Hi, I was just wondering what everyone does with all the cake they cut off before decorating. It seems like such a waste. Would love to hear what you do with yours.

Thank you
Kerry

Eat it plain or with icing or make cake balls. Scraps in my house are not usually an issue with 4 kids and DH to help out!

What left overs?? LOL! I tend to eat them all but below is a great link to Bakerella's blog which shows how you can turn them into mini works of art:

Depending on the cake, yellow plain cake is good for traditional trifles. Chocolate cake for a chocolate version with cherries and chocolate custard.

cut cake in rounds if there is enough and put ice cream in the middle and freeze. Defrost and decorate with cream and fruit.

Dip chunks in condensed milk and then coconut. Toast it (watch carefully!) or put on skewers and toast over the bbq. Serve with ice cream.

Hope that helps.

Mt Grandson calls them "cake skins" and asks me everyday if I have any! icon_lol.gif

Sometimes I dry them out and process them into cake crumbs in my food processor, then either recycle them back into another cake or use them for pie crusts (like oreo cookie crumbs).

They go right in the trash. After all the years I've logged making cakes, we just don't eat cake.

House painters have leftover paint. Carpenters have slivers of wood. Knitters have small pieces of yarn. All leftovers. All "scrap".

If they don't get ate, they go in the trash...but they usually get ate.
