Hi, I am new to Cake Central and am a self-taught baker and cake designer. I have just started a business and need a new basic cake recipe for cake carving... sturdy yet moist! I would also like to be able to alter the recipe to create new flavors, etc. Does anyone have any suggestions or thoughts? I would also like the recipe make enough batter to create a cake that serves 25-30 peopleicon_smile.gif!

I'd greatly appreciate any recipe suggestions or advice!

This cake is very popular here on CC and the flavours can be changed to almost anything you can think of. It is in the recipe section.

actually the 50.00 were for 1 and 1/2 recipe. it's a big recipe. the only advice I have is make the filling in advance and see if u need more cornstarch.....when we cut the cake it wasn't as firm as I would have liked it to be. the actual cake was 12 x 16 and it was 3 " deep.
It was really GOOOODDDD!!!!!!
