Hard White Cake

Hi All
As per the title, I have been asked to make a hard white cake for a
child's birthday and I would appreciate any ideas or recipes.
My ideas so far are to do something based on meringues or biscuits such
as a deep shortbread cake. Alternatively, I could do a chocolate cake
using white chocolate.
The 'hardness' shouldn't be too hard as the child is only 4 so panforte
would be out of the question.
Thanks for your input.

It could, one of my thoughts is to do a white chocolate cake with white chocolate icing. Another is to do a chocolate mousse and see if I can make it more towards the concrete end of the mousse like spectrum.
Any ideas on how to make the cake part more hard?
Thanks for your suggestion.

You're really testing my baking skills here! I'm not a cake expert, however I'm sure that plenty of people in this ng are! Maybe a solid fruit cake or a good mud cake - you could do a white choc one. Good luck.

Don't you think a 4 year old would simply prefer a simple cake or maybe a cupcake. It is afterall their birthday.

It's the child's specification. Sorry if I didn't make that clear.
It also needs to have an elephant, a cow and a horse on top once again as per child's instructions ...

I have made lots of children's cakes and find their definitions different from adults. When child said "hard white cake" don't you think he meant just a regular white cake, probably 2 layers? I know my nephew at that age didn't think a cake was really a cake unless it was a 2 layer cake.

I think he knows what hard means and he was quite specific in other details such as white and no chocolate.
I tried to make a 'harder mousse' last night using less butter and eggs but it didn't really work out.
I guess it'll be a rice krispie cake then with a secondary cake for the adults.
Thanks to all for their input.

Maybe he just means a dense white cake? Which is to say, a cake that is neither made from a mix nor hand made to world-class standards?

Can you suggest any recipes for dense cakes? Maybe a chocolate sponge but made with white chocolate would do the trick (albeit not dense, but I could ice it).
