My dad LOVES Italian Cream cake and I was hoping to make one for his b-day. he also loves dragons. Can I make the italian cream cake into a shaped cake? I just wondered if this sort of recipe would hold up! Thanks!

You can.. but I wouldn't try to carve too much.. You COULD however try a Italian cream cake that starts with a mix... The Cake Mix doctor has one in it icon_smile.gif

Personally I avoid coconut and pecans when I am doing a carved cake. Those cakes tend to be a little more moist and the knife will catch on coconut and pecans, which tends to having pieces tearing off.

You could try an unconvention baking method like baking in soup cans instead of cake pans to get your shape. I just made a 3D dog cake the other day using a large cupcake for the head and a regular size soup can for the body. It worked great and I hardly had to trim any pieces. Think outside the box!

My italian cream cake recipe:
1 box yellow cake mix w/ pudding, eggs, oil and water
1 cup sour cream
1 2/3 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chopped pecans.

Prepare cake mix as directed on box. Add sour cream, pecans and coconut. Pour into treated pans, Bake....
