I have been craving something sweet for days and while I was cleaning my pantry I realized that I had this icing decorator thingy from Pampered Chef that was still in it's box. I had bought it a while ago hoping it would make my cupcakes look FABULOUS! So, I decided that I'd try it out today since it's Sunday and calories don't count on Sunday.
Since I was using my fancy schmancy icing decorator, I figured I'd better make something equally as fancy. I decided to poke around on my cousin's blog for some ideas and came across Root Beer cupcakes. I figured it had to be delicious because all of her stuff always looks so good. Seriously, whenever I see a new picture on Facebook my mouth starts to water. All of her creations look amazing! And judging by these cupcakes, I'm sure they taste amazing too.
The icing does taste exactly like a root beer float! The cake part has cocoa in it which I wasn't sure about at first but it worked really well together. I have to admit, this was a little more work then I'm used to since my cupcakes usually come out of a box but it was well worth the effort! My frosting does not look quite as FABULOUS as I hoped... I guess my Pampered Chef thingy isn't magical after all... but it passed the taste test conducted by Abby and Dan so it's definitely a winner!
