Mango Mojito Upside Down Cake!
I don't know about you guys, but *I* could certainly use a break from thinking/blogging about our tornado ordeal! Roofers start tomorrow, so how about a little normalcy on the blog?
Today, I have a treat for you - Mango Mojito Upside Down Cake! If you are looking for an easy, summery cake to bring to a BBQ or event, look no further. This one is SURE to impress.
This recipe may look daunting at first glance, but it really is easier than it appears. It’s also my absolute favorite recipe in my cookbooks Evil Cake Overlord and The Spirited Baker, and possibly the best cake ever created. Not kidding. It is too fabulous to have NOT included it in both books!
This is the cake that got us on the Wolfgang Puck's Minneapolis catering preferred vendors list for wedding cakes... when we were still making them!
A Note From The Future: This post went up a couple of years before this cake got me onto MasterChef Season 4 (USA). If you're interested in reading about that, HERE is the link to the search category of blog posts for it.
