How To Get Rid of Leftover Cake

What? You've never had that problem?

Come on, there has to be at least one instance in all your life when you wanted some dessert but couldn't bear the thought of another bite of that Alaskan-sized sheet-cake.

Ok, well that's the situation I found myself in this week.

We had another graduation party for Mr. H tonight and I was on deck to bring the dessert. We had plenty of sheet cake left from parties earlier in the week. I couldn't bear to eat another bite of cake, but it just seemed too wasteful to throw it all away.

I sliced up a couple pounds of strawberries that needed to be eaten up anyways. Instead of putting sugar on them, I doused them liberally with Godiva liqueur (mom calls this "medicine," we both make sure to have a bottle handy in case of emergencies).

While I let the strawberries soak in their chocolate hooch. I whipped up a pint of whipping cream with yet a little more Godiva Liqueur - again no sugar, it wasn't necessary.

Quantities? I have no idea. Just added till I felt like it might be enough.

Then I took a bowl and made a deep layer of leftover cake, topped it with a layer of drunk strawberries and then topped that with a layer of drunk whipped cream and repeated until everything was gone.

oh my goodness, I think I've got a buzz. Not sure if its a sugar buzz or from all the booze, but I think I'll wait a while before dribing home.

So next time I have leftover costco cake from any kind of event, I know what I'm going to do with it. But next time I think I'll remove a lot of the frosting, that just got in the way.

Wow, that sounds REALLY good! That makes we want to make a trip to the store to get cake, whipped cream, strawberries and Godiva liquour.

This would be great in your upcoming recipe book. I don't think you need to worry about amounts, you can just estimate what you used (or wish you had used.)
