I just baked a cake and it's too sugary what can I do now?
You can turn it into a beautiful trifle using unsweetened whipped cream and berries. Layer the whipped cream, cake crumbles, and fruit in a big bowl or individual glasses.
The flavor of cake may have something to do with what you can actually use but you can use unflavored whipped cream, Greek yogurt, sour cream, or even drizzled straight black coffee over the top on almost any flavor.
Make it into a truffle layering crumbled cake, whipped cream, & sliced fruit. If it's a chocolate cake, try pouring a cup of cold coffee over the cake layer and then a layer of chocolate or vanilla pudding, whipped cream, Repeat layers and then a little shaved chocolate on top
I've done variations of this with gingerbread, white cake, yellow cake, spice cake, and chocolate cake. The whipped cream and pudding tones down the sugary cake. Try this and you may have your new favorite dessert!!.
Add a nice tart citrus frosting like lemon.
