I'm looking for a good dense chocolate cake recipe. One that would be good to use for carving? Is pound cake the best for that type of work?
look under recipes on this site. lots of decorators that carve.. use the durable chocolate cake recipe.. the wasc version of chocolate, etc. you won,t have any trouble finding these recipes.. anyone that asks this question. they lead them to these recipes . hth
Google "double chocolate cake", find it on Epicurious.com. To die for. If you are a scratch baker. Important thing, no matter what you use, usually helps to have a chilled or partially frozen cake that you are carving. Helps kep the shape and doesn't crumble and goo up your knife. I can't link to it at the moment, having comp issues.
You will NOT be sorry if you go with this recipe. I promise.
This was the most moist, dense and rich chocolate cake I have ever tasted. I used Devils Food cake mix, and it was seriously to die for!! It carved extremely well when I was cutting my son's cake. It was not crumbly at all.
Thanks for the info!
