If this is this just for a flat cake with cute little decos, will be fine. I have never tried to carve a WASC, but others have with good results.

Hi there, if you can get hold of Alan Dunns Wedding Cake Bible from you library, there is a recipe for a High Density sponge,. This is the only recipe I use and everyone goes mad for it. I use it for cakes that have to be carved, and also cup cakes. Everyone I have made cakes for rave about the sponge. It is firm, but so moist and he gives the list for variations of flavours. If you cant get hold of this book, I will post recipe for you
