Brushing cake layers with a flavored simple syrup works to keep the cake layers moist and adds another element of flavor as well.

If you want to make a citrus syrup, substitute 1 cup fresh orange, lemon, or lime juice for the water. You can also mix flavors, such as vanilla, almond, and coconut extract. Or infuse the plain syrup with fresh herbs, like lavender or chamomile, or add 1 to 2 teaspoons of your favorite liqueur, such as Grand Marnier, St-Germain, or amaretto.
