How To Make 3d Cakes

In this Videojug tutorial Rob, from Confection Perfection, demonstrates how to cut out 3d cakes from a basic sponge layer.

You Will Need

  • 1 dense madeira sponge cake
  • vanilla butter cream
  • sugar paste icing

Top Tips

  • It's important to use the correct type of cake when carving 3d cakes, in this case we are using a densely packed Madeira cake.
  • Keep any spare bits of cake you cut off, as you might need them later, or you can use them in a different recipe.
  • Always carve small bits at a time. There is nothing worse than cutting a big chunk off, then realising you have cut off too much.
