Hi everyone! i am a self taught baker who has a background in Art, so i do a ton of sculptured cakes, infact i prefer them...but unless im using pound, which not everyone likes, i have issues carving. I seemed to be alright with the fondant aspect-but i suck at the baking aspect. does anyone have any ideas on types of cakes i can make that will carve well? I've heard alot obout madiera sponge...yes? no? or even adding cream cheese of sour cream to boxed mixes to make thems tronger and smoother? it super hard to google this :/

any help all of you amazing bakers out there may have for me is mucho appreciated! I can do anything as long as i have the instructions! hahaha

Have a wonderful day and look forward to your responses,

I made 2-3D Cakes in the last few weeks and used the Vanilla/Butter pound cake and the Durable cake for 3D cakes in Chocolate both in the recipe section...Both are very strong and taste good.The chocolate barely crumbed but the pounds cake was messy..but sturdy...Nice flavor too..The pound cake seemed hard when it was cold but once room temp was very moist.These are both recipes now I will use for 3D cakes...

Sorry to go so far off topic, but I noticed your sig listing the names of your children. My father's name is Mitchell and my mother's name is Dellena, which sounds similar to Delaney! Super weird!
