As is, it's four stars. Only because it's not very root beer-y in flavor. The first time I saw this recipe was in a Supermoist cake recipe book and I made it according to recipe, even with the crushed root beer barrels on top. Today, when I made it, I added about a tsp. and a half of root beer flavoring concentrate and I made a Cool Whip Topping (1 container Cool Whip, 1 small box instant pudding, 1 c. milk and one tsp. of vanilla flavoring). This time, it was much more float-like and really incredible. Consider my changes if you decide to make this cake. This cake is a real crowd pleaser. The smell of this cake while it's baking is amazing.

I make this cake all the time! For best results, I let the frosted cake sit in the refrigerator overnight for the root beer flavor to get stronger. I also add 1/4 teaspoon root beer extract to the cake mixture.

I made cupcakes with this recipe and took it to a Father's Day cookout. After reading the reviews, I decided to add the rootbeer concentrate (all I could find at the store. Is it the same as extract?)to the batter. The long mixing time made these light and airy. I also made the Cool Whip/vanilla pudding frosting and added a little rootbeer concentrate to that too. Crushed rootbeer barrels on top were great, but don't add them too early before serving because they kind of melt in the topping. I was told that I had to make these again.
