I need a firm but moist cake recipe for my birthday

UnrealCaker | Jun 17, 2013 01:59 PM

I've made a birthday cake for my father, he loved it but I didn't from my aesthetic point of view. I followed this recipe
everyone found it successful I made it and it tasted wonderful, however my problem was the cake breaks apart easily, even after refrigerating to harden, I ended up breaking it in when I tried to take it out the pan and when I was trying to frost it.
My Birthday is in 3 days and I'd like to make a very special cake for myself. I consider making cakes in art since I like making designs for them.

I've also tried the syrup soaking/tres leches, they really aren't effective if the cake itself doesn't have any flavor. Heck I put some strawberry syrup/milk onto my Dad's cake and it tasted even more flavorful, but on other cakes it doesn't really have a flavor.

I also want to attempt to make a cake like this
