My cousin wants me to mke a beer can for his birthday. I can't figure out how to go about easily forming that shape without messing it up...(I'm NOT good at carving yet!) Is there a pan out there for this, or is there some sort of obvious trick that I'm missing? thanks!

I did a diet coke cake once.... I used 3 6" round cakes stacked.... not much carving necessary in that case. Hope this helps.

Someone I know makes cakes in tins like baked bean tins whenever she wants a shape like that, but I'm guessing a baked bean stin size cake wouldn't be big enough for your needs! I've no idea how well it works either as I've never tried it myself icon_smile.gif

I've baked in a tin can before... didn't work out too well for me considering that I didn't cut the top of the can off and the cake wouldn't come out! LOL... And I'm not really sure about how safe it is to cook in them?

I did a beer can cake I used 6 8" rounds and just cut enough of one side off for it to be flat. It gave it a little bit of a curved can look. Its in my photos.
