What is the best cake recipe to use for carving? I'm doing a shark cake this weekend and was wondering which recipe would hold up better to carving and holding strong edges!
Hi, I don't do much carving, but I found few recipes which are for carving.
You need to scroll down to see the recipes.
I was looking for carving recipes too! Thanks!
Carving the cake while frozen or semi-frozen will help with whatever recipe you use.

I love shark cakes! The best shortening for a carved cake is butter so use a recipe that calls for butter. The cake should be well frozen when you start to carve. Butter will make the cake harder when frozen so it will be neater to carve. Please post the finished cake.
Thanks for all the linkd JanH and bashini!!
