Can anyone share a firm chocolate cake that would be good for carving? Bonus if it is non-dairy!
Perhaps a mud cake? There are many recipes on this site, but this is the one I've made, and I think it would be quite good for carving.
It's difficult to get a chocolate cake that's firm enough. The other alternative would be a pound cake. I've "created" a pound cake by adding pudding mix to a recipe, which helps firm the cake up a bit.
