A neighbor recently turned the big 4-0 and the neighborhood got together at the park for a surprise party for him! Originally planning on a beer cake, a captain and coke cake ended up taking form! It was fairly easy to assemble, making a small cardboard base to place the liquor bottle on, you surround the base with coke cans, and continue on to a smaller layer on the top tier to reveal the bottle label. Once you have it assembled, you tie everything TIGHTLY with ribbon or twine and decorate accordingly!
I will say that while it turned out neat, traveling in a car with it is NOT a good idea! I popped it in my trunk to swing down to the park and it rolled over, jumped out of my trunk, and the coke cans exploded all over the place…whoops!
