good idea!..... Here's how I did it: 3 of each 8", 12" and 16" cake boards. I painted mine blue. Hot glued them together. Use an empty can to trace placement of cans on each cake board. This takes 53 cans of beer...yes...53 cans...wired ribbon to wrap the cans after taping them all down. Adhesive letters to embellish the ribbon. Homemade cake topper with glitter, dowels and curly ribbon.
We would do a Mt. Dew cake! 12" round - 13 cans 10" round - 9 cans (just around the edge, not in the center, this layer only) 8" round - 8 cans use cake tins instead of cardboard to support the weight of the beer. More
