Other than much myself sick on them, that is? Just done that, so wondered if there was anything desserty I could do with them? It's basically two domed 'lids' cut off full-sized cakes to make them flat.

Trifle, I suppose. Anything else?

Bother. I was going to say trifle. Having said that, we have a freezer full of cake offcuts after the DC and I couldn't eat any more (my cake making season is short but intense grin)

Could you do a sort of tiramisu?

My mate makes a wonderful 'summer' pudding with madeira cake. Line a pudding basin with slices of cake and fill with fruit. Could be your own rasps if you have any or defrosted 'fruits of the forest' from your fave s/market, or even blackberries at this time of the year. Sweat with some sugar in the oven or on the hob just until the juices run and the sugar is dissolved. Pile into the lined pudding bowl and cap with another slice of cake. Weight this by putting a saucer on top and a can of something. Ready to eat after a couple of hours. Wonderful with Greek yoghourt, cream or custard.

Bread and butter pudding is meant to be lovely with cake grin
