Right now, I'm cooking for only 3 people, and really only 2 because one of them, a 15 yr old boy, has very infantile tastes, and likes nothing except chocolate chip cookies and white cake (which are both nice, but get old). I like to bake new things, muffins, cakes (with different flavors!), mousses, etc. Here's the problem, its always too much and we can't finish it all (okay we probably could, but we'd also have to get liposuction or something). What should I do? Any tips on what to do with leftover desserts or how to avoid leftovers? I love the look of layer cakes, but am now thinking I should halve all recipes/ quarter them to get single layers, or only 6 cupcakes.
