Lightly brush it on with a pastry brush. Shouldnt use more than a cup for each tier, less even.

Its a mix of water and sugar that is cooked until the sugar is dissolved and "syrup-y". Its used for making several things including lemonaide. Its used to brush on cake to keep it moist if its going to be out for a longer period or a type of cake that might not be as moist as it should.

Question about using simple syrup, do you put it on the torted cake or put it on the top to soak through? I'm making a white almond cake can I add almond extract to the syrup or should just leave it plain? this would be the first time doing this and I don't want to mess it up.
