Who's to say, what's impossible,
well they forgot, this world keeps spinning

It's no surprise that I design cards with sweets on them, (New cupcake cards arriving this week, btw!) I bake A LOT. Sometimes people ask me to make them things, and I do so without a second thought. I love to cook/bake, and it's my pleasure if it will make someone happy.

One time a co-worker of mine asked me to make her a pineapple upside down cake. It's a simple old skool dessert, one that's really hard to screw up. Apparently she liked it, because EIGHT YEARS LATER, she emailed me and said, 'Remember when you made me that cake? It was so good! I need the recipe!' Ok, that's just weird.
By a strange coincidence I was going back to that old job this week to visit, so I thought, what the hell, I'd make her that cake that she's been dying for all these years. Only this time I put a twist on it, I made them into cupcakes. As well all know, cupcakes are all the rage right now.

They came out really good, pretty fantastic in fact. I don't know why I didn't think of doing it before. It makes perfect sense, little individual rings of pineapple, bite sized cakies. A nice size.
(This one's a little shorty.) They're a bit different than your average frosted cupcake, but a nice change of pace. The kids ADORED it, which kind of surprised me, but then again, they love fruit. My co-worker? Pleased as punch. Apparently, now I am in the instant gratification sweets biz. Taking orders now, what would you like?

Brilliant!! I am definitely going to try and make these. I love pineapple upside down cake but I bet they're a thousand times better as cupcakes!

Paul is requesting a Boston cream pie while I'm wondering if you could do a carrot cake. Oh hell... anything you make sounds good!

These look really good and I want to try this recipe but what is a "stick" of butter? Can you tell me the equivalent in grams if possible? Thanks :) Kielz

Ah-Hah! I was getting all hung up about the wrapper being in the way, but no wrapper. Duh. My dad makes pineapple uside down cake every Christmas so it's one of my faves. Yum!

Any kind of food porn you choose to provide is fine with me.

I couldn't wait, so I made these today. One word. Yum! The cake batter yielded about 9 cupcakes using the large scoop. Oh, and they slid out perfectly! Thanks for the recipe!
