Leftover Cake Bars Recipe - Fudgy Coconut Cake Bars - Recipes using Leftover Cake Scraps

I can never waste anything. I hate wasting food. If i see something in food which is about to get wasted, i just use them up and make something spectacular. I take that as a challenge for myself. I totally love it. You all know that i bake a lot and most of the time i find lots of cake scraps, cake trimming getting wasted. So what i do is i put them in a container and freeze them and whenever i want something sweet i can use them up and make so many delicious goodies. SO far i have shared three recipes using these cake scraps, make sure you check them up.

I used chocolate cake and chocolate ganache in them, you can use any cake and frosting as you like. If you have vanilla cake, just add some melted chocolate with it and make these bars..

This is my latest invention. It is a no bake chocolate and coconut bar and it taste so delicious. No body will ever believe that it is made from cake scraps. The combination of coconut and chocolate is perfect and it is like eating a bounty bar. Heaven..

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..If you have anyways of using leftover cake, just comment below, i would love to hear it..

  2. This is like a cake pop in a pan! I had to use more frosting because my leftover cake was dry. My grand daughter wanted to use peanut butter chips for the topping. Yummy way to get rid of left over cake, what I used were leftover cupcakes that hadn't baked right because my husband accidentally turned off the oven. When I noticed and turned the oven back on they were dry and full of holes. I threw them in the freezer, then found this recipe! Thank You!
