So we have already talked about our scrap bowl (https://nyccakegirl.wordpress.com/2011/05/02/what-is-the-scrap-bowl/). Our staff likes to snack from it, really who wouldn’t. But there are other uses for cake scraps as well. Here is my step by step on how to make “cake loaf”. Sounds kind of gross right? It’s delicious! Just not as “pretty” as one of our regular cakes, still tastes the same though. 🙂
Today’s loaf will be made with red velvet cake (recipe courtesy of our friend Elisa Strauss of Confetti Cakes) and our delicious cream cheese swiss meringue buttercream.

this sounds soo delicious! must remember to try next time i have scraps!!!
Sounds yummy. Another good idea, if you want it to look a little bit nicer is to process the scraps in a food processor. If the scraps have buttercream on them shape them into little balls, roll the balls in grated coconut and refrigerate. If they don’t have any filling, combine the cake crumbs with some yummy filling and then shape into balls.
We make cake pops! Freeze the scraps and when we have enough of one flavor make balls and dip!
I miss the cake bowl!
