Root Beer Float Cupcakes

Root Beer Float Cupcakes

We think lots of things are better as cupcakes, but this idea for root beer float cupcakes really does have it all. Root beer flavor? Check. Cupcake goodness? Check. Ice cream? Check!

The cupcakes are moist and have a nice, tight crumb that seems to pass on more flavor in each bite. You can really taste the root beer, and the hint of vanilla – which many root beers also include – rounds out the flavor. They can be eaten plain, but they’re at their best when served with ice cream and a drizzle of root beer syrup.

Summer Shandy Cupcakes

Summer Shandy Cupcakes

This is our last month of summer Sundays, so let’s make the best of it. This Summer Shandy Cupcake recipe might just be the perfect sweet treat to accompany those actual shandies on a warm afternoon!

The beer is brewed with lemonade so it’s the perfect combination for a hot summer day, and combined with lemons and lemonade for an extra kick, these babies are an excellent addition to summer. The beer flavor is not extremely overpowering, but you can definitely taste that there’s something a little different going on with them.  Grab them for your next BBQ – and don’t forget the six-pack of Summer Shandy too!

Chocolate Seashell Cupcakes

Chocolate Seashell Cupcakes

Not much says summer more than seashells and sand.  In this case, the ‘sand’ is brown sugar and the ‘shells’ made of white and milk chocolate.

Vanilla cupcakes covered in light blue vanilla buttercream and topped with homemade white and milk chocolate sea shells. Seems like a much sweeter way to collect shells than any we’ve seen!
