I am going to make a Blaze monster truck. They think they want strawberry cake but I am thinking it won't be good to carve. I always freeze before I carve but still seems like it's not a good idea. Help!
if I was doing cakes right now i could carve a fresh strawberry cake because I've done it before and a truck is usually pretty boxy -- no worries for me --
for you if you use a strawberry flavored cake you'll be fine -- just no fresh berries in there
I use the WASC base and substitute strawberry daquari mix as the liquid and then a tablespoon of strawberry extract. The cake is sturdy enough to carve and tastes wonderful.
