Meatballs with cheese sauce.
I remember watching an episode of Dinner:Impossible and the mission was to make a dinner for magicians in Las Vegas. Robert Irvine had to create dishes that tasted one thing, but looked completely like a different dish.
Here's what I did with the scrap cake pieces, leftover filling and icing. Meatballs and cheese sauce aka German Chocolate Cake Balls with Butterscotch Icing. It looks like it, doesn't it? The coconuts can be the onions.
Dessert or appetizer? It's a Dessertizer. I don't know. You decide.
You can view my recipe for the German Chocolate Cake and Butterscotch Icing here.
To make the cake balls:
Crumble the cake into itty-bitty pieces shortly after baking. Make sure that both the cake and filling a cool enough to hand.
Mix in the coconut-pecan filling. Mold into balls. Size is your choice.
Chill in the fridge for at least an hour to let them firm up, then drizzle the icing over like a sauce.
Chill in the fridge for at least an half an hour before serving to let the icing set.
Trick you husbands, dads, father-in-laws or guests at a party with this.
"Hey dad, try some meatballs and cheese sauce" Takes bite. "Whoa...it's cake!!"
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO ALL THE DADS!!!
