I have a cake to do for a party Friday the 30th. It will be a full size dog wearing a team jersey sleeping next to a soccer patterned water bowl. The cakes I have thought of are a WASC and a flavored sponge cake, but I just found out that some of the people have allergies to nuts and raw eggs. The raw eggs aren't a problem.The cake will be ganache, buttercream, and fondant, chocolate pudding (the dog will be dirty), and piping gel icing. I am stumped on what cake to use for the carving though.

Sugarshack has a durable cake recipe on her blog. It's on her website SugarEd Productions. I've also heard that the WASC variations are sturdy enough for carving and also it's best to freeze before carving.

I always carve WASC cake and it stands up well! There is also a lb cake in recipes that works well and the Hershey's choc cake holds up well to carving too!

The WASC won't effect a nut allergy....you can leave the almond flavoring out if your worried about that

What about the Madeira Cake from LYNSEYG? And can confection sugar sub for castor sugar?
