Waste not.....Want not.....

If you've ever carved a cake, you'd probably understand there is always leftover cake, reduced to crumbs usually. One very good thing I learned while working down at the bakery was to never waste anything, if you can help it. Invent something new! You never know it might be the next chocolate chip cookie (that was the world's luckiest accident!)So back to leftover cake! About a week ago, I made a couple cakes for my niece's baby shower; I made a yellow and a red velvet. I ended up with about 3 cups of cake leftover, so I put it in a zip lock and threw it in the freezer for a rainy day. Today came along and it was a very rainy day. So I pulled out my frozen cake and commenced to conjior up something delicious. With bread you can bake a delicious bread pudding, so I decided to try a cake pudding. Along with the cake I added some milk and eggs to make a batter and then decided to take Rachelle's advice (thanks for the suggestion!) and I tossed in a bunch of chocolate chips and coconut. I then baked it at 350 degrees for about 30 mins. While it was baking I whipped up some fudge frosting and toasted some coconut for the topping. Wallah!!! Perfecta Mon do!! My new favorite dessert (and Dylan's)!! and surprisingly enough (because of the red velvet) It was Pink!!!!

That looks like you had lots of fun!

BTW- The pictures are very cute and the desserts look good- but if you had better quality pictures- it would look like I could actually eat the desserts!
