Freeze them for later

I second trifle - I have made many cake trifles and they're delicious! Sometimes I just freeze the scraps and if I feel like a lazy dessert heat up a couple of pieces in the microwave and top with ice-cream.

You can also make truffle-type balls by adding either icing or cream cheese - so long as you have something tasty that squishes it all together they'll taste good.

a nice tiramsu with choc sponge is always nice too:)

use as a base for cheesecake, just add a bit of booze to moisten then press into cheesecake base. make a baileys cheesecake and then you have a nice compliment to the chocolate.

I've got a nice truffle recipe somewhere using choc cake crumbs. Can hunt it out if you're interested.

Chocolate cake would make a good Black Forest trifle (posted previously)...jam, cherries, chocolate mousse, whipped cream...

Will see if I can find the thread.

if you freeze it, you can cut it up when you have a chocolate fondue!!
mini truffles in champagne glasses and rum balls sounds very good as well.

I would really appreciate your recipe... only if you can find it tho. Cheers.

I do like kiwitrish. I crumble up all my offcuts and mix them together with left over buttercream or ganache icing. Roll them into truffle sized balls, refrigerate then dip in chocolate. HTH

And don't forget the good old Bread and Butter Pudding variations
