sounds like you might want a different cake. some are crumbly by their nature.
check the knife you use to cut it - sharp knives make less crumbs.
remember a lot of what looks perfect out there has been very carefully crafted to look that way!

I too think that you need another good cakes recipe. But one thing you can try is, before you torte it or carve it, put it in the fridge or maybe in the freezer for few minutes. So when you cut the cake, less crumbs.

I think you need another recipe for your cake that is more dense and not so crumbly.You can do some searches in the recipe section you then compare to what you have already and adjust.

i know wasc is very dense and great for craving. i invested in really great knives so i know for sure its not that. Its too bad because its my most requested one. i guess i will just keep it for only cupcakes and use wasc with different flavor the cake. Thank CCers
