What do you do with your cake scraps???

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.

The scrap bowl...
Step 1: Line a plastic container with plastic wrap.
Step 2: Take scraps from the bowl and pack firmly in the container.
Taking a break from filling my cake loaf so I can smile at Ron who decided to pick up my camera and start taking pictures.
Robin couldn't help but jump in and start eating scraps from the bowl.
So the last step is packing it all the scraps in, nice and tight. Cover the top with the plastic wrap, put on the lid and put it in the fridge. To serve, take out of the fridge, unwrap the plastic, put it on a plate, let the loaf get to room temperature (about 1.5 hours) cut and serve. It looks a bit like marble cake....but much, much better!

  1. 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.
