What to do with cake scraps... - Page 2

post #16 of 21
You can freeze the cake scraps. Then when you're in a bind for a quick dessert, use them in a Punch Bowl Cake. I don't have the recipe right off hand. But, the Punch Bowl Cake is layers of cake pieces, (you could even use a variety of what you have frozen), pudding and whipped cream and sometimes fruit. This is all layered in a large bowl. I prefer a clear glass compote.

Chocolate cake scraps make good "dirt" for the kiddies dirt and worm desserts.

I also use crumbled chocolate scraps to make a hamburger cake. For the "meat" patty layer, I lightly frost the layer then smash the chocolate crumbs onto the frosting to make it resemble ground meat. I rub the scraps between my hands to crumble them into little ball-like pieces.

i mix my cakescraps with peanutbutter (either smooth or crunchy), dip them in chocolat and cover them with coconut flakes. everybody loves them and the peanutbutter takes out a little bit of the sweetness

Well I tried them with heavy cream instead. They were much better, but still kind of sweet. I prefer a standard truffle over this. If you do make these I would only add a tiny, tiny bit of alcohol. The 2 shots is too much.

I made some very simple cake balls a while back, just taking cake scraps and some leftover frosting and mashing them together and then just rolling them into balls. I let them set up a bit in the freezer, then dipped them in chocolate and then back into the freezer. I got a lot of compliments on them, but the main thing everyone said is that they would have liked them to be smaller, because they were just so rich. If I were to make them again, I'd make them so that people could just pop them into their mouth whole.

One of the bakers at the cake shop I go to suggested drying the crumbs in the oven and using them as a streusel topping. Once dry I wonder if you could use them in place of cookie crumbs or graham cracker crumbs in recipes.

Ali,

That sounds good enough to try! Do you think maybe they could mashed and shaped then baked, kind of like a biscotti cake?

Hummm... I am going to try these ideas!
