I decided the combine the idea of a root beer float with a cupcake. Since I've made cherry cola cupcakes before, I thought this would be a fun idea for a cupcake. Boy, I was right!
I substituted root beer for some of the milk in my favorite vanilla cake recipe, topped the cupcakes with a slightly sweet whipped cream, and garnished with a cherry. I'll definitely be bringing these back during summer grilling season!
