I have a groom's cake to do for August 6th... the mother of the groom contacted me via internet (we've talked by phone too) to do a 2 tiered grooms cake in italian cream with cream cheese icing. Now here's the dilemma... I tried out a recipe from the CMD cupcake book... I thought, if it worked for cupcakes it should work in a cake.. Well it tastes wonderful, but when you slice it, it tends to crumble a lot.. I believe it's from using 7 ounces of coconut and a cup of pecans. As far as taste, it's wonderful.. I made the crusting cream cheese icing recipe I got from the recipe section on here for the icing on the cake and it too is wonderful.. I'm just worried about the cake crumbling so bad when cut .. I'm not sure if this would upset the mother of the groom and I'm not sure if I change recipes, if that would even help ... does anyone have a tried/true recipe or know or have any other suggestions of what to do? PLEASE HELP!
