I'm doing my first 3d/sculpted cake this weekend under short notice, and I'm freaking out just a little...any tips for doing sculpted cakes? I'm definitely going to freeze the cakes before biggest concerns are covering the cake in fondant without seams, and transporting it without it cracking/peeling off/falling apart. Any tips? PLease share!!! btw- it's a Thomas the Train cake...there are some great ones in the gallery!

If you don't already use ganache under your fondant, that is a great way to make a 3-D cake sturdy. I don't use a serrated knife when I carve as it can cut out big chunks. Use as sharp of a knife as possible. Take your time and remember you can always take more off. Go slowly. Good luck!

Thanks for the advice...a poured ganache or whipped?
