ACan I use a boxed pound cake for a topsy turvy cake? The recipient says to make it in a bundt pan, can I make it in a regular 12" cake pan?

AI read your other post, which I assume is regarding the same cake. A three tiered topsy turvy?

Personally, I wouldn't use a box mix for a carved cake. I've never tried the pound cake box mix so I can't tell you if it's dense enough. I would suggest doing a small tier test, at the very least to make sure it's sturdy enough.

You can use whatever pan size you want, I wouldn't use a bundt pan though. A heating nail/core is a good idea for larger tiers.

You don't have to freeze or refrigerate, it does make cake carving easier in my opinion. Do what works best for you.

AThanks for responding. I'm going to try it out and hope for the best. There is a box of pudding mix in the recipe and from what I've seen on other posts, that makes it more dense. I've never made a cake from scratch and am afraid to start on this cake :).
