Let's have a serious discussion about Cake Scraps ;-) - Page 3

post #31 of 59
I usually make cakeballs out of mine, but I'm waiting to find a trifle bowl, I didnt want to have to order one online, but having no luck finding one here!

I love the pumpkin mold idea! I did that with some of the candy molds earlier this year, they turned out great!

Most of my cake scraps don't make it past my husband and my kids. I did make cake balls one time though. I used them as a gift for a wedding. It was a cake that did double duty. I have a picture posted with my photos. The design of the cake balls was inspired by Bakerella.

I love the idea to make trifles with the scraps. Although my stomach, butt, and thighs are telling me to throw them away!

I think you could make bread pudding out of the cake scraps. I never thought about that one either but it would probably be really good with a dense cake, similar to a pound cake.

It would have to be a pound cake. Bread pudding is usually made with stale or toasted bread so the liquid doesn't turn it into complete mush. I used to make it all the time when my father was still alive. He LOVED that stuff.

Have you used pound cake to make the bread pudding for your father, Jocmom? I would think you would want to cube the pound cake and let it dry out some before incorporating it into the sauce, but I think it would work.

I probably would work. I never tried anything other than bread in my bread pudding. I use to make it all the time, but I haven't made a batch of bread pudding since my father passed away.

I use the scraps for cake balls, trifles and did you know that Julia Child has a recipe for a cake that calls for several cups of cake scraps?? Cool! icon_biggrin.gif

paulstonia~ you cracked me up.....pot belly pig and 16 year olds!
Yep, I've got one too (16 yr. old that is) and first dibs on scraps are him. Then they go into the freezer for cake balls or trifle. I've even used them to just sprinkle on top of a scoop of ice cream.

Cake balls are where you take the cake scraps and mix them with a small amount of liquid -- either leftover buttercream or flavored coffee creamer or whatever and make a dough out of them. Scoop the dough into balls, freeze for 10 minutes and dip into melted chocolate. Like a cake truffle as it were.

Trifles are made in upright slender glasses or a large glass bowl with upright sides (not flared sides), and you layer the cake scraps with pudding and fruit all the way up to the top. Top with whipped cream and a few cake scrap crumbs and voila -- a dessert to die for! icon_biggrin.gif

Cake balls and trifles are desserts using small pieces or scraps of cake. There are a few recipes in CC for cake balls. Do a search and you'll find them. Yum!!! A good way to use up your cake scaps left over from leveling your cakes. A trifle is a layered dessert, usually small squares of cake with custard/pudding or whipped cream and fruit if you want. I'm sure you've seen them layered in wine glasses.

I should have just waited for you, bobwonderbuns. You did a better job of explaining it than I did. Now, you've made me hungry!

I don't think cake would work for bread pudding--you'd end up with the same result as you'd get if you poured milk over cake. It wouldn't hold up to the liquid--you would also have to do a lot of adjusting to the recipe to compensate for the sugar and fat in the custard for the bread pudding for the sugar and fat in the cake.

I have used cinnamon rolls and yeast donuts in bread pudding before with great results, however. *decreasing the sugar in the custard in this case too*
