I am completely an amateur and only do this as a hobby, but occassionally I have a request (usually by a relative) to do a difficult cake that I'm unfamiliar with. I need to make a cake that involves carving, and thus far every cake I've made is so moist that it will not hold up to the process of carving. Does anyone have any suggestions?

If you've never done any carving before, you probably want to start with a denser cake....something like a pound cake. I usually carve mine when they've been chilled (not frozen) because it prevents tearing and makes fewer crumbs.
