Like most people, I’m a huge fan of dessert. I try not to indulge too much, but I do like ending my evening meal on a sweet note. A couple of weeks ago, [Matt](http://www.kerner.net/) and [Sarah](http://beautyschooldropout.net/) Kerner came over for a late dinner and Sarah told us about something her family makes called cake waffles. I was intrigued and impressed. Imagine taking simple cake batter and cooking it in a waffle iron instead of a cake pan. Genius! Since I tend to like cupcake tops (who doesn’t) and baked goods that are crispy, cake waffles sounded perfect to me. Steve and I have talked about making them, but they also sounded a bit decadent so I was hesitant to do it. I enjoyed the idea more than the reality.
Last night we met Mick and [Carrie](http://chickletandducky.blogspot.com/) at Patton Alley Pub for a happy hour celebration of Carrie’s new job and Mick’s 30th birthday. Cake waffles came up in the conversation and it was decided that Mick would have cake waffles for his birthday that night. They went to the store while Steve and I headed home to whip up a simple pasta meal for everyone. Mick’s favorite cake is Funfetti so Funfetti cake waffles is what we made.
It begins like this:
Then, pour the batter just like regular waffles:
Mmm, smells like cake baking. After about 6 minutes you have this:
Finally, soften some frosting in the microwave and pour over your new creation. Sprinkles are a must!
They are, in a word, delicious but also quite rich. I could only eat one square and even that was a bit much. They were so good! We spent most of the rest of the evening concocting recipes. You could put ice cream between them and make ice cream sandwiches, stack them and pour hot fudge over them, top with strawberries and make a strawberry shortcake, the possibilities are endless!
