Insider Info

For cakes served outside of a ramekin, such as a muffin tin or mini cake pan:

Unmold mini cakes on a small shallow serving bowl or dish with a rim.

Poke holes in the mini cakes thoroughly using a fork. Spoon 4 tablespoons mixture over each mini cake. Loosely cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate for 2 hours to overnight to allow the liquid mixture to soak in.
