Hey guys, I am wondering if you guys can help me figure out if one is better over the other or if they are equally good. I use mud cake for my carving and the price adds up because of the amount of chocolate required. So I am trying to figure out if chocolate pound cake can be a not so expensive alternative.
I use a chocolate mud cake for carving too. I find that the taste is just so much better than a chocolate pound. It is so much richer. You can use the bits for cake pops and they are divine! The pound cake will carve well too but if they ask for chocolate, I always go with the mud.
Thanks Carmie! I agree on the taste mud cake tastes much better. Just wanted to have,an alternative when the client doesn't want to pay for mud cake
Pound cake carves very well. It might be a cheaper alternative but by the time you carve a cake, there are hours and hours of your time involved. My cost is the same whether it is mud or pound. $10 in ingredients is essentially a drop in the bucket when it comes to a carved cake. Now if I'm making a regular tiered cake or something, then there is a price difference with that.
Exactly my thoughts Carmie told them that the size of the cake doesn't change much and with car cakes one needs a minimum size. I told them that I will look into alternatives though I wasn't sure if I can find any. I guess mud cake is the way to go since it wouldn't make sense to compromise on taste just to save 10-15 dollars
