I am making a root beer flavored cake for a 4 year old boy's birthday. I am trying to think of how I could make the filling taste like vanilla ice cream, so overall the cake would taste like a root beer float. I kn I have seen a recipe like this somewhere, and now I can't find it!

I'd appreciate any suggestions!

Toba Garrett has one in her book "The Well Decorated Cake" called French Vanilla Buttercream that she describes as tasting like vanilla ice cream, I haven't tried it myself though.

If you have a restraurant supplier or a snowball supplier they sell Ice Cream concentrate for SnoBalls use it as a flavor you would add to buttercream frosting. If you can find SouthernSnow or SnoWizard concentrates they are the 2 I am familar with and I would recommend either one.
Yes these concentrates are very tasty in Buttercream.

I would try using a french vanilla coffee creamer as your liquid for the buttercream and getting some vanilla bean paste to add to it.

I use the french-vanilla coffee mate in my buttercream with vanilla and butter flavorings. Tastes like vanilla ice-cream! icon_smile.gif
