Default Root Beer Christmas Cake

Root Beer Christmas Cake
By Laura Quarantiello
Every year it's the same old thing: fruitcakes and sugar cookies.
Ho-hum! Holiday baking tops the list of things to do this Christmas
but the results are often uninspired. Why not change the flavor this
year and try something different? Here's a delicious recipe that
everyone will rave about. It's easy, too! .
INGREDIENTS:
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 cup root beer
2 sticks of margarine
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows (optional)

Mix flour and sugar. In a saucepan, combine 1 cup root beer and two
sticks of margarine, bring to a boil and add to the flour/sugar
mixture. Stir well. Add in 1/2 cup milk, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1
teaspoon vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and two eggs. Blend well. If
desired, stir in 1 1/2 cups of miniature marshmallows. Bake in a 9x12
pan at 325F for 30 minutes.

Top your masterpiece off with root beer flavored frosting:

1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/8 teaspoon of salt
2 cups confectioner's sugar
4 tablespoons cream or milk
1 teaspoon root beer extract (or 1 tablespoon of root beer from the
can)

Work the butter and salt with a spoon or electric beater until fluffy
and creamy. Add in confectioner's sugar and cream (or milk),
continuing to stir or beat. Add only enough cream or milk to achieve
spreading consistency. Add vanilla and spread over cake - and stand by
for the applause!
