I bought a slab of chocolate sponge to make DD1's birthday cake and there is a large amount left over.
Does anyone have any good ideas for what I can do with it? Something Christmassy is preferred - I was thinking making something similar to rum balls

Trifle? Defrost some frozen raspberries, cream, the broken up cake, all in a bowl, leave in fridge overnight then decorate with a crumbled flake

I have a recipe for Chocolate rum truffles that uses chocolate cake as a base. Very rich.
1 chocolate sponge (about 350g)
1 tin condensed milk
1/4 cup rum
1 Tblpsn instant coffee
1 Tblspn cocoa
Milk or dark chocolate
Crumble the cake. Dissolve the coffee and cocoa in the rum. Sprinkle over the cake crumba nd mix to combine. Stir in condensed milk a bit at a time until mixture forms a thick dough (I usually find it needs most of the tin, but it depends how moist the cake is).
Refrigerate mix for 1 hr. Roll tspns of mix into balls. Refrigerate or freeze the balls to make the, eaiser to dip. Dip in melted chocolate them roll in sprinkles. Alternatively, you can roll non-frozen balls in coconut, like rum balls.

Black forest trifle, seeing as cherries are in season. Trifle always seems Christmassy to me.

I freeze 'extra' cake (eg, when I bake a cake I chop it in half to eat to avoid hubby and I gorging unnecessarily) and later use it to make cake pops or trifle.

Kate Hudson, 22, was on a dream European holiday with friends. She didn't realise she was about to become a mum.
Maybe the mum I saw in that waiting room, seemingly disconnected from her baby, doesn’t have the support she needs.
