Those are all great ideas and I thank everyone. Now I want to explain the "fun" part. The first pictures are of the cake I made and the ones below that are how much "leftover cake" I am actually talking about! I made the vanilla sheet cake because that is what they first wanted and then changed to chocolate. The extra chocolate sheet was because I wasn't sure what I needed to make the "cubes" and it needed to be a certain height. You learn to always make too much when doing specialty cakes.....it beats baking a new one two hours before it is due (and I have done this).

The cake with the white in it is from the one I used for the booties. Because I could use a tall biscuit cutter for the rounds, it was easier to fill and stack, then cut (like you were mentioning Dave and PF).

All the icing will definitely get used with Christmas coming (I have seven cupcake orders coming up).

So, Andy, Uncle Bob, you can expect your parcels shortly!

Can you use the leftover cake pieces to make a sort of bread pudding?

Any of your creations would make a lovely donation to a soup kitchen.

While it was a real challenge to get those blocks done, I think this is one of my favourite projects - the bright colours and the fact it is for a baby shower, you can help but get inspired!

Wow, you came up with a great solution! Those blocks look really cute.

I'm a cake decorator, too, and from what I can tell, cake balls are becoming a huge fad. Have you seen this book?



It's full of cute designs, and they're all about using up cake crumbs. It's a lot like your cake blocks.

I'll have to give it a try myself someday!
