I knew from making the recipe so many times before that there would be plenty left over for him. But it was fun to tease him and make like I was going to throw the leftover out. He never left my side while I made that cake. Waiting for it to cool was torture for him.
ROFL!!!

i always make extra and put the leftover in container and store in fridgerator. If not going to bake again soon then I put it in the freezer. I like to have it on hand for when grandkids come over or when I bake one less step to do, just take it out and let it come to room temp and your good to go.

Do you know how long it can be safely frozen?

I have no idea. In my world, it never makes it to the freezer. It doesn't even make it to the fridge. Son #1 can smell it two blocks away and is right at my door for the leftovers.

One month, that's arbitrary...I've never been able to freeze it for much longer. SOMEONE always finds it and eats it...it's never made it to another cake.

Turn the oven temp up and bake faster.

No such luck, I try to keep it down even less these days. Health restrictions and widening at the equator...

I could stand to lose 30-40 pounds myself. I have been losing some weight lately and my doctor is more concerned with that then my being overweight. I don't know why I am losing. I am not trying. I eat more for the diabetes than the heart condition.

Cake Balls

Use it for dipping fruit (i.e. strawberries, bananas). Thin it out with half and half, and add some amaretto. Think fondue.

Profiteroles

Napoleons - bake sheets of puff pastry, cool & cut into squares. Layer with strawberries and thin layer of frosting.

Pipe into cupcakes

Fruit pizza
