What do you all do with the practice cakes you have made? I don't sell yet and do not want to eat them. I am on a DIET! lol I don't want to throw them away.

You can give them away to friends and neighbors, for a church function, retirement homes, send to work with hubby, teachers if you have kids, shelters are always good.

Hope this helps

Donating them to homeless shelters, food pantries or drug treatment facilities can go a long way to brighten some other peoples' day.

I give them to ANYONE who will take them. As long as they arent here. I wanted to try out a new choc. cake receipe, so i made a couple 6 inchs. Well my one friends came and pick up one but other person who was supposed to take cake number 2 didnt show up. After 1 1/2 days my willpower crumbled and I ended up eatting the WHOLE thing over the weekend!! (ugg so ashamed lol) I hope you have more willpower than I do!

I either use dummies, or if I want to try a new cake recipe, I keep a small portion (make a 6" cake for the family) and give the rest to the teachers at my kid's school. They never get enough appreciation (or a big enough paycheque), IMHO.
