Place 2 tablespoons sugar in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and becomes golden brown in colour, but do not stir. Set aside.
Combine remaining sugar, butter and cream in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to the boil. Stir in caramelised sugar, and return to the boil. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Beat until icing has a good spreading consistency.
