I couldn't find my recipe, how did I lose that?! So I used a recipe I have never used before. Ahem....and it fell, like an avalanche, like a 10 pound boulder, like a..... well you get the idea and I have a picture to show you in case you don't!
Later, I looked up how to fix a fallen cake or what to do with one that has. It was perfectly good to eat just looked silly and I really have a hard time throwing food away. I found Cake Balls as a way to save a fallen cake!
Cake Balls are super simple to make; crumble the cake into a large bowl. Stir in frosting. Shape into golf size balls with your hands. Roll in powdered sugar. Super easy, and oh my did they taste good! Everyone loved them and I will probably make them again fallen cake or not!
The frosting can be thick and hard to mix in so only mix a portion of the cake crumbs with a bit of frosting at a time. I also found that dropping spoonfuls of frosting around the bowl helped too. Press the crumbs and frosting together well so they won't fall apart when you roll them in the sugar. It was easy to do and what a great kids project! They would love to make this and I plan to bake a future cake just for this purpose.
My gosh who ever figured out this fallen cake save is a genius! Remember, you don't need to wait for a cake to fall to try it! ;)
