Preparing the Base

  1. Start by combining 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of brown sugar in a saucepan. This will be the base for your syrup.
  2. Add 1 cup of water to the sugar mixture. Stir it gently and put it on the stove over medium heat.
  3. Keep stirring until the mixture comes to a gentle boil. This will create a rich syrupy base.

The Flavor Enhancements

  1. Once you've achieved the desired consistency, it's time to introduce the flavor. Add 1 1/2 tsp of cake batter extract to infuse that delightful cake flavor.
  2. Follow up with 1 tsp of butter extract for a creamy and rich dimension.
  3. Finally, add 1/2 tsp of almond extract for that unique Starbucks twist. Keep stirring as you add these flavorings to ensure an even distribution.

Simmer and Cool

  1. Reduce the heat to low and let the syrup simmer for a few more minutes. This will allow all the flavors to meld together beautifully.
  2. Remove the syrup from the heat and let it cool. Once it's at room temperature, you can transfer it to a suitable container.
