Exclamation Mouldy Cake

I bought a lovely Taro cake from Manchester, I kept in the freezer and now when I wanted to eat it I find out it has mold grown throughout it. Is there anything I can do with it other than throw it away? I was a nice cake and I got on Chinese New Year and I really do not want to throw it away.

awww, Foodie, I'm sorry this has happened to such a special cake. You did the right thing to freeze it so I can't understand why there is "mold throughout". I, personally, would not try to save it since it's throughout. It's not like you can cut it off.

I don't even try to cut mold off from food. I just toss it. Meanwhile, check your freezer temperature. The mold may have started before you even got it home if the seller didn't store it properly.

What do you mean? What can you possibly do with moldy cake but throw it away?

Break it up and throw it into your yard. You will have the healthiest birds in the neighborhood!

Was your Taro Cake sweet or savory? I had to Google to see what is a Taro Cake.
Not that it matters if it's full of mold, the birds will not care.

Some bread molds are toxic to birds and can make them sick. I wouldn't give it to anyone, or anything.

What color is the mold? If it's green, just get rid of it!
