I just finished a red velvet cake and i made WAY too much frosting. Is there anything that i can make besides cake to go with cream cheese frosting??

I watched a foodnetwork show the other night that had a guy that was making banana bread cakes and covering them in cream cheese icing. I know you said no cake.... but it was basically just a banana bread in a double layer design.

Let us know how it is if you try it! icon_cool.gif

get a spoon and eat it!! j/k!!

Get chocolate graham crackers and spread between to make a sandwich and freeze them - better than an ice cream sandwich!

Make Cinnamon Rolls

Freeze it and use it later.

I really like the graham cracker idea. Just this week I gave a friend one of my cake tops with the leftover frosting. It is good to have someone eat the cake tops for you.

Those graham cracker sandwiches are my favorite treat ever!
My mom was a cake decorator back in the early 80's and we got those made up from all the leftover icing! YUM!
I like them just as well now! (And they have chocolate and cinnamon crackers too!)

slop it between two soft batch chocolate chip cookies....... YUMMY!!!! I think the Great American Cookie Company does this and calls them "Dinky Doozies"...

Spread it on saltine crackers, or pretzels. Salty-n-Sweet yummm! I don't know if it would work, but you could spread some on the big pretzel rods then dip in chocolate.

This may sound a little crazy icon_confused.gif but...... My mom used to make these cookies with her leftover frosting (or as kids sometimes we'd make frosting just so we could eat them):

Break one full graham cracker in half or onto quarters. Spread each side with leftover frosting. (Chocolate frosting was our favorite.) Then press both sides of the frosted graham cracker into a plate of crushed corn flakes. Put them on a plate, cover with plastic wrap and let them set for a couple hours before eating. (Letting it rest for a while makes the graham crackers and cornflakes soften up a bit.) They really are very good!! You can also add chopped coconut, nuts, sprinkles, mini chips or whatever you wanted to the crushed cornflakes and it makes them extra special. icon_biggrin.gif

Once in a while I'd take these cookies to school in my lunch and I'd always get asked what they were. So I'd break off a piece and let my friends taste it, and they always liked them. When I told them what the cookies were made of, they'd have a look of disbelief on their faces! They, however, usually wanted me to bring more the next day!

sorry you said no cake.... how about dipping pretzels in it? I have heard of this many times before. I know a lady who dipped the pretzel in the cc frosting and then covered it in chocolate!

Hi all,
I was reading the posts to this thread when people were mentioning graham crackers. I have NO idea what these are as we don't have them so I looked them up on the internet. Wilkipedia states that they were originally invented as part of a diet to repress your carnal desires !!!!!!!!!!! So any of you using them for your cakes - are u feeling repressed???!!!
