I have a request for a Dr. Pepper flavored cake. They also want it to look like a Dr. Pepper can. So I found some recipes for the flavored cake. I'm thinking you can just add Dr. Pepper in place of the water to a white or yellow or even chocolate cake and be good right? I really want the flavor to stand out.

But as for the design, should I do it standing up or laying down? what would be easiest and look good?

I do dr. pepper cakes with a white cake and add dr peper instead of water just like you said. It is a very good tasting cake. As far as what would be easiest as far as standing or laying down, I would say that a sheet cake with the can laying on top would probably be the easiest if you are not used to doing cakes that can stand on their own, I would use a loaf pan to do the can and then use a knife to round the can shape. Hope this helps good luck i'm sure it will turn out great.

I agrree w/how to flavor the cake.....BTDT many timesicon_smile.gif
For the shape, do a 2-d by baking three 6 or 8" rounds; cut them in 1/2 & stack w/cut side on the board. You've got your round shape perfectly w/the can being 8-12" lomg. You will need a 9x13 OR 11x15 board.

I've been wanting to do a soda-flavored cake for a while. I don't have a recipe, but the soda-instead-of-water idea sounds cool. I know a lot of Dr. pepper recipes have chocolate in them.

If i were making this cake, I would do a bunch of 6" layers stacked up (with dowels for support) for the soda can shape, but whatever you're comfortable with is cool.

Do you have any friends or family in Texas? The DP museum in Waco, Texas sells a Dr. Pepper Syrup that has a great DP flavor strong than the soda and tastes great in milkshakes and with ice cream. I looked on their website to see if you could order the syrup through their website but I couldn't find it. You have to post some pictures when the cake is done - sounds very yummy!
