How to Make Simply Syrup My Way
Simple Syrup consists of only two ingredients. Just water and sugar. Simple syrups are used to add moisture and sometimes flavor to a cake. Many times chiffon and sponge cakes can be dry so the syrup adds moisture. Traditional wedding cakes used simple syrup. My style of simple syrup is not very sweet and is very unlike most other recipes out there. I also put a fair amount on the cakes I make.
