Spot the Leftovers!

The Wednesday morning tea platter is back. I’m a bit out of practice and left my run a bit late for the baking this morning.
 
The result is this, what I call “Spot the leftover cup cakes”, a guessing game for morning tea bonus (!)
 
I figured the cakes were likely going to be too warm to ice before it was time to leave. What to do?
 
To the rescue – small meringue swirls leftover from making lemon meringue tarts a couple of days ago. I put them on top of the cake batter before baking; thought the meringues would likely burn but they didn’t.
 
A little raspberry jam, the last in a jar in the fridge, was piped in after baking for extra flavour.
 
A leftover ginger pistachio shortbread ball was place in one just for the fun of it, a real surprise for whoever got to eat that one.
 
In the end I was able after all to ice some very quickly, just before they went out the door.
 
I do hate to see leftovers go to waste. This wasn’t a half bad way to use them up as it turned out.
