I need a bit of help with figuring out a non-alcohol flavored simple syrup for a wedding cake I'll be baking. It's a pretty straight forward cake - yellow butter cake with white chocolate swiss buttercream and raspberry jam filling. The exterior is going to be covered with a crusting buttercream.
The only simple syrup that's non-liquour flavored that I can think of to compliment the cake would be a tahitian vanilla bean syrup. But I'm concerned with the white chocolate and the crusting buttercream, a vanilla simple syrup would make the cake too sweet.
I'd appreciate any suggestions that you could offer.
