I am new to sculpting, and want to make a puppy cake for my two year old's bday. What type of cake is best to use for sculpting? Should it be more of a dense cake like a pound cake or can I stick w/the family's fav. and use the good old Pillsbury cake mix? Thanks for any suggestions!!! icon_smile.gif

Pound Cake all the way... It would be more stable and not fall apart. Try the WASC it's a dense yet very moist cake. Any cake flavor will do mix it up..

White Almond Sour Cream = WASC
however, don't let that fool you b/c it doesn't have to be almond. You can basically use any flavor combo you want. The original WASC recipe is listed in the recipe section

Here is the WASC recipe I looooove it, and it is my #1 favorite recipe this is from cakelady you can substitute the almond for any other, just make sure to freeze the cake and carve it when it is frozen it will be easy to carve and will not fall apart. thumbs_up.gif
