Rootbeer Float Cupcakes

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.

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 made some friends with these cupcakes, and left some for our lovely hosts.  Though I am not a frosting fan, this was possibly my favorite part because of the flecks of vanilla bean in the frosting. :)
