How to make cake out of tins Instructions
Wrapping different beverage cans as gifts is cool, fun and exciting. And the best thing about this and most of the ideas for a homemade adult gift is that it only takes a few minutes to put together. The most important ingredient for a canned beer cake is logically the beer. Go to a well-stocked supermarket or visit a special drink store and either get the recipient’s favorite brand or mix and match different beers from around the world. But you have to remember that a canned cake is not that easy to carry. For this reason, we recommend using around 12 to 18 cans of beer for your first piece of art.
You will need the following materials:
- 18 beer cans
- Cake plate or serving plate with a diameter of 28 cm
- Cake platter with a diameter of 24 cm
- Cake plate with a diameter of 16 cm
- Double-sided tape
- Ribbon and other decorations of your choice
And that’s how quickly a cake can be tinkered
You have two options for putting the cakes together:
- You can attach the cans to each other with the double-sided adhesive tape and place them on the cake plate.
- Or you can fix the cans on the cake plate with the help of beer mats. It is up to you whether you use finished beer mats from the store or make your own from cardboard and aluminum foil.
- Place 8 beer cans on the first plate, then the middle plate with 6 cans and on top of that comes the smallest cake plate with the last 4 beer cans.
- So that the beer cake does not fall apart during transport, we recommend that you attach the cake plates to the cans with double-sided adhesive tape.
- Finally, tie a suitable gift ribbon around the cake and decorate it with other decorations depending on your mood.
How to decorate a canned beer cake?
Even if a homemade cake made from tins is a real work of art and eye-catcher in itself, the right decoration should not be missing. The easiest way to decorate your gift for men is of course with a color-matching gift ribbon. However, don’t be afraid to use your creativity and add other decorative elements and details. A photo of the birthday child and a balloon or a few candles on the top of the cake complete the whole gift. The recipient treats himself to a whiskey every now and then? So how about if you also decorate the beer cake with a few small bottles?
The birthday child likes to drink beer, but also loves delicious cakes and pies? Then you can bake some delicious muffins and then place them on the beer cans. Now all that’s missing is the candles and you’ve conjured up the perfect birthday present!
And who said that the cake should only consist of cans? You can just as easily use many different chocolate bars and other goodies for it.
