I need the sugar recipe so that I can use a dowel to hold the can up and have beer pouring out of it on to the cake. I want it to look like its suspended in the air like some of the cakes on here.

What you basically need is a recipe where you melt the sugar, let it cool to where you can work it with your hands and form it around the dowel. I unfortunately don't know what else goes into it besides sugar or what temperature it needs to get to before you take it off the flame, but maybe you could PM some of the people who have posted cakes like that to see if they wouldn't give you a little advice. I'd love to know how to do that, too!

That would be the one! Thank you, thank you, thank you! You have to look down in the comments for the instructions, but they're there. I suppose you should cool it down the way she says to do for pulled sugar, but instead of pulling it, shape it around the dowel, up into the can and down into the "glass" that would be your cake. I'm out of town right now, but I'd really like to try this when I get home.
