Vegan Burnt Sugar Cake With Icing

I loved this cake as a child. I haven't tried this one yet, but plan to soon. To burn the sugar for this recipe you need to take 1 cup of sugar and put it into a heavy skillet, stir until it's melted. You must burn it! Once it's dark brown add 1 cup of water and boil until you get a syrupy consistancy. I got the original non-vegan recipe from cooks.com.
