Soaking a cake is a classic secret to moist cake. It’s also incredibly easy. Simply combine the ingredients in a small saucepan, heat, and BOOM. You have liquid gold that will make even the simplest cake recipe truly special.

Orange slices and glasses of rose wine.

This cake soak is perfect if you are looking for fun recipes using rosé wine (I love it for a girls’ night) or want to take a basic cake recipe and make it truly special.

This particular cake soak isn’t overly sweet, and because it also contains butter, it gives the cake an extra layer of indulgence. You won’t need frosting when you use it. The soak is plenty flavorful on its own.
