What I love about these bite-sized ‘cakes is there are so many ways you can customize them to your tastes or to the seasons. I used a chocolate hazelnut spread and strawberries in these images, but you layer in peanut butter, bananas, apple butter or even pieces of sausage or bacon for a savory option.
