This cake, and I use that term loosely, has taught me you can't trust every recipe you find on the internet. Fortunately I don't remember where I found it or I'd give them a piece of my mind. Or better yet a piece of this cake!
It was supposed to be a burnt sugar cake. I have some vague memory of a friend's mom making this when I was young. Her's was good. This, was not.
When I realized the cake itself was going to taste like crap, I thought maybe the frosting might redeem the whole thing. But no.
How could I go wrong with butter, cream, brown sugar, and a truckload of confectioner's sugar?
I don't know but somehow I did.
Live and learn, I suppose.....and always have a plan B.
