How to save a broken cake AKA Death by Chocolate dessert!

So last week when I had made the Vegan Black Forest Cupcakes, I had originally intended to make a vegan Black Forest Cake.

But as I shared previously on both my blog and on Instagram, I had an epic cake fail:

oh dear.

Since I couldn't bring myself to simply throw away all of that hard work and really, there was nothing wrong with how it tasted, I had to come up with some way to use it.

I took a quick survey of what I had available, and saw that I had all of the requirements for a quick Death by Chocolate Trifle! Cake saved!

These are incredibly easy desserts to make. 

Step 1: Crumble the disastrous cake into a large bowl

Step 2: Whip heavy cream until fluffy, adding a little bit of vanilla and icing sugar to sweeten it up

Step 3: Start layering in a dish: cake pieces, followed by whipped cream, topped with skor bits, repeat! 

Step 4: When your dessert has filled the dish (or as in my case, you are running low on whipped cream), finish off with remaining whipped cream and skor bits

Step 5: Chill until ready to serve

Step 6: Enjoy!

You can jazz up the dessert as well with whatever you have on hand.  The possibilities are endless! You could add a layer of pie filing (cherry, blueberry, etc), or chocolate chips, or maybe chocolate or caramel sauce, etc etc etc!

So if you have a bit of a disastrous cake situation, or you would like to make a delicious trifle for dessert, give this a shot :)
