Root Beer Float Cupcakes

Photo and Recipe inspiration from: abeautifulmess.com

These cupcakes were so yummy! I like root beer, but I don't love it, so I chose to make my favorite chocolate cupcakes without any root beer taste; the frosting is where we added the root beer flavor :) 

Frosting (makes about 2 cups)
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 teaspoons root beer concentrate
- 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Optional: 
- paper straws cut in half
- maraschino cherries

1. Whip the butter butter and concentrate until well combined and almost fluffy. 
2. Incorporate powdered sugar, about 1/2 cup at a time, until desired consistency.
3. Pipe onto cooled cupcakes.

Tips: 
* If the frosting becomes too thick, add a tablespoon of milk. 
* We used root beer concentrate because that's all we could find, if you have root beer extract, use 3 teaspoons. The frosting may be lighter in color.
