I don't like to dump leftovers from our food. So I pondered what to make with the rest of triple ginger cake that was just a bit dried out.
Ding- a-ling! What about using it for a dessert that I had to bring for a party with friends.
I crumbled the cake between my hands until I got tiny crumbs, put them in glasses and soaked them with a tsp of rum. Then I mixed cream cheese, coconut milk, brown sugar and bourbon vanilla and folded in some whipped cream at last. After that I layered everything in the glasses by turns. On top I spread some pistachios - not for the taste but for the eye because I think their taste is not really scrumptious and almost never necessary.
Tadah! It worked and was a highly coveted dessert. And so easy to make.
Btw in the background you can see a 1000 piece puzzle with a retro motive of the American fine artist REX RAY. It's the first puzzle I've ever made since my childhood and it was a nice experience to do something so completely useless again - to play again.
Do you like useless activities sometimes?
Have a nice weekend!
