This is a super way to use up leftover cake

  • Fresh mint leaves, thinly sliced 10
  • Leftover cake, cut into bite sized pieces 2 cups
  • Castor sugar 1 tbsp
  • Lemon juice 1 tbsp
  • White wine (optional) a splash
  • Whipping cream 1 cup
  • Fresh mint sprig 1 to garnish


  • Take strawberries, sugar, lemon juice, mint leaves and wine (if using) in a bowl and mix well. Let the mixture stand for 20 minutes or till juices flow out.
  • Whip cream in another bowl with a hand blender till soft peaks form.
  • Spread some of the strawberries at the base of a trifle dish, top with some pieces of cake, spoon over the juice given out from marinated strawberries. Cover with some of the whipped cream.
  • Repeat these layers. Decorate with fresh strawberries and a mint sprig and serve chilled.
