comment Can sarsaparilla and sassafras be substituted with licorice root?
Sarsaparilla root can be order from amazon (I just checked). Natural sassafras flavoring is also available there, but can hardly be recommended if the FDA have seen fit to ban it. If you don't restrict yourself to natural ingredients, then there are some artificial sassafras flavorings there too.

comment Can sarsaparilla and sassafras be substituted with licorice root?
@TFD Only sassafras is considered toxic. Wikipedia says that safrole is a possible (but not thoroughly proven) carcinogen. Elsewhere I read that it is liver damaging. What is for sure is that it is banned by the FDA (while sarsaparilla is not as far as I'm aware). Filé powder, which is made from dried sassafras leaves, is neither toxic nor FDA prohibited. It is usually used as a thicken in gumbo though, so I doubt it could be used to make root beer however it tastes.

comment Why did my pound cake turn out dry?
Not sure this works as general advice. What temperature oven and how much batter are you baking in that case? I guess reducing the baking time for a 2lb recipe that specifies 325°F for an hour by 15mins would be OK provided you test for doneness.

I've flagged the other answer for moderator attention. I believe it should be possible for you to edit your own answers even with one reputation point. Maybe someone will correct me if I'm wrong on that.
