I'm looking for a recipe for a firm cake that isn't pound cake. I'm hoping to find something tried and true, since I'll be kind of time pressed that day and won't have time for a do-over. I'm making a 3D cat cake out of the Wilton stand up lamb pan, and have heard stories about heads falling off when cake mixes are used.

Hubby (who the cake is for) likes strawberry cake, but I'm thinking that's a disaster in the making.

Any white/yellow (or even chocolate) recipes out there? If pound cake is the only way to go, just let me know and I'll get over it! icon_smile.gif

Try this one - it is a beautiful, dense mudcake. It's very easy to make too.

Why not use strawberry buttercream as the 'glue' between all your pieces to give the strawberry flavour too?

Looks yummy. Think the cat's head will stay on?

It might not be a bad idea for me to do a run though, the weekend before. His birthday is three weeks away. I can poke and prod it to see if it'll stay together.

I think it should stay on - I'd probably stick a few bamboo skewers through the area just in case! icon_smile.gif
