I have seen a lot of diet coke cans on cake central that look a lot better than mine. I don't have an airbrush machine so I had to paint the darn thing with disco dust. I do want to share the "nutrition facts" on the cake: I used some "facts" about the birthday girl to personalize her cake and she really loved it. The bendy straw is gum paste, scored to look like the real deal. Thanks for looking!
