My husband collects Dr. Pepper bottles and stuff. So this year for his birthday I wanted to make him a special Dr. Pepper cake because he also retired.
I copied one of his old Dr. Pepper bottles on the shelf in our living room. I made two 9×13″ German chocolate cakes and one white 9×13″ cake. I put coconut/pecan/Carmel filling in the middle and frosted it in white buttercream frosting.
With the white cake I cut out the bottle shape and laid it on top of the cake. I tried to match the colors of the bottle and the soda and the writing as close as the real thing. He loved it a lot!
