Okay, so I need to know what the best type of cake is good for layering? I need a 3 layer cake so I can make a "wooden" box for a pirate themed cake. I need it to be 4.5-5 inches tall so I figured I would need about 3 - 1.5 inch to 2 inch cakes.

I have never used pound cake for anything. I was wondering if this would work? I am making two "wooden" boxes that are 10x10 and 5 inches tall. The "boxes" will be stacked onto one another (which I know about stacking just not layering)

Thank you SO much!

The boxes should look like this...

Hi, I normally use genoise sponge for these types of cake. Make sure you flavor it with some type of liqueur i.e. Gran Mariner, Frangelica, etc. then freeze it first before using sculpture. It's a bit more work but is worth the effort and has worked for me in the past and is my go to cake for these kinds of cake. Good luck...
