Originally posted February 25, 2008 – I’ve never really had the patience for cake decorating, but after getting addicted to watching cake decorating videos on Instagram, I was inspired to spend some time and effort on a cake. I searched the archives and decided to remake this Burnt Sugar Candy Bar Cake. The first time I made it back in 2008, it was a little overly sweet, so I made a few alterations this time around and I think it came out perfectly. It is still very sweet (it is cake, after all), but it was a huge hit. I have also included high altitude changes in the recipe notes.
