Not Your Father’s Root Beer Float Cake

If you LOVE root beer, you’ll not only love Not Your Father’s Root Beer Float Cake, you’ll love the beer! It’s moist and VERY delicious. I know you’d think I’m a big dessert eater, but I don’t eat a ton of it. I love to taste, but I’m not the “sit down and eat a bag of cookies” type. This cake? I wanted to eat every bit of it. EVERY bite. Every bit.
