Hi there! I have been asked to do a 3D tractor cake, and I am wondering what kind of cake they use on Cake Boss, Ace of Cakes, etc. that is able to be cut and shaped more easily with a serrated knife? My cakes are too soft and crumbly... I have heard pound cake, but that's still too soft (the recipe I have anyway)...
I heard them say on a show once that they had cream cheese in the pound cake? Is that true? Should I find a recipe with that in it???
I am a rookie and have no idea what to do! I would love any help!! =) Thanks so much!!
I use WASC, it is very sturdy and I have used it for 3d. Also, refrigerating the cake helps it be more solid, and freezing makes it VERY easy to work with!
I will be making a Pirate Ship Cake and a Treasure Chest cake for this weekend and I was thinking about using the WASC Recipe but I do know that Paula Dean has a wonderful Pound Cake Recipe with Cream cheese as one of the ingredients and it is sturdy also
Thank you so much for your help! I will definitely try to pop it in the fridge... do I cover it in seran to do that?
Also... don't laugh at me... what's WASC?? I told you I am a rookie.... haha.
Wasc is White Almond Sour Cream cake it's a doctored cake mix recipe...you can find it in the recipe section here and it is wonderful!
I have used wasc for all my 3d shaped cakes and haven't had a problem
and yes cover your cakes with seran!
