Hello from Brooklyn! My name is Sarah, and my blog, Tales of Expansion, is all about hunting down good food (especially when it is free!) and making sure that every morsel gets used in a delicious way. My recent birthday-baking project is a prime example. Upon noticing that my freezer had taken up an ever-expanding collection of amazing and rich baked goods from various work and school events, I knew I needed to address the situation. I chopped all of the fruity baked goods I had collected (blueberry and pumpkin muffins, oatmeal raisin cookies, yellow cake, and more) into cubes and immersion-blended them into a modified batter based on this recipe for strawberry layer cake from Cooking Light.
The result was a deliciously moist, healthy(er), and festive dessert perfect for my May birthday. Not only did I not spend a penny to make this cake, but I also managed to move nearly a pound of sugary baked goods out of my apartment without wasting a single crumb 🙂 Remember, next time you have leftover desserts that you do not want to eat all by yourself, there is a solution that doesn’t involve the trash can!
