Hi I am hoping to make a speedboat cake for a friend, I have checked out lots of the pictures and am just wondering whether you would bake your cake in a loaf tin or a square tin??

I am thinking that a loaf tin would be easier to carve and leave less wasted cake but I really don' know. This will be my first carved cake too!!

thanks in advance for any tips

It would depend upon your recipe. Many recipes will not bake well if you get over 3 inches height. If you use the loaf pan I would use a flower nail and bake even strips. Good Luck

I made a cruise ship cake and the bottom was the same basic shape as the speedboat. I would bake 2 9X13's, stack and carve. A loaf pan is too small (lengthwise) to work with and you need some forgiveness in there in case you mess up!

Hi,

I think they use loaf tin as the cake mould.

This is a very nice speed boat cake.
