Running Short on Frosting?

If you are short on frosting for your layer cakes, just fill in the layers with jam, jelly or marmalade. Tastes great!

Yes, jams and fruit preserves between cake layers can really snazzy up a cake. Your guests might think you're serving them some family heirloom cake recipe. When all you've actually done is tried to stretch your icing or frosting!

Also, if you see you're running short on frosting. Instead of baking your cake in an oblong baking dish or in 2 round cake pans, opt to bake it in a Bundt pan or ring shaped cake pan. This way, when the cake is cooled. You can warm or add some warm milk or other liquids (a liqueur, food coloring, etc.) to your frosting to give it a pouring consistency. Then drizzle it over the top of your Bundt cake. Make the most of what you have. You can still sprinkle colored sugar, chopped nuts, toasted coconut or chocolate curls over the top as garnish, if you wish.

To make chocolate curls: run a vegetable peeler over a plain chocolate bar.
