Prep Time



Total Time






box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix
Water, oil and egg whites called for on cake mix box
teaspoon ground allspice
teaspoon ground cinnamon
Root Beer-Spiced Whipped Cream
cup whipping cream
tablespoons granulated or powdered sugar
teaspoon ground allspice
teaspoon ground cinnamon
tablespoons crushed hard root beer candies
  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom only of 13x9-inch pan.
  2. In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil and egg whites with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Reserve 1 cup batter. Pour remaining batter into pan. Stir 1/2 teaspoon allspice and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon into reserved batter.
  3. Drop spiced batter by generous tablespoonfuls randomly in 12 to 14 mounds onto batter in pan. Cut through batters with spatula or knife in S-shaped curves in one continuous motion. Turn pan one-fourth turn, and repeat cutting for swirled design.
  4. Bake as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  5. In chilled small bowl, beat all spiced whipped cream ingredients except crushed candies on high speed until soft peaks form. Spread over cake. Sprinkle each serving with crushed candies just before serving. Store covered in refrigerator.

No whipping cream? An 8-oz container of frozen whipped topping, thawed, can be substituted for the whipping cream and sugar. Gently fold 1/4 teaspoon each of ground allspice and cinnamon into whipped topping, and frost cake as directed.
You’ll want to sprinkle the bits of crushed candy over the cake pieces just before serving; otherwise, they may melt into the frosting.
