Combine sugar and butter in a large bowl. Add eggs, beating well after each addition. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour into a well greased and floured 9 x 13 inch cake pan. Bake at 325 for 35-45 minutes or until done.
Place sugar, butter and cream in a medium-size saucepan. Bring to a boil; add remaining ingredients. Stir to prevent sticking. Pour over cooled cakes. Serves 8, depending on who those people are, LOL.
