I have heard that the best type cake to use is a pound cake (when you are decorating) cause it holds up the best. Is this true? I was told by someone that was told this by a actual cake place (they were doing her wedding cake) I am planning my childs first birthday and just found a really easy elephant cake I want to try. It is made out of 2 9X13 cakes and you just go from there. Also I want a really good tasking icing to use. I dont want to use fondate (sp?) Is the buttercream icing a good choice? Of course I will have to color it another color.
Thanks
Denise
