Burnt sugar water is actually a syrup which is used to add a caramel-like flavour to different foods. The most popular food made with burnt sugar water is cake. Burnt sugar cake has been around since at least the early 1900s and is often paired with burnt sugar icing. Both the cake and the frosting's flavour are derived from the burnt sugar water. There are many different ways to adjust the flavour of the sugar water, but the simplest way is to add butter or a 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.
