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 icon_biggrin.gif

Warning. This website is highly addictive!

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!
