One of the best and easiest and tastiest icing ever!!! Great recipe thanks! - 30 May 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
i grew up with this icing and was so excited to find it here! my mom always put this on top of date cake. it actually seal in the moisture of the cake and creates a nice crunchy topping. make sure you brown it till it's good and golden, otherwise it won't caramelize and just ends up gooey. i just put it on an applesauce cake and it's terrific. can be made with either white or brown sugar and you can use milk instead of cream. - 06 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I slightly changed this recipe; deleting the nuts; substituting milk for the cream and adding a tsp of vanilla. I use this on a standard white 'scratch' cake and everyone gobbles it up.......the cake doesn't last 2 days with this topping!! - 17 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
