There are a few bakeries in town that offer a treat called Cake in a Cup...or something similar to the name. When bakeries make speciality cakes, they shave off the tops of cakes to make them flat for decorating and stacking. Instead of throwing away the shavings, they've made a treat that's possibly more delicious than the decorated cake.
Here's my version of Cake in a Cup!
I baked a box of strawberry cake. I baked it in a bundt pan, because it doesn't stick and it was easier for me to crumble.
Crumble up half of the cake with a spoon and put it in a dish. I used a glass bowl so it would be pretty and show through!
I couldn't have any, because it wasn't gluten free :(.
Sidenote:Colin's birthday was Sunday, and we had quite the full day. But I managed to bake him a yellow cake with chocolate icing (his favorite). I usually go all out with the decorating, but because of time issues, he got white chocolate chip lettering!
Happy birthday, Colin! <3
