Tuesday's Treats ~ Root Beer Float Cake

I've been wanting to show you some of the yummy treats I've been creating lately and I've decided to post a little somthin' somthin' each week for you to see and maybe even try yourself.

I recently came across this recipe and really wanted to make it for Ian, as he loves a good root beer float.

It's a really nice cake and not too sweet, with just the right hint of root beer.

You'll need:

1 package (18 1/4 ounces) white cake mix
1 & 3/4 cups cold root beer, divided
1/4 cup canola oil
2 eggs
1 envelope whipped topping mix (Dream Whip)

How To:

Step One: Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine the dry cake mix, 1 & 1/4 cups root beer, oil and eggs. Beat on low for 2 minutes.

Step Two: Pour into a greased 13 inch x 9 inch baking pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Step Three: In a small bowl, combine the whipped topping mix and remaining root beer. Beat until soft peaks form. Frost cake. Refrigerate.
