I know this has been asked before but from my searching it's been mixed with other topics and I find different responses.

I was thinking about using the WASC for a bear cake and thought I would get a poll going so the responses are all in one place.

If you use a different kind of cake please tell also. I know this would help me and many others wanting to carve a cake.

Great question, something I also would like to know, so here's a bump.

I've never actually tried it, but I have made the WASC a couple of times it it was quite dense IMO. So I think it probably would carve fine.

I use wasc and all its variations for carving. Its dense enough to stand up well and there are not a huge amount of crumbs. Just be sure any recipe you choose to use for carving is cold before you begin.

Hi pumpkinroses,

I just hand-carved my very first cake...a Lightning McQueen from Disney's Cars (see below). I used the WASC and leveled/torted/filled/carved the cake. IMO, it carved pretty good. I don't know what to compare it to since I've never carved anything else, but I would definitely use it again. Good luck with yours!!!

I just carved my BBQ sauce bottle cake last week, but I used the 'original' WASC cake recipe and had no problem. I did freeze the layers first which always helps!!

Thanks for the replies. I have carved before but I used Elisa Strauss's Vanilla cake and didn't want to use that for my DD birthday next month because WASC is so good.
