I wish I had cooked these cupcakes longer, as I don’t think they would have fallen apart as easily, yet would still have retained the moisture. I have yet to try another cupcake with a soda base, but I hopefully will soon because there are so many yummy recipes out there!
I am going to start this blog post off with, I was not thrilled at the way these cupcakes looked, but the taste was pretty good. I am not a fan of soda, but when I do indulge, I like rootbeer to quench my thirst. My fiance and I were going up to Stratton Mountain in Vermont to watch the US Open snowboarding competition with Brendan’s brother and his girlfriend. I decided since they were being so kind as to let us stay with them, I would bring them a treat. That is when I found the recipe for rootbeer float cupcakes on The Cupcake Project! (Please note: this was also because I needed to use up some of the BJ’s sized case of rootbeer that Brendan compulsively bought-so I was on a mission to find a cupcake with rootbeer in it!) I used the cupcake base recipe from The Cupcake Project, and the vanilla bean buttercream from Brown Eyed Baker.
