I didn't think to add some alcohol! Thar would really kick it up a notch for the Holidays! Thanks!

That's a brilliant idea! oooooh, and I have some homemade salted carmel sauce I could add to the triffle. I swear it has heroine in it, I almost ate the whole 8 ounce container, well, actually I did eat the whole thing one spoonful at a time. icon_redface.gif I'll just have to get some more!!

I have a recipe that I use with left-over cake. I layer it in a springform pan on the bottom; then I put a layer of chocolate ice cream and hot fudge and chocolate sprinkles; freeze that for a while.
Then, a second layer of cake, vanilla ice cream and Heath Bar Brickle (with or without the chocolate...whatever I have on hand); freeze that for a while.
Third and final layer...another layer of cake parts and coffee ice cream...smother in caramel ice cream topping and more Heath Bar Brickle and freeze that for a while.

Best dessert ever! I top the frozen dessert with fancy whipped cream (or you can use cool whip topping) dollops, using a large decorator tip.

This can be frozen for a couple of weeks and it is still delicious!

Note: if you have lemon cake, use sherbets, curds, and baked meringue between the layers!

I give all my cake scraps to my brother-in-law...he eats about 8000 calories a day (literally!) so he is our human trash disposal.

cloetzu, it truly is scrumptious! It is the best way to get rid of all the cake and bits and pieces of ice cream, etc. I have people who pay me $75.00 for a 10 inch frozen concoction with the three ice creams...they love it! AND the decorating is so very easy icon_smile.gif

It's not a recipe....but I often break up chunks of chocolate cake and pour some heavy whipping cream over it, let it sit for a minute or two to soak in and eat! Great 2 minute midnight snack!

Not sure if anyone is still following this thread but here is a recipe for Russian Slice, which I used to love as a kid.  You can change the ingredients to suit your leftovers.

Russian Slice Recipe

12oz Dry Chocolate Cake (any type)
8oz Dry White Chocolate Cake (any type)
2 oz Butter
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
6-7 heaped tsp Seedless Jam
3 Tbsp Dark Rum

 

*Mod edited to remove mixing instructions

A french pastry chef I worked with long ago saved all cake scraps, let them dry out, ground them up in a food processor, and just added them to the next cake!  Resulting in a perpetual cake of sorts, when you think about it. :)

I use leftover cake in trifles!

I crumble it, put it in a feezer bag and leave it on the counter. Then make a trifle with fruit and yogurt/ whipped cream mixed with mascarpone/ greek yogurt!

yes you can make truffles....add more melted chocolate, some rum or brandy and then roll and then dip in melted chocolate.  We used to do this in a bakery I worked at before...people loved them...but I was more inclined to favor the real thing.....but it reduces your waste!! Good luck!!
