Twinkies are a pop culture icon, as well as a snack cake. They’re something that everyone can recognize, even if your mom never packed one of the cream filled sponge cakes in your lunchbox when you were a kid. I remember having them as an occasional treat at lunch (usually when I managed to trade snacks with a friend whose mom packed unhealthier treats in ... Read More »

Root Beer Float Cupcakes, in progress

I have been itching to make some root beer cupcakes with my bottle of Sonoma Syrup Co’s Root Beer Syrup because the syrup is so flavorful and seemed like it would pass on a great root beer flavor into baked goods.
