There are 3 things I am famous for in my family. Hugs, making personalized cards, and my pineapple upside-down cake! For my brother Patrick's birthday, he will receive all three! This was such a blast to make and much easier than I had expected! After cutting the cake panel and punching the pineapples out of very vanilla, I colored both with sponge daubers for a smooth look. With a more coarse sponge, I sponged creamy caramel to make the cake look realistic. The lines on the pineapples I 'drew' with the edge of a piece of cardstock dabbed in close to cocoa. The cherries are punched circles out of real red with a lot of crystal effects (didn't have any small clear bubbles!) Added ribbon, dimensionals, a simple tag, and I'm done! Very fun...you have to try it!!!! Thanks for looking!
