Adding 1 tablespoon of honey to any cake batter keeps your cake moist. The honey draws moisture to the cake and it stays moist from first slice to last. You do not need to change any ingredients and it can be added to a box cake mix or a homemade cake.

Sounds like a great idea, honey helps bread keep from drying and molding, also. God's creatures do it best! I found out that baking the cake at 325 not 350 makes for a moist, better tasting cake. People have noticed. Can't wait to try the honey!

For a moist cake every time, place a pan of water in the oven while the cake is baking, this way the heat will take the moisture from the pan and not the cake.
I do this with most baking items that I bake and it hasn't failed me yet.

A friend of mine who decorates cakes for important occasions told me after baking she freezes the cake layers and this makes them moist.
I don't know if she decorates them while semi- frozen or after thawing, but her cakes taste like they have pudding in the mix and she says they are standard, cheap pre-packaged mixes from the grocery store with the additional add ins (eggs, water, etc.) called for on the box. (10/24/2005)
