What about a sweet filling! split cake in hlaf and maybe raspberry jam and a ganache and then a chocolate icing on the top.

Turn it into rum balls.

Use for dessert with sickly sauce to sweeten.

Make a chocolate trifle.

What about sprinkle with sugar and pour custard over for pudding !

How dry is the cake! is it quite moist! maybe you can stab it with a skewer and pour hot syrup all over

Well on a plus side, least you didn't 'accidentally' use salt.
Therefore it is quite savable and the above posters has some really good ideas. :)

I bet you are gutted. All that effort and looking forward to a nice cake for your efforts. I did that once. It was part of the dessert for a sit down meal for 17. Luckily I had made other things but some people were hanging out for my choccy cake even though I hardly knew any of the invited guests. Hope your salvage attempts work.

That is why you need to lick the bowl!

I was going to put mine in the oven one day -tasted it, and yup-no sugar, luckily I could rescue it

Excellent advice.

Of course you can "re-surrect" it!

Dribble it with lots of sugary syrup (decide which tang you like) - or make it into rum balls (again with lots of sugary syrup) - or slice it very thinly and fill or top it with whatever sweets you like.

Or - you could of course - feed it to the chooks or ducks .

and be very happy that you do not have to eat it :)
