“The secret to a super moist cake is soaking the cake in a syrup before decorating it- this is done while the cake is still in the pan after the cake has been out of the oven for at least 5 minutes.”

Directions

  1. My favorite method is to poke each layer with a toothpick all over the top, then pour the syrup on top.
  2. In a saucepan dissolve the sugar with the water, bring to a boil, cover and remove from heat, let the syrup cool to room temperature.
  3. Add the 2-tablespoons of rum and stir.
  4. Allow it to set up well before finishing the cake- this will take about 2 hours.
