Hi All, being new to being on a forum please bear with me!
I have decided to make a Volvo birthday cake for my husbands 40th. I am planning on making 2 of 12" x 6" cakes so that i can stack one on top of the other and carve it. Do i need to chill the cake before carving? Do i need to put supports into the cake? Am i best to make a particular type of sponge cake?
Any advise would be greatly appreciated as these types of cakes are not "normal" in the UK!
Thanks in advance for any help

Chilling cake before carving is better than when it is at room temperature. I do not use support. I use RLB's butter cake. Madeira should do just fine. HTH!
Thanks for the advise, thankfully i have a couple of months to get the planning done
