Does anyone use a syrup coating on their cakes to keep them moist? If so, what kind of syrup, how much do you use, and how do you apply it?
I am not an expert but I use 2 parts sugar to 1 part water. I boil the water to dissolve the sugar and then I place the mixture in the refrigerator to cool. I simply brush on with a pastry brush or use a spray bottle. As I said I am not an expert but it works for me. Good luck!
Thank you-I'll have to try that!

Thanks Mouse!! You kept me from looking for it.
Has anyone ever poked holes in thier cake and done this??? Also, has anyone ever tried doing this with Eagle Brand milk? I have had tres' leches and it wasn't soggy at all, I was just curious if anyone had tried using just Eagle Brand instead of simple syrup. I am too chicken to try it.
Smiling.... I can eat eagle brand right out of the can!!!! OH..... it's soooo good. Pouring it on top of a cake sounds wonderful!!
I've never poked large holes in my cake as yo do with a jell-o cake. I have however especially with a dry cake) taken my fork and poked the heck out of it. I especially do this around the edges if only the edges are dry.
