What shall I make from stale Italian Christmas Cake? Bread Pud?

Oh wow! I just found one of those Italian Christmas cakes in the back of the cupboard, I think it's called panatoni?

It tastes good, but the texture is really stale. What shall I make with it?

I was thinking of a boiled bread pudding (like the one I usually make - http://wholewheatfsm.blogspot.ca/2012/12/recipe-for-maple-bread-pudding.html ) but the cake is so much sweeter than regular bread.

Got some other ideas?

Parfait, tiramisu, could even put them in the oven dry them out even further and use them like croutons for icecream.
