I am making a novelty/3D cake for DS1s birthday and would like your tried and true large cake recipes please. I always make the same chocolate cake (although think I made it choc Orange last year) and just change the shape (decorate in fondant etc) but I want to branch out and do a different flavour this year (not just chocolate or butter cake). The cake should be versatile as I will be using a few different shaped tins etc. And it needs to hold together well.

I know you said not chocolate but I use this White choc cake and sometimes add citrus rind or fresh raspberries.
This is also yummy
It's tricky because you need a dense cake so you can easily decorate it. I would use a mud cake and add flavour and mix up the icing that will be under the fondant.

I usually use the Aldi vanilla cake mix as my base when I'm doing. A big decorating job. It works great in large quantities- I use 4 lots in the big square tin, and can be flavoured with jams or fruit or essences, coloured etc. Has never overlooked yet.

I cheated this year and bought a plain vanilla mudcake then iced it all up how DH wanted it. Normally I make all from scatch but being prego I couldn't be bothered this year

Another chocolate one I know, but I always use this one - I don't put the honeycomb in it but I'm sure it would be yummy with it in there! Oh or some lime would be delish!

Update! The final product. A bit rushed in the end but made about 4 cakes of various shapes to get the final product. There are both strawberry and chocolate layers.

That looks amazing! I'm going to do that for DS birthday this year but I have to pay someone to do mine as I'm not as clever as you are!!!!
