Let's have a serious discussion about Cake Scraps ;-) - Page 2

post #16 of 59
I have a freezer full of cake scraps to make cake balls with, as well as several frozen cake balls and I almost always make trifle for church dinners because I almost always remember the dinners are taking place the morning of--quick way to get rid of a lot of scraps--really though, I need to toss them--how long are they good in the freezer for? My family also does a great job of cleaning them up if I don't get them in the freezer quick enough--I want to try the idea of the pumpkin pan though--sounds like a great way to get rid of scraps!

Is this the same thing as a 16 year old son, cause that's who gets all my cake scrapes. If he walks in a smells cake baking the first words out of his mouth are " is there any I can eat?' An he's skinny as a rail, life is just not fair icon_sad.gif

I try to limit my scraps, but when I have some, I make up cake balls and take to work. Those guine pigs love it. But when I am short on time, I don't coat them with chocolate. Just make balls, place in cupcake wrapper and place in box. Then just melt some chocolate or candy melts in a disposble bag and drizzle. They still taste great and somewhat less rich without all the chocolate coating. I can whip together fast to. Use my cookie scooper or cupcake scooper for big ones.

Right now they get eaten or tossed here.

Has anyone tried Toba Garrett's spackle paste? I recently saw bought her book, and in it she uses spackle paste, a mixture of cake crumbs, bc, and filling, "to give cakes extra stability, structure, and a professional look, especially when the cake has been covered in rolled fondant.". I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but am kinda curious, and would like to get opinions from those who have tried it.

I crumb any that the kids don't eat, and dry for sprinkles on ice cream, make crumb crusts, or use them to make sand and dirt on new cakes.

I can't imagine throwing out the pieces of cake I level off. I put them in small ziplock freezer bags and my family knows when they want cake, they can go get scraps. We're not big on frosting and like to nibble so the scraps are perfect for us. Plus, there is always a variety of flavors available to sampe. Nothing tastes better than frozen white cake scraps.

Yeah I got to many left over most times...I don't/wouldn't throw them out either!
Sometime I make sheet cakes and use the pan that I love the shape of but... it does not bake a nice cake and I use them as a stencil and cut them from the sheet cake so I have a lot left over... to much to throw away.

Funny, I was just reading in my ICES magazine this morning some tips for using cake scraps. Of course cake balls, triffles, and believe it or not pie crusts! (January 2008 issue, page 21)

At the cafe I work at, NOTHING goes to waste. I use cake scraps for....

-parfaits
-cube up choc cake and put them in clear coffee glasses, top with ganache, espresso bc, and a dash of cinnamon
-a crust for cheesecake, and then cover the sides after baking
-a crust for bar cookies (such as a 7 layer bar)
-a base for mousse (we use molds, and then put cake on the bottom)

All these ideas sound very interesting and I'm really thinking about trying them. I'm especially interested in a pie crust out of cake scraps. Does anyone have a recipe for the pie crust? I detest the taste of pie crust but, heck, if it's made out of cake scraps I would probably learn to like pie.

My cake tops get put on a plate for the kids, they know it's fairgame. What doesn't get eaten by the end of the day goes out with the compost. Now, If I have a lot left over...I bag it and throw it in the fridge. 2 weeks later, throw it in the garbage. icon_eek.gif I would love to make use of it, gotta find the time. icon_cry.gif
