Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Mom had an obsession about this cake. She heard about it and couldn't get it out of her mind until she found the recipe and tried it. The recipe is quite old. Pam Silvey happened to have the recipe and sent it to MOM in 1992. She made it and loved it....but never made it again. She had conquered the Burnt Sugar Cake and was satisfied.
