Snowflake has some fabulous ideas for making the most out of your Christmas cake leftovers! These easy-to-follow tips will have you serving up some deliciously different treats for the rest of the holidays.</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Rum and raisin split</span><br />Mix a cup full of Christmas cake, crumbled with a splash of rum (optional) through soft serve vanilla ice cream. Once you have mixed the Christmas cakes with the ice cream, freeze it for a few hours. Serve with sliced banana, chocolate sauce and cherries.</p> <p><br /><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Truffles</span> <br />Thickly slice your leftover fruitcake and cut out shapes of your choice. Melt dark chocolate and stir in finely grated orange peel. Coat the cut out fruit cake with the melted chocolate and put in the fridge to set.</p> <p><br /><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Ice-cream topping</span><br />A dash of brandy, crumbled Christmas cake, grated orange peel, juice and drained canned black cherries in a pan. Simmer until thick and serve with ice cream.</p> <p><br /><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Quick trifle</span><br />Slice your leftover fruitcake and it drizzle with orange liqueur. Spoon mixture in ramekins and top with whipped cream and custard. Serve dusted with icing sugar or grated chocolate.</p> <p><br /><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Boozy baked bananas</span><br />Peel and slice fresh bananas. Place the sliced bananas in a baking tray with juice and grated peel of oranges. Crumble some of your leftover Christmas cake over the placed bananas, with some sherry or any other fruit liqueur and treacle sugar. Bake until the sugar is caramelised. Top with some cherries and serve with your choice of ice cream.</p> <p><br /><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Pancake filling</span><br />Fold crumbled cake and a dash of something boozy through stiffly beaten cream and use as a pancake filling.</p> <p><br /><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Festive custard squares</span> <br />Cut puff pastry into small squares. Brush the pastry with butter and bake according to package instructions or until golden brown. Slice width ways and fill with some custard and Christmas cake. Dust some icing sugar on the top and serve with an ice dream of your choice.</p> <p>If you have any ideas that you can add to our Christmas Cake Leftover tips, please post them on the Snowflake Facebook wall. #Bakehappy</p>
