    cake ingredients

    root beer glaze

    • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
    • 1/3 cup root beer
    • 3 tablespoons root beer Schnapps (*)
    • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350ºF.
    2. 2
      In a bowl, mix together root beer schnapps, root beer, and vanilla extract. Set aside.
    3. 3
      In a separate bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
    4. 4
      Add eggs, mix until smooth.
    5. 5
      Sift in flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
    6. 6
      Mix with hand mixer on low, while slowly pouring in root beer mixture.
    7. 7
      Mix until smooth and lump free.
    8. 8
      Pour into lined cupcake pan. (Use foil cupcake liners to avoid leakage later.) Fill nearly to the top, you may think its over-filled, but it puffs up perfectly this way. Don't be tempted to use more than 24 cupcake cups.
    9. 9
      Bake for 15- 20 minutes, until golden brown and cake springs back when touched.
    10. 10
      While cupcakes are baking, prepare your butter cream and root beer glaze. For glaze, put all ingredients into a bowl and mix with a wisk until smooth and lump free.
    11. 11
      To assemble, start by letting cupcakes cool, still in the pan.
    12. 12
      While still slightly warm, pour 1 Tbs. of root beer schnapps over each cupcake. Pour on slowly to allow schnapps ( or regular root beer for the kiddies) to soak inches.
    13. 13
      Once the schnapps has soaked in and let sit for a few minutes, pour a couple tablespoons of glaze over each cupcake.
    14. 14
      When the glaze sets up a bit and isn't too runny, put a "scoop" of buttercream atop each. For an added touch, you can even place a root beer barrel candy on each one.
