I am doing a bass guitar and this is my first really carved cake. Do I torte the layers first and then carve out the shape? Or do I somehow stack the un-torted two sheet cakes on top of each other, carve the shape, take them apart, torte and re-stack?
Neither seems quite right to me. Torting first would leave the edges without the icing barrier, but it is always tricky moving around and re-stacking cake without tearing something!
I am filing the cake with cherry preserves and buttercream.
Thanks for suggestions and help!
Torte and fill, then carve.
