I made a rootbeer cake three layers high, covered it with Swiss buttercream frosting, put it in the fridge overnight then took the handle of a wooden spoon and pressed in the ridges in the mug, for the handle I used a wooden letter C I picked up at Michael's for 1.29 for the foam I used marshmellow whip from the dollar store and just piled it on and left it sitting out at room temp so it sort of melted and ran down the sides when it liked right I put it back in the fridge, for the pouring beer I emptied the beer and hooked a wire to the flip top I left the wire long enough to stick deep into the cake then I covered the wire between the can and cake with fondant I used a knife to sort of shave the fondant to look like splashes,,,,I hope that helps if you have questions please ask and I will try to explain better.
