Hi guys, I am a first time cake carver.

Does anyone know of any recipes that are fool proof for carving? Prefer chocolate for this particular project but any suggestions I can 'bank' would be appreciated. Also, can you tell me what types of recipes and what characteristics they should and shouldn't have for carving.

Thank you so much.

A lot of AU and NZ members prefer mud cakes for carving.

Here is a link to a good dense mudcake It is a good one to use for carving. It's better to use a denser cake as it will hold it's shape better.
