The inbly recipes that don't wirk well for wedding cakes are super fluffy cakes like angel food or super wet cakes tire tres leches- otherwise most varieties of cakes work fine for wedding cakes so long as you are using an internal support system. For carving I prefer pound cake or other dense recipes.

For wedding cakes, you can use any kind of cake, as long as you use the correct support. For carving, I would use a denser cake recipe that will stand up to the carving. icon_biggrin.gif

There are some great recipes on this site. For scratch, I use the Hershey's chocolate one if I want to carve- it's the best. For doctored mixes, WASC is a good all 'round carving/stacking cake too... Have fun!
