The best recipe for sculpted cakes is in the confetti cakes book by elisa Strauss. You can also search this forum for the durable 3 d cake. It's ok but not as perfect as the confetti cakes recipe

I don't have that book, but pound cake works very well.

I got mine on Amazon. Sometimes they have it at stores like Michaels or JoAnns - then you can use a 40 or 50% off coupon

Her cakes are amazing and sculpt beautifully. The vanilla cake tastes like a sugar cookie and comes out perfect every time. Especially if you do it in a half sheet pan.

In Elisa Strauss's class on Craftsy, she includes the vanilla cake recipe in the materials, if you can't buy her book in time. Her class is actually very good, I enjoyed it and learned lots about sculpting and decorating 3D cakes from it.
