Root Beer Float Cake

It's taken awhile to get to this cake but I am trying to get down that list (you know that list we all have of the things we want to try out ). Well...we love root beer in this house and I knew this would be a winner. Even thought about cupcakes for a tiny second...but decide to make it a cake instead and send it with Big Daddy in the morning. Smells so good in here :)
1 bx white cake mix
1 1/4 c root beer
1/3 c veg oil
3 egg whites
1 tsp root beer concentrate or 1 tbsp root beer flavored syrup
1 container Vanilla frosting
1/3 c crushed root beer flavored hard candies- about 10 (optional)
Heat oven to 350º. Spray bottom only of 13x9" pan with baking spray with flour. In large bowl, beat cake mix, root beer, oil and egg whites with mixer on low speed, them medium speed for another 2 minutes. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake 32-36 minutes or until tester comes out clean. Cool completely in pan, about 1 hour. Stir root beer concentrate into frosting. Spread over cake. Just before serving, sprinkle with crushed candies (candies will began to melt 1-3 hours after sprinkled on cake). Store in a loosely covered container.

It is so moist and this recipe really captured that yummy root beer flavor. Found this recipe on the Pillsbury website.

Not sure where to post this because I am new to this blog. But found a recipe for some kind of bread/roll on Pinterest. It has the ingredients for it and a pic but nothing else. Can you tell me more about this? When I click on the pic in Pinterest, it takes me to your page.

Thanks!
