Take Oktoberfest to a Whole Other Level with Ne-Mo’s Boozy Bakes Beer Floats

Picnic tables weighed down by foaming beer steins, happy people dressed in lederhosen and dirndls, and massive tents filled with lively music – what’s not to love about Oktoberfest? This Bavarian tradition started in Munich in 1810 and has grown steadily over the centuries. By recent counts, Munich’s Oktoberfest attracts more than 7 million people, who consume an estimated 1.8 million gallons of beer. For your next fest, try out one of these Boozy Bakes Beer Float recipes.

Partially due to the large number of Americans with German ancestry and partially due our knack for knowing a good idea when we see one, Oktoberfest is now also celebrated in cities all over the U.S. The largest domestic celebration is Zinzinnati Oktoberfest in Cincinnati, Ohio, which welcomes 600,000 people into its beer tents and also includes a dachshund race and the world’s largest chicken dance.

If you didn’t think you could possibly have more fun than singing “Ein Prosit” at the top of your lungs as you raise a full stein while doing the chicken dance, you’re wrong. Put a little twist on Oktoberfest by combining two magical things: cake and beer.
