Tips!

  • Be sure to not poke all the way through the cake when you make the holes. They should be about 3/4 of the way through the cake.
  • The holes should be around 1 inch apart. Too close together and the cake will be too moist, too far apart and there may not be enough filling.
  • Let the cake cool completely before poking the holes.
