The fabulousness that is that old family favourite…The upside down cake! An opportunity to get creative I say! I just love the whole process, mixing the batter, slicing the fruit, creating pretty patterns, and then, the reveal! Lifting off the cake tin to admire all that time and effort, pure joy! Be sure to watch the video at the end.
