Sometimes we overcook our cakes. It happens. But all is not lost. Trim off any burned edges. Brush the top of the cake with a layer simple syrup. This will add moisture back into the cake. Take it a step further and infuse your simple syrup with herbs or spices. Brush over cake, perfect or overcooked, to add an additional layer of flavor.
Yep! We would do this all the time in cooking school!
It might even help to poke a toothpick in the cake and let the simple syrup sink down in the cake.
Oh, good call!
Oh man that’s genius. Why didn’t I ever this this before?! Great tip, and I agree, cake pops is also a great way to use em.
I wish I didn’t know to do this. That would mean all my cakes come out perfectly 🙂 Ha!
and if does hold together or something – make cake pops out of them 🙂
