I have a potential client wanting a cake to as close as possible resemble a specific brand chewing tobacco can. I'm not sure on the copyright law on this... would this be legal?

not unless you get permission from the company first. I've contacted companies to do something similar ( a food product), and gotten the OK. Personally I think it's worth the time it takes you to e-mail or make the call if you want to make it.
