Here are four delicious ways to put the cake to use. There were many more, but I finished the cake meanwhile. So just these for now.

#1 Trifle

A trifle is a clever idea to disguise cake scraps as gourmet dessert. Using leftover cake scraps, layer in cups either in chunks or cut circles, Layer it with whatever is at hand like icecream, nuts, jelly, custard, pudding, cake/cookie crumbs, and so on to convert it into a trendy looking dessert.

#2 Chocolate Dad

The best way to enjoy your leftover chocolate cake is to eat it with vanilla icecream. Just add a layer of cake and crushed cookies or busicuits and top it with icecream and some choco-trimmings to make a flavoursome dessert.

#3 Shake

When in doubt, take any leftover cake scraps and toss them into a blender with ice cream and milk for a sinfully delicious cake milkshake.
#4 Parfait

This is a clever idea to make use of the leftover cake minus the icing. Just combine multiple ingredients like cake pieces, crumbs, pudding, cookies, icecream, etc. as add ins to make it look beautiful and delectable.
