You need a really sharp bread knife and a really durable cake. Pound cake is usually the best when carving cakes.

I just use a really sturdy cake. everyone says pound cake is the best but I usually just put a box of Jell-o pudding and an extra egg in my mixes if I want a good cake or even use WASC. the key for me is the have my cakes frozen. and I actually like a really sharp steak knife. I like that better than a serrated knife because it's almost like carving away the cake rather than carving off crumbs. (just my preference) I've even used a really sharp potato peeler on a cake when it was frozen and it worked wonderfully! icon_smile.gif

good luck carving!
