    Oh my gosh, root beer floats are one of our favorite summer treats. We just made them two nights ago, in fact.

    Gorgeous cupcakes! The little bendy straw garnish is too perfect for words… love it.
    I can’t believe you’re not sick of root beer after three entire batches of cupcakes, though. :)

    Look at that, we were both thinking about beer :D I didn’t even know there was such a thing as root beer extract….I have to go hunting for it now. My sister dumped caramel and pretzels over her ice cream, but I like the peanut idea, genius.

    Oh my, what a flavor combination! I love root beer floats. They rock. I am not a cupcake baker though. I am terrible with frosting things. I would rather just buy one or get one at a birthday party! I guess I am lazy too. Anyway, these look amazing and make me want to break out of my procrastination and actually bake. Just might. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Brilliant! We’ve been drinking root beer floats a lot this summer, since our summer vacation in BC (where they seemed to be far more popular than here in Ontario). I LOVE the idea of making the cupcakes and the straw is a perfect addition.

    I love it when you take on a challenge. You’d be great on Top Chef. Hmm, aren’t they auditioning in Canada now?

    These look like summer. I bought that root beer extract once to make home made root beer. The concoction exploded all over my pantry and left me with yeasty goo. This looks a lot safer. Apparently I am not much of a chemist either! Thanks for sharing your hard work!

      We bought the extract for root beer too but just never made it. Now I’m kinda glad we didn’t…Thanks for sharing!

    Where do I find the whipping cream stablizer? Never heard of it before. What exactly is it?

    • Elizabeth
      August 14, 2010

      I found Whip it in my local small grocer’s baking supply aisle. It is Dextrose, modified corn starch, tricalcium phosphate….a bunch of chemicals. You could try not using any and whipping the cream VERY stiff, but not into butter! If you are going to eat the cupcakes right away you wouldn’t need it, but any amount of time sitting out and the whipped cream will deflate and begin to separate.

      Also, there is another way to stabilize whipped cream using gelatin. Try this site for the method: http://www.wikihow.com/Stabilize-Whipped-Cream

Someone sent me root beer extract from home and now I make my own root beer and now Im going to make these! How funny that you used Dr Oetkers Whip it,thats a huge name brand over here. I didnt even know they sold it anywhere else other than here.

      I have two print options. One at the top and one at the very bottom.

      Hi Bruce, as I have said above, there is a print button at the bottom of the post. If you scroll to the bottom of the post, just above the comments section it says “Print This Recipe”. Click that and it will open a new window to print that does not have photos.
