Did you use too much syrup? When I made rum cake, I used a pastry brush to apply the syrup, moistening, not soaking the cake. Can you stick them in the fridge to firm up? That is so sad!

I agree with cakemommy3...sounds like too much syrup was used. Just a little goes a long way....

Good rum cake generally is soaked fairly thoroughly, but you need to use a firm cake for it to be able to take on all of that liquid. It may be that the cake you used was too moist and soft to begin with, which is fine for normal cake, but not for this.

Yes, I did soaked and it got all mushy..... I'm going to try again tomorrow with a different recipe.

It has been raining for three days, do you think that got something to do with it?

Thank you Girls!!!!!!!! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif
