Ok a friend wanted a cake shaped like a converse shoe, but I don't have a cake recipe that has the right texture to sculpt it ala Ace of Cakes style. I have been makeing the Duncan Hines mixes and adding pudding it comes out very moist and tasty but not stiff enough to sculpt. Any recomendations?

Quoting Violet:



try a simple pound cake type of recipe. they tend to be a little firmer that box cake. If you need a recipe let me know I make it with creamcheese instead of sourcream

My customers love this pound cake recipe. Just google Elvis Presley's favorite pound cake. I do alot my vanilla pounds with this recipe. Or here is another favorite. You can alter flavorings and half it. 



























2 boxes white cake mix
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 teas. salt
8 egg whites
2 2/3 cups water
4 Tbls. vegetable oil
2 cups (16oz carton) sour cream
2 teaspoon clear vanilla flavor
2 teaspoons almond extract
Directions
Mix all dry ingredients  first in a very large mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and beat on low speed for 2 minutes. Bake at 325 degrees

Instead of pudding, to keep your cake moist, make the cake and freeze it for 1 or 2 days before you need it. Then cut out the shoe while the cake is still frozen, ice the cake and then refrigerate it. It will be much easier that way.

I once made a cake in the shape of a volkswagen bug.  I used the Duncan Hines mix with milk instead of water (it helped with the moistness, but not too moist)  I then froze the cake before attempting to sculpt.  It made the process real easy.  Then I just covered it in buttercream and then marshmellow fondant.  It turned out awesome.

This cake sounds wonderful.  Do you know how much it yeilds?  My pan calls for 6 2/3 cups or 2 boxes.  Should I double your recipe?



Thanks!

when the cake is done baking and it is cool to touch place it in the fridge over night to. they next day take it out and put your filling in if that is what you are doing. then stack your cakes on top of eachother placing a small thin layer of icing around it to hold it in place. Put back into the fridge to chill and then you can cut and mold it hte way you want. I will post a pic in the pictures of a michael jordan shoe to show you

Have you tried freezing your cakes first then scuplting?  I also freeze mine for a week or two then it makes it easier to sculpt into any shape you want... have fun...
