Any tips on how to transform something, especially a liquid, into deep-fried concoction?

"Some tips would be to choose a cake that will complement, yet not overpower the liquid," suggests Amy. "Also, make sure the oil is at the correct temp of 350 - 360 degrees to ensure a crispy crust and a moist, flavorful center."
