In Search of the best old fashioned Southern Caramel Cake Recipe

I know there are a lot of caramel cake recipes floating around, but my grandmother in Louisiana used to make the most amazing caramel cake. It was the icing that was the most amazing and it was simple, but I have never been able to replicate it. Her icing was simply a can of pet milk, sugar and butter. She would cook it until it turned into a rich caramel icing. People came from miles around to eat this cake.

Please share your recipes even if it is not this one. If by chance someone knows how to do the cooked version with pet milk, can you walk me through how long it is supposed to cook to get to the right texture.
