Use Your Cake Trimmings

Make another dessert with your leftover cake trimmings.
Martha Stewart Living, September 2007

Next time you bake a cake, don't toss the trimmings into the trash without a second thought. Instead, keep them to use as building blocks for another dessert. We saved chocolate-cake scraps and layered them with whipped cream and fresh raspberries for a quick and easy trifle. Freeze cake morsels in an airtight container for up to one month.
