Finger Food by claremanson Finger Food by claremanson
Orange sponge cake fingers on sticks with melted white chocolate, various sprinkles and Cadbury Flake pieces.

I hate leftovers so today decided to use these off cuts of cake to make some cake fingers with the kids. It was great to get the kids involved in baking and decorating. My youngest helped whisk the sponge mixture but got a little annoyed when the mixture stuck to the whisk and managed to flick it all over herself. Both kids were a little less messy when it came to adding the sprinkles and seemed to add more sprinkles to their mouths than the cake.

The funny thing is, we spent so much time with the off cuts of cake and made so much of it I never got around to making the cakes I was planning on decorating today, instead I had to freeze the main cake so I can continue with my original plan another day.

Looks really tasty. :)
Do you give some of these to your neighbors? If you do, they must enjoy this a lot.

not my neighbours no one in my street really talks to each other like they do where i used to live. I give it to my family and friends and if i am really stuck with lots of leftovers my husband takes it all to work.

Can I a silly question? How easily do these break apart? It seems like a nice treat for little kids. I just don't want it getting too messy. XD I like the idea of putting a stick through them too~ :heart:

not very, they are all the edges of a square cake, the edges of a square cake in my oven cooks a lot more so goes kind of harder around the edges (my favourite part) so it all hold together great, even when you put them on sticks.

Once upon a time, somewhere on the wonderful mess of my pastry experience, I made sponge cake tied with orange color, gave it orange taste and crusted it with a bit of orange-perfumed icing. It was ball-shaped, then I cut it like it was orange sections. I won't offend the Zinternet with the pic of my result, but I'm sure you can have a very nice and neat result :-)

Aww they look really nice :) I love cooking with my nephew, although he does have a rather limited attention span and tends to get bored easily. Your kids sound so sweet :giggle:

I'd be afraid to eat sprinkles that look like ball bearings, but the rest look tasty!

thanks yes, it was a lot more of a success than when i tried baking with them at the weekend, i think they are starting to learn to be a bit more patient (and i distracted them with the Wii while the cake was baking!)

That's great that they're learning patience; lord knows we all need it sometimes. And nice use of the mom-distraction tactic! :D
