I think the metal for soda cans are a little too thin ( cake might burn) and I am not sure on how the paint on the outside will be when placed in a hot oven. I would empty out some canned corn or other vegetable, peel off the labels give it a good wash and use those can as long as it is not painted inside or out.
Regarding baking in a can: we mustn't forget that Boston staple, immortalized on Chopped as "Brown bread in a can" (that's exactly how Ted Allen announced it, and exactly what the art department's fake label on the can said). Yes, I know, it's a steamed bread, not a baked cake, but it IS cooked right in the can. (One of the Chopped episodes featuring it also featured cherimoya, in the same round, and contained Allen's most memorable cherimoya warning, "You must not eat the seeds; you must not serve the seeds. They are not good for you; they might even kill you.")

I should think that one advantage of a soda can as a baking vessel would be that it would be very easy to unmold the cake, simply by ripping the can apart around it.
