For a cake competition, that requires "edible" cake and photos of assembly to prove it is cake, does anyone know a good recipe for a sturdy cake. NO ONE WILL EAT IT, but it must be "cake" and edible.
I have to believe that people who do this have some basic recipe of sturdy cake to decorate and enter for this type of thing. Help?
a normal pound cake?
I've made this recipe for a carved competition cake, the idea being that it's not moist and has no added fats or sugars. It worked well for me. In the pic, the lamp and torso are caved cake using the recipe. You could eat it, but it would be yucky.
1 (any) Cake Mix
3 TB Meringue powder
3 TB Flour
1 c water
Mix together. Batter will be thick, you will need to
spread the batter before baking.
Bake at 350 degrees till browned.

Awesome maybenot! I knew there had to be a recipe for this type of thing. Your genii is incredible. Did you just use an unflavored Wilton buttercream? I guess anything would work for that...or is there some "trick" to the icing too?
Great! Thanks. Can't wait to try it and play with it a bit.

I do the same as rim--an all shortening and powdered sugar American Buttercream without butter or flavoring. I just thin it with a bit of water to get the consistency that I prefer.
Sounds logical and makes sense. Will do! Now I can only hope I can sculpt.
