What do I do with all the "oopsie" cakes?

post #1 of 15

What does one do with the cakes that didn't exactly turn out great? I'm fine tuning a few recipes & hate to just dump them in the garbage when they don't turn out the best. But then again, my rear doesn't need to get any bigger so I'm really done with eating all this cake lol
What do you all do with your practice cakes or the whoopsie cakes?

Wrap em up, put em in the freezer to be used later in cake balls. Did this tonight with a cake that just did not bake up right. The flavor is great but it did not rise like is should have. No biggie for making cake balls however since the cake will be shredded. Otherwise I just throw it out.

Trash. Having all that cake laying around is not good for my health.

There are some I have used for parts of sculpted cake. If you are not into cake pops then u have to trash or give to someone who does not mind.

I would go a step further and ice them and donate them to a local senior center or children's home if you have one in your area.

.........donate them to a local senior center or children's home...........

Police and firemen also love such donations icon_smile.gif
Unfortunately many senior centers are covered by health dept laws and cannot accept food that was not prepared in non-lisenced kitchens icon_sad.gif

I make cakepops, but I LOVE the idea of frosting and taking it down the street to the Firehouse!

Don't forget your EMS personnel!!!

Another thing that I do is take the scraps and make a trifle with some really good pudding or cheesecake filling. That ALWAYS goes over great! I have people who call me especially for that!

Use them in a crumb cake or make "bread" pudding with it. icon_smile.gif

My 25 year old son chops them up and coats them with dipping chocolte and lets them firm up and eats them. Lol i have taken them to work and given them away.if cake is in my house its just too much of a temptation.
It takes lots of practice and a love of cake decorating .
