Dense INEDIBLE cake

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am decorating a cake that isn't going to be eaten and I need it to sit out for three weeks with out collapsing or molding. I will also be carving the cake. Does anyone have a recipe for something like this? 

 

This type of cake would be good for teaching classes or competitions that require cake.

 

Thanks for any help!

Why not use a block of styrofoam?

There was a recipe on here some time ago that was a super durable cake, and I think it started with a box mix. I'm pretty sure that bobwonderbuns posted about it but I'm on my phone and can't find it very easily using the search function, and I have a terrible memory. I'll keep trying.

The competition rules say the cake must be real, not styrofoam... but I want to start on it early.

NOT EDIBLE
DUMMYCAKERECIPE
1 (any) Cake Mix
3 TB Meringue powder
3 TB Flour
1 c water
Mix together. Batter will be thick, you will need to
spread the batter before baking.
Bake at 350 degrees till browned.
 
The result is dense & dry, but if it wasn't, mold would be an issue. 
 
I've done this with a commercial white mix from GFS and it worked very well.  It did, eventually, mold under my fondant about 3 months after the competition.

Yep, that sounds like the one I had seen!
