I use 1:1 water to sugar, but you can use up to 2:1 water to sugar. Add the liquer or other flavor whenever...If it's a juice I add it after the syrup has boiled, if it's a liquer I tend to add it ahead for some reason, don't know why I do that. There might not be a reason for it, but my brain isn't working too well this morning to ponder the reason. I just add it to taste, because especially with the liquers if you add too much it can make the cake taste alcoholic.
It helps add a layer of flavor to the cake.
