. . . Coors Light Beer Can "Cake" . . .

For Father's Day I wanted to give my husband something a little bit unique to celebrate his special day.  My son and I did the typical dad gifts too but this was just something fun.

I love making diaper cakes and figured why not make a "cake" out of his favorite beer the same way you do a diaper cake.  I'm so pleased with this Beer "Cake" that I will be doing it again soon.  

 What a great "man" gift! 


• Gather your supplies--beer, pizza pan, ribbon, tags, peanuts, and anything else you would like to add for fun!
• I printed out a tag that said Of "COORS" you can have "NUTS" with your BEER!  Because you are the SUPER DAD of the year!
• I also printed a larger tag for the top of the "cake" that said Super Dad
• Place your beer can in a circle on a pizza pan.  I used a total of 27 cans between the three layers.  Once the layer of beer forms a circle wrap your ribbon or twine around the cans and attach with glue or any adhesive.  

• For the second layer of the "cake" I didn't have the right size pizza pan so I traced a plate onto a box and then cut that out and wrapped it with foil.  You can see the foil wrapped "circle" in the third photo
• Continue to layer the cans and hold them in place with ribbon

• I printed out "flags" and attached them with a little adhesive to a wooden skewer
• I also attached the large "Super Dad" tag to a skewer and added some paper shreds to the center of the top layer and stuck the tag down in the center
• I attached the Beer Tag to the front center of the "cake" with a little glue and then filled the base with shelled peanuts
