Chocolate cake (or cupcakes) always seem dryer than vanilla so wanted to share something a dear lady taught me years ago! When baking chocolate cakes, take the layers (or cupcakes) out of oven when they still have a glossy look to part of the top. They will continue to bake for a min after removing them from oven so this helps keep them moist. Plus after frosting my cakes or cupcakes, i cover them and place them in fridge until a couple of hours before serving. Ensures a more moist cake!
