What do you with your cake scraps?

Forum: Cakes & Cake Decorating

I thought I would just start a strand to see some of the many different ways we use up our cake scraps. This is one way I use up my cake scraps! Top them with St

Psalm 127:1 Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain.

That’s a clever use of cake scraps. My Dad & Son eat my cake scrapes and left overs LOL :-)

Great idea! I don’t charge for cake tastings, so i use the biggest tops off of cakes i trim, and have never gotten a complaint.

I usually sandwich mine with leftover buttercream or ganache and eat them at 2am with a cup of tea because I need a sugar rush… which is why my clothes are getting tighter. lol 😄

i freeze my scraps and use them to make cake balls!

Calli Creations ...

Ditto Lizzie’s Cakes …. except my hubby devours them… 😂😂😂
but usually cut up into blocks and freeze as my brood of grandchildren LOVE them!! I also crumb some and freeze and use as sand grains or soil. :)
Really love what you do with yours!!
I make trifle often for family dinners and get together…and also use for that. It’s a family favourite xx

Cake pops!

On a serious note, I do have another purpose for my cake trimmings. During winter I use them to feed the ducks and geese on the local duck pond. The RSPB recommends feeding birds cake instead of bread because of the fat and sugar content. And it saves me from having to buy bigger clothes. lol

Sandra Smiley ...

That is brilliant, Lizzie! Makes perfect sense, but I would have never thought of it!

Lizzie's Cakes ...

They love the Victoria sponge Sandra. Apparently fruit and nut cakes are the best but they also benefit from the sugar and fat. It’s very therapeutic too… at least until the geese get angry and impatient and start bullying you for more. lol 😂

I love this idea LIzzie’s cakes! I will have to keep it in mind (and make room in the freezer!)
