      Loved them! Instead of using 2 t vanilla, I put in 2 t root beer oil/extract - really made the root beer flavor good & strong. You can find root beer oil/extract at any cake decorating supply store or online. I also did a quick homemade icing with extra vanilla and skipped the root beer candy.

      We liked them but I was hoping for a stronger root beer flavor. Word of caution here, don't leave the house without moving them to where the sun can get at 'em...see what happens when you do, LOL.
