Tuesday's Tip


Have you ever wondered what to do with leftover cake when you have just ordered WAY TOO MUCH? We attended a 40th birthday party where there was a lot of cake leftover. Mama Henley told the honoree's friends to cut it in squares or rectangles and freeze it. Then, you can take it out of the freezer as needed. I suggested putting lots of cake out for the garbage men. They love a treat! You could also take it to work, your children's teachers, or just enjoy it for a family dessert! Just make sure you wrap it well to avoid freezer burn and don't leave it in the freezer for more than 3 months. Enjoy!

I dont think we have ever needed to figure out what to do with cake around here! Tho I have often packaged it and given it to neighbours and friends!

I bring it to work. The guys here LOVE it when I bring a sweet treat. It helps me out too because it gets it out of my house and out of my hands!!!

Beautiful cake in the picture. YOURS?

What a pretty cake! I always order a bigger cake than we need and we love to freeze the leftover to share and eat later!

I love that cake! I have frozen leftover cake and it tastes fine later. In Delhi we never seem to have leftover anything!
