Hi folks!

I had to do 3-D cake a few days ago and came up with a great way to use cake leftovers. Granted, this would probably only taste good with white or yellow cake:

I cut the cake into bite-size cubes, or broke it into bite-size pieces and threw them back in the cake pan that was already crusty from pulling out the original cake. I kept the oven on but lowered the temp down to 250F and dried the cake pieces into "croutons".

When they were golden brown and super-crunchy, I put them in a plastic storage container for a quick snack. Not too sweet, but they are wonderful. Somewhat like biscotti which are double-baked too!

Let me know if anyone else tries it and likes them! icon_smile.gif

that is a great idea. I was going to make cake balls, but I think I may try this first.

Oooh! good ideas everyone.

Update: I've probably gained 5 pounds LOL

Tried them with:

Cake croutons with ice cream: YUM!! I had chocolate/mocha ice cream. Just a bit...

Cake croutons with a tiny bit of fresh whipped cream, chambord and cut up strawberries. YUM! Like a kicked up strawberry shortcake!!

Cake croutons in a ziploc bag. In the car. On the way out. Great snack!!!!
