1 box white cake mix
(I used Betty Crocker's Super Moist white cake mix.)
1 - 12 oz can root beer
1/4 C vegetable oil
3 egg whites (will make a white cake) or 3 eggs (will my yellow like what I made)
1 t root beer concentrate or syrup
(usually where the vanilla and spices are sold. Sometimes called sarsaparilla.)
1 tub (1 lb) vanilla frosting or make it homemade
1/3 C crushed root beer flavored hard candies, about 10 candies
(I like the A&W brand.)
Heat oven to 350° or 325° for dark nonstick pan. Spray 13x9 inch pan with non stick baking spray then coat with flour. In a large bowl, beat cake mix, root beer, oil and egg whites with an electric mixer on low speed for about 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan. Bake 28-36 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
Stir root beer concentrate into frosting. Spread over cake. Just before serving, sprinkle with crushed candies.
FYI: Candies will begin to melt if sprinkled on frosting for longer than 1-3 hours.
