Leftovers? Yes these were leftovers, but now they are something new and presentable!
Leftovers have always been trying for me. Ever since I was younger, I never wanted to eat the same thing for two meals in a row. For that very reason I think it is important to be creative with leftovers. Now cake leftovers are in a different category, but they still can present a problem. You serve a cake and then a few days latter have someone else over and you can't serve half of a cake. Maybe you can, but it doesn't look very thoughtful if you do. My solution...making something new--Cake Balls!
I decided to take this leftover cake, crumble it, and mix it with some frosting to make cake balls. I scooped the mixture out with an ice cream scoop to form a nice round ball.
I then rolled it in powdered sugar to add some interest and flavor.
Then stacked them into a pyramid and to create a lovely presentation. Be sure to refrigerate these until you are ready to serve. They hold their shape best when cool.
What once was store bought is now a thoughtful homemade treat! Your guests will never know the difference....unless they read my blog (sorry family for ruining the secret)!
