Using cake scraps

Doing some baking today, mostly to get some practice decorating cakes, and I have large amount of cake left over.

I was just wondering if anyone has something they like to do with their cake scraps? I was thinking maybe some sort of bread pudding, but that's not really one of my favorite things to eat.

Thanks for any suggestions!

How about trifle with the bigger pieces, or petit fours. and if you have a lot of crumbs, take a look at some of these:

I'd be curious how things turn out!

Bread pudding is a good thing to use scraps for and trifle is another tasty way. You might want to make a trifle.

Hi, CC:

How about a trifle?

Never made or had trifle... it's served cold I'm assuming?

It seems like I should combine my crumbs with fruit jelly or liqeuer, and top with pudding and cream, or something similar to that, is that about right?

You can alternate layers of cake chunks/crumbs, pudding, fruit. The pudding base can be flavored with liqueurs or flavorings that compliment the fruit.

Flavored whipped cream can be substituted for pudding if you want. Espresso powder could be mixed in with the whipped cream for another flavor, depending on the other ingredients in the trifle. Let your imagination be your guide.

Yes, it is served cold.

The DW crumbles them up and sprinkles them on top of the icing.

OMG, trifle is the world's best, best, best pudding! You should try it. We tend to have it on Boxing day or New Years day...but its wonderful and there are lots of variations.

Cake scraps in the bottom of a bowl, slosh over some sherry/ameretto/rum....depending on fruit used and prefernce, then fruit, or fruit and "jello" then custard (real thick, vanilla custard!) then whipped cream, then perhaps some srunchy ameretti biscuits and cherries to decorate. I put the biscuits in the bottom layer too, because I like the texture once they get soggy.

Rhubarb makes a nice trifle, or chocolate cake with cherries or oranges for the fruit.

Cake crumbs can be used to...

...make cake balls!
It's the first thing that came to my mind when I saw this post.
Except, I guess it depends on how much cake you have leftover.
Cake Balls - Allrecipes

I know it lists store bought "stuff" but just use your own home-made ones.
