If you are looking for large/tall cans to use as a 'mold' in the oven, consider the cans from tomato juice and sweet potatoes/yams; I have used both successfully. However, as Loreta noted, her suggested method of draping the baked but still pliable dough doesen't even require a heat proof mold so  that may make it easier.  Also, in 'extreme' situations I've used gum paste rather than gingerbread for curved structures and this has the added benefit of not requiring baking, simply shape it and let it dry out a few days and proceed as though it is typical gingerbread. Just an alternate suggestion if you have something specific in mind that isn't really feasible for baked gingerbread.
