I have read that some of you brush some simple syrup to cakes or cupcakes to add flavor and moisture. What is it? Do you buy it or make it? I would like to try it. Thank you for any help.
It's just a mixture of sugar and water. You can add extracts and liquors to it for flavor. It is really simple to make, just combine equal parts water and sugar in a pan, bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Kill the heat, let it cool, add your flavor of choice, and there you go!
