Hi Carol, got your message re ice skate cake and a cake suitable for carving. You might want to consider putting this as a discussion on the main forum too. That way you will reach loads of members all over the world who may be able to help you. Meanwhile, my suggestion is this - you can carve a Vic sponge as long as it's good and cold. Make your cake, fill it with whatever you use and put it in the fridge for at least a couple of hours (overnight even better). If it starts to crumble as you're carving, put it back in the fridge for a bit. It can be a bit tricky though. So as it's your first time, you could try using a Madeira cake or add a packet of vanilla pudding mix to your Vic recipe (something like Angel Delight or I use Teco's own - http://www.tesco.com/groceries/Product/Details/?id=256546647
