Cakes for carving

I am really struggling to  find a recipe for choc cake that carves well.  I have tried 3 different recipes butl they crumble when trying to carve into shapes. 🙁


I use the BBC good food website,their rich dark chocolate cake (wedding cake ) is to die for. I use this for all my chocolate cakes and it carves and holds up really well. with very little crumb. Hope that is helpful



I use lindy smiths fudge chocolate cake recipe. I find it holds up well and carves fine


Thanks everyone – I will look these out and give them a try  🙂
