so I have made a few cakes in my lifetime so I thought maybe I would make a topsy turvy one this time.... I am doing rkt on the bottom and would like to know what to do for the top two layers...

I want to do a vanilla and a chocolate but can you use pound cake or is it too heavy?? If yes I would like really great vanilla and chocolate cake recipes that will withstand my carving, etc. Thanks!!

By the way this is a toy story cake so I will hopefully post the GOOD results when I am done!! Thanks for any and all help. Sarah

I have never made one, but pretty sure you need a sturdy cake when carving so pound cake would be good. Tons of recipes that are star rated on the site. Click on the Recipes tab.

Nothing wrong with a heavy cake; you are going to dowel the tiers beneath it anyway. As minicuppie mentioned, there are great carving recipes here, just type "durable" or "carve" in the search engine to help narrow it down.
