Ok it's me and my Pirate Ship again You have all helped me figure everything out so far, now can you please give me a detailed order of how I should put this together. The party is on a Saturday so...
After I bake the cakes please tell me exactly what to do next. Level, Wrap, Freeze, Defrost, Crumb Coat, Stack, Carve, Frost & Decorate? Or do I crumb coat and then freeze etc. Talk to me like a baby, I don't mind I really want to get this right.
Also can you fill carved cakes/should you? If so at what point would I do this?
Thank you so much!! Andrea

I would bake,level, wrap freeze, defrost, stack, carve, crumb coat, frost and decorate. I don't like to crumb then fz....you want that coating to dry and putting it in the fzr will not allow it to dry.
Others may have a different way of doing it but that is the steps I would take.
You can bake your cake as you normally would. Chill the cake so they are a bit firm for carving. Fill, stack and dowel as necessary and just carve. Crumb coat. Let the icing firm up then apply you regular coat and cover with fondant.
Thanks guys! Now I'm not using fondant, doing all crusting BC, but how do you fill a carved cake, if I fill, stack and then carve won't I cut right through the dams and cause leaks? Sorry for so many questions, this is my first carved cake.
