I need your help. I am making strawberry shortcake cupcakes this week, and I need strawberry syrup for decoration. The cakes will have a buttercream frosting... and I wanted to drizzle a little syrup on top. Being that it is mainly for decoration I am open to suggestions on the best way to have a pretty effect (since the cake flavor is strong enough, "strawberry" flavoring in the syrup is not a big deal... I'm going for looks. ) My one worry is that the syrup will fade/look watery or melt the BC. I maybe crazy... but do you have any good recommendations for the best looking strawberry drizzle?
Have you thought about using Smucker's Strawberry Syrup? That would be the quickest and easiest I would think.
There's always the coffee syrups too.....but I would think they are a little thin.
Otherwise, it's fresh strawberries, mash 'em, cook 'em, strain 'em, add sugar and cook it down some more until it thickens.
