      Okay, I have been baking for 35 years, but I admit, it is not my strong point. I made this, carefully following the directions. The batter seemed loose, filled the bundt pan, I baked it, tested it with a piece of spaghetti, and it came not out clean, but with crumbs on it. I took it out, placed it on a rack and let it rest in the pan for 15 minutes as advised. When I came back, it had shrunk to half its size! I removed it from the pan, and although it looked cute, it was tiny. When I cut it, it was squishy in the middle. It tasted good, just strange texture. <br/>So, did anyone else have this experiance?

      I made this cake for a graduation party, the honoree is an avid fan of root beer. Everyone complimented the cake and there was none left over by the end of the party. It is a good, moist cake, however I wish the root beer flavoring was a bit more pronounced. I may use more rootbeer in the glaze next time...

      This is a very good and extremely simple cake to make - great for me as baking is not my forte. I made this cake in a regular 9x13 pan and served it with coconut ice cream. It is true, the root beer flavor is not very pronounced, but it sure smelled great while baking - I had to steal a piece before the guests arrived!
