Cake syrup grand marnier

Cake Syrup grand marnier is a cake syrup with Triple sec orange liquor. The brand makes more flavors, but for this recipe I am using Grand Marnier Triple sec orange liquor. Whenever you are making a sponge cake, you can brush your cake with Cake syrup grand marnier. This gives your sponge cake a delicious orange flavor. This recipe is very easy to make and after cool off, you can bottle this recipe in case you are making more sponge cakes. There are plenty of other cake syrup recipes with other spirits. Vodka is another spirit used in pastry recipes. Grand Marnier brand has several other fruit flavors. The orange flavor fits best with European pastry recipes. For this recipe you need a sauce pan, spatula and a funnel. See my recipe below.


  1. Use a sauce pan and a spatula. Pre heat on medium fire 1 cup of water with 3/4 cup of granulated sugar. Stir until granulated sugar desolves.
  2. Add 1/3 of Grand Marnier flavor of choice! Stir for another 30 seconds and let it cool off to room temperature.
  3. Use a clean small bottle and a funnel and bottle cake syrup grand marnier.
  4. Label your bottle with Cake syrup grand marnier and date of production.

Cake syrup Grand Marnier


The brand Grand Marnier have 2 orange flavors. One is with Triple Sec and the other one is Cognac. I prefer Triple Sec orange because it is more soft. This bottle has a yellow label and Orange cognac has a red label. the Triple Sec orange (yellow label) is difficult to find. Red label orange cognac is more common. This depends in which country you are. The yellow label (triple sec orange) you can find this in a better specialized liquor store or google. I hope this recipe is useful for your bakings.

  1. Nice simple recipe. I added some zest as well for added flavour and a bit of colour. My one issue - it says to label date of production but then doesn't say how long will it keep in the fridge.
    • Hello Taneeks, We have bottles for over a year. Just use a sterilized jar or small bottle and you will be fine. Good luck.
