Reusing Cake is a Piece of Cake!
It’s hard to come across someone who doesn’t enjoy a piece of cake now and then. Unfortunately, creating these tasty treats can yield a lot of trim waste, especially when making a cake that isn’t shaped exactly like the pan you bake it in. Below are a few quick ideas of things you can make with your cake’s trim waste.
- Make cake pops. Ball up the cake and cover with frosting for some cake to-go.
- Make “cake sand.” Crumble leftover cake onto a parchment-paper covered pan, then bake at 200° for 2-4 hours. Use the toasty goodness as a garnish on other cakes!
- Make trifle. Put cake, cream or custard, and fruit in a large cup or bowl to make this English dessert.
- Freeze it and Save it. Of course, if you don’t want to use it right away, you can always freeze your leftover cake and save it for a later project.
