When making a cake, I always level them before icing so that they’re neat and don’t collapse. Because I level them, I always end up with extra pieces, scraps, that aren’t very pleasing to eat or look at. Of course, you can eat it by yourself, but you can also make a delicious dessert out of it. Yesterday, I tried to make a good use of them by making a very easy dessert out of cake scraps, a packet of chocolate pudding and an apple only.
Serves 4-6 people
Approx. 15 minutes to prepare
All you need is:
- an apple (you can always use more, depends to you)
- a packet of chocolate pudding
- cake scraps (I used Yolanda’s recipe for vanilla cake)
- Break the cake scraps in small, bite-size pieces.
- Peel and core the apple, then cut it in very thin slices.
- Slightly cook the apples with butter in a pan. Make sure that your apples are not crunchy and that they’re softened. Then put them aside.
- Prepare the pudding and take out the plate that you want to use.
- Pour some pudding and spread it to the bottom of your plate. The layer in the very bottom will work as a sort of glue.
- Casually throw some of the cake scraps, make sure to cover up most of the pudding.
- Layer pudding, cake and repeat until you’re left with only apples.
- After this it’s all about decoration. You can make a rose in the center, like I did, or throw the apples ramdomly to get the messy look.
- Making the rose is very easy. Fold one of the roses in the center in a cylindrical shape (this will be the bud). Then simply wrap other slice around it. You can use some pudding as glue or tuck some pieces in to make it look more realistic. Arrange the slices around the rose to make the leaves.
- Voila, your dessert is ready! Bon apetite!
