I need a recipe or two. My cakes are moist but not dense enough to carve. I have tried a pound cake recipe, but it was too dry. Im really new at this and was using boxed cake mix and doctoring it up. I Got lots of compliments, but I feel like Im cheating! Please Help!!!!

Hi! I am fairly new at this too and don't know of a scratch cake that meets your needs at this time but everyone raves about the WASC (White Almond Sour Cream Cake - recipe here on cc) for stacking and carving. I have used it a few times (I am still new) and EVERYONE seems to LOVE it. There are variations to the recipe that you can do too in order to make a chocolate cake, lemon cake, and strawberry cake. HTH!

I have used straight cake mix, doctored cake mix (pudding and extra egg) and varations of the WASC cake for carving.
