I got this from a Canadian Pastry Chef - The easiest way to make a moist cake! Use a regular box mix, use milk instead of water. After the cake is baked and before it is completely cooled, go ahead and torte it, then liberally brush a simple syrup solution over each layer. I use the opportunity to add flavorings including liquers but I've had nothing but positive results. If you wonder about the use of this technique, check out the Ace of Cakes episode where they make the giant toe!
