Use a good sturdy cake (pound cake, WASC, etc.)
Remove only a little bit at at time....you can always carve more...but it's really hard to put it back!

Someone here on CC suggested this cake recipe for the first cake I carved, (the bass cake in my photos) and it worked great! Like dmo4ab said, remove only a little bit at a time and you should be fine. Can I ask what shape you'll be carving? It might also be a good idea to do a practice run before hand.
