A Smart Way to Reuse Leftover Biscuits: Learn How to Make Mosaic or Pyramid Cake

published by Burcu Unal on Sep 4, 2010

This dessert is very easy to prepare with the ingredients you have at hand and it is a practical, economical way to reuse leftover biscuits.

While we were moving in to our new house we could not cook anything proper and buying packages of different

kinds of biscuits was a good idea to quickly satisfy our hunger and keep on working. After we moved in completely and started our new life as a newly wed couple, I noticed that our cellar in the kitchen was full of half eaten packages of biscuits of every kind. 

Those half package biscuits are always kept for a while but doesn’t matter how tightly you wrap them they become useless. You keep them till they are so rotten and so inedible that your consciousness is relieved enough to throw them into the waste bin. 

I don’t like throwing away any food if it is not threatening health so I started thinking of a way to reuse these biscuits. Then I remembered my mother making a delicious dessert out of biscuits for me and my sister while we were small children. It is called Mosaic Cake or Pyramid Cake. I quickly searched for its recipe and tried it. 

I not only found an economical way to reuse leftover biscuits and felt myself smart enough but also remembered to make this delicious and for me nostalgic dessert which is very easy to prepare with the very ingredients usually found in homes.
