I am trying to find any info on how to make a Twisted Tea 3d can cake. It needs to serve 60-65. I know I need to stack the layers just not sure how wide I can make the layers (6", 8" or 10") without losing the can  shape. Do I need to carve the top & the bottom to get the can shape? Any info on making this cake would  be deeply appreciated.

ok so i looked it up -- just a can that's named, twisted tea --

http://www.snooth.com/wine/twisted-tea-hard-iced-tea-24-oz/

all you need to do is keep it in proportion -- so that can in the picture ^^^ in the link is approximately 2.5 times taller than it is wide --

ergo if you use 6" cakes your stack needs to be 15" tall -- give or take plus yes to get it right you need to taper the very top and bottom a bit -- and if you fudge to 16" tall you'll get 56 servings 

if cakes are 8" your stack should be 20" to maintain the right proportion -- like 125 servings

but 7" cakes need to be about 18" tall -- and gives you about 76 servings

so your bottom board -- hot glue a slice of 2" foam 7x7" under an 11x11" foam core board -- plant a nice secure 1/2"dowel in the middle all the way through -- hot glue it -- slide your cakes  & boards onto the pole --

or:

those are the plates ^^^ see the tubes here:

http://www.efavormart.com/acrylic-cake-stand-tubes.aspx

secure a 10" or 12" acrylic plate between a couple thick foamcore boards allowing a hole where the  18" tube will fit and trim it to the height you need -- this is very secure

picture pictures pictures --

you still there?
