Okay I have been hearing alot about this simple syrup I was wondering what is it made of?
When do you use it?
Sugar and water boiled together. You can add liqure or other flavorings as well. Most people use it when making scratch cakes to keep the moisture in.
If I remember right it should boiold for at least one full minute. Then add any flavoring(s) wanted.
You spray it on cakes to help keep them moist. It also can help seal so what moisture is there won't evaporate.
It's 1 part sugar to 1 part water. Bring it to a boil, add flavoring and let cool. Then you brush it on the cake layers to add moisture and flavor. I love using it, especially to add a subtle flavor to the cake.
You actually don't need to boil the water, just heat it enough to sufficiently melt the sugar. You can make it in large batches and store it in the fridge and just flavor as much as you need for each cake at the time (some people choose not to flavor it at all, but I like the extra layer of flavor it can give to the cake by changing up the syrup flavor).
Wonderful! Thank you all. Like i said I heard people mentioning this in their forums but never knew what they were talking about.
Thank you again CC!!
