Sugar Syrup

soaks an 8-inch three layer cake Conversion Chart Print

Ingredients

cup of sugar
1 cup of water

Preparation

1. Boil water & sugar together. Once it boils, lower the flame & allow it to heat for another 1 minute. Remove from heat & cool completely. It can be made in advance & stored in refrigerator.
2. Use ⅓ cup of syrup to soak one layer of cake. If you are soaking White Cake then reduce the syrup per layer i.e. ¼ cup sugar in ¾ cup water. And soak each layer in ¼ cup syrup. With ⅓ cup syrup, I have found the cake to get over soaked.

Notes

The more you soak the layers before filling, the more moist your cake will be.
