I've been a hobby baker for a few years, and I'm going on a Cake Decoration course in September, but I wanted to ask some questions about types of cake.
I'm based in the UK, and I've always made a "Victoria sponge cake" which has always been moist and tasty. Here's the problem, I know that you had a firmer cake for stacked cakes, and carving, but on every cake recipe I've seen the cake looks like a brick and dry!!!
Is there such a thing as a moist light, tasty cake that is good for carving??
I made a cake last year that was dense and "foam like" and we couldn't eat it, it was horrible.
So what types of cake are good for carving, and tasty and moist at the same time? What cakes are popular? Any responses from UK bakers is great too!
