I don't know how to make them more dense once they are already baked. I would most likely rebake really fast. I always add a half box of instant pudding mix to my batter to make the cakes more dense for carving. I know that doesn't help you now but maybe in the future it might? Good luck, Maybe someone else will have better advice for you! icon_smile.gif

I would freeze right away then carve.

There are some cakes that are not meant to be use for carving. I do suggest you freeze the cake and then carve, just like Karema suggested.
