you have til Sunday!!), since I am one of the prize suppliers, but that didn't stop me from making some!

So for our family gathering last week, I thought a great combo would be root beer float cupcakes. I used Baked's recipe for Root Beer Bundt Cake, BUT made them into cupcakes.

Then I topped them some homemade root beer sherbet and some whipped cream...and put them on a boat. Float. On a boat. I'm hilarious. (not really.)
Since the cake was so heavy, the very flavorful root beer sherbet was just what was needed to make the perfect ice cream cupcake combo.

People seemed to like it, but as you know - my family loves root beer so much, we are even BURIED with it.

WOW! That is adorable. I really need to birth some babies so I can make fun treats for them and their friends.

Root beer! OMG. That is so NEXT on my list. Sadly, there isn't enough time for me to bake everything I want to bake. More importantly there aren't enough people willing to take it off my hands. All the nursing homes and shelters are going to start wondering where the cupcakes and cookies are coming from...

Peeved Michelle sent me here. Thanks Michelle!

I love root beer. I love ice cream. Just not together. It's like cheesecake: bleccch. Yet cheese is delicious. Ditto cake. Some sums are less than than the parts. Or something like that. But I like mixing diet coke, root beer and dr pepper. With vodka.
