For my friend's birthday i wanted to make a snake-shaped cake, so i made two different-sized ring cakes. when they were set out to dry i needed counter space so i put the small one on top of the big one - they made a lovely stacked tower, only lacking the final tier. strangely enough, a beer can fit perfectly in height and width so i covered one in tinfoil, popped it in, and iced it up. when my friend tried to cut the cake she looked really worried, as i am known for my pride in baking! i had to tell her that it was actually a beer can, and she took it out and then we ate the actual cake. yum!.
