   In a large mixing bowl, cream sugar and butter. Add eggs, one at a time,
   beating well after each addition.
   Stir together all dry ingredients; set aside. Combine cider and vanilla.
   Add dry ingredients alternately with cider mixture to batter. Mix until
   well blended. Spoon into a greased 10-inch angel food cake pan or fluted
   tube pan. Bake at 325 degrees F for about 1 hour and 10 minutes or until
   cake tests done. Meanwhile, combine all icing ingredients in a saucepan.
   Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. While cake is warm,
   drizzle 1/3 of the icing over the cake. Serve remaining icing over
   individual cake servings, if desired.
