i am making a guitar cake and have never "carved " a cake before. what is the best kind of cake recipe is best for carving?.
I've not carved many cakes, but I did do a guitar cake. I just used the WASC recipe in the favorites here, and it held up just fine. It's easier to freeze the cake first, or at the very least have it chilled. It stands up better to carving that way.
Here's the cake I did: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1984012
