Hi everyone..Is there anyway to doctor a boxed cake mix so that the cake would be suitable for carving? Everytime I make a boxed cake it just doesn't seem dense enough.

TIA icon_smile.gif

I don't know if it's the best, but I use the "durable cake for 3D and wedding" in the recipe section on this site. I think there is also a chocolate version, but have never tried it.

Good Luck!!

Also, make sure your cake is chilled - that will help.

I've carved the WASC cake before. Have you tried that one? Definitely needs to be chilled before carving!

WASC is the "White Almond Sour Cream" cake.

This link will provide LOTS of info:

On page 1, JanH has posted many helpful links about the WASC
On page 2, MacsMom has posted some killer variation recipes
