Pastry chefs around the country are adding a few glugs of soda to create a fluffy, moist cake -- a tradition in many Southern states -- such as Matt Lewis' Bundt cake that tastes like a root beer float. "We use an all-natural root beer that has a lot of traditional spicing, and then add root beer schnapps, which has that strong root beer punch," Lewis said. "Grandma's cola cake had a lot more cola in it, making it very sweet. Ours is a little more subtle."
