What do you do with your cake off-cutts? Do you just throw them away? It feels like such a waste. My dogs do not want to eat it anymore. Sometimes the kids or my husband will come past and take a piece - if there is also icing left. My mother-in-law said I should put it in the freezer to use for trifle, but I never make trifle and after a while I just throw them away.

Mine go into the trash. I really don't need them around to snack on.

Trash. Straight in the trash. It's work product scrap, just like leftover paint for a painter, wood shavings for a woodworker, yarn bits for a knitter and metal shaving for a metalshop.

Trash. It's all trash.

LOL. I love Indydebi!!!! I put all my scraps into a ziplock bag and straight into the freezer. When I get around to it, usually at holidays, I make a GIANT batch of cake balls and box up a dozen or so for each family member. Cuts down on the gifts I buy at Easter and Christmas and they get gobbled up so quick!! Everyone appreciates the "time" I take to make them. Little do they know they're eating leftovers!!

Normally, I just had a bowl of scraps to my husband. He loves them!

I throw them away (after I taste them), cake balls are just more work for me, but I do like the tops of my triple chocolate fudge cake when I first cut the top off,crispy and hot and oh so good. I always eat me just a bit, ok so I eat the whole thing but it's chocolate icon_lol.gif .

I use them to taste a new combination. So, if I'm making a cake with a certain filling or frosting flavor, I will put them together to see if they taste good or not. After that, I force myself to throw them out because I will eat them otherwise, and that's not healthy.
