Can anyone give me idea on what to do about a cake I baked, chocolate, that came out a little dry.? I don't have the time to bake a new one as I have to decorate it early tomorrow morning. Any siggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
I have heard of brushing it with a simple syrup to give it more moisture. Normally after torted you would do this.
I've found that if you fill a cake with pudding...Jello (instant) vanilla, chocolate...whatever. When you cut into it, the pudding should moisten it a little. Hope it helps.
I make an orange cake where I poke holes in it after it's baked and add orange jello. One 3 oz package and a cup and a half of water. It always comes out moist. Sorry I don't have any more ideas!
I was given a hint from a baker mix some sugar and water and spray your cake with it to bring back the moisture.
You could brush some coffee or Kahlua on it - that would also add to the flavor of the chocolate. Most scratch bakers add a liquid like that to the cakes all the time for moisture. (I would guess they brush it on or "spray" it somehow)
Thank you all for your suggestions. You all gave me great ideas. I think I will combine a little of everyone's ideas/suggestions and roll em into one.
