The dessert transforms the drink into a new edible format capturing many of the iconic tastes of the creamy beverage that make it so popular and well-loved.
The trick to making the cupcake dough taste like root beer soda is infusing the vanilla cake mix dough directly with the pop and adding sour cream to replicate the creaminess of the melted ice cream. The cupcakes can be baked inside vintage milkshake mugs for added presentation.
