EQUIPMENT: 2½-qt saucepan, whisk, stainless steel bowl, 9 x 3-inch springform pan, electric mixer with paddle, rubber spatula, red toothpick, 10-inch plate, serrated slicer, large 100%-cotton kitchen towel, cake spatula.
Preheat the oven to 325℉ (160℃).
To prepare the caramel flavoring, combine the granulated sugar and lemon juice in a 2½-qt saucepan and stir with a whisk to combine (the sugar will resemble moist sand).
Caramelize the sugar for 5 to 6 minutes over medium-high heat, stirring constantly to break up any lumps (the sugar will first turn clear as it liquifies then brown as it caramelizes).
Remove the saucepan from the heat and carefully add the heavy cream; stir to combine (the mixture will steam and boil rapidly as the cream is added).
Transfer the caramel to a stainless steel bowl and allow to cool to room temperature.
