Spray a cake pan with nonstick cooking spray and pour cake mix into the pan. Bake the cake according to the directions on the cake box.

Icing: In a large bowl, mix icing and unthawed cool whip together. Once it is mixed well, add the two tablespoons of root beer to the icing and mix it in. Chill icing in the refrigerator until ready to spread on the cooled cake after it has finished baking.

Side Note: If you do not want a strong root beer flavoring with your cake, you do not have to add the root beer to the icing.
