<p />Thanks to Mrs. Puj, and those who steered me to her recipe. For the girls' 9th brthday, I decided to do this upside down thang, and lemme tellya it was purty good! I did not do the rum/maple syrup drizzle, but instead made home-made whipped cream.[p]Main lesson learned was always wait for the cake to cool completely befor adding birthday candles. By the time I grabbed the camera, the candles (in the shape of a "9") had completely melted below the surface of the cake. Below is a picture of my "fix".....even though we had blue gobs of wax all through the inside of the cake! Does wax have beneficial fiber?[p]UpsideDownCake.jpg[p]This recipe is a winner and, apart from peeling and slicing a bunch of apples, it was pretty easy.
Happy thursday!
Chris

    QBabe,
    I used the one Slagameter posted....I assume that is the official Mrs. Puj version. I did add one more egg though...but otherwise did exactly as instructed.
    Thanks for the birthday wishes. Will pass them onto Jenna and Kara when they get home from school!

  • Gretl,[p]hi to you and yours.[p]You guys showing up for Eggfest?[p]

    Nature Boy,[p]I don't know if'n wax has any beneficial fiber or what not..on accounta I don't go anyway near nuttin what's made of wax no more..evah since the great town dump incident of 1977..when I was insulted by a wax object of ill repute..[p]It started out a great summer day..on accounta momma announced we wuz gonna go to the dump to get some things what we can build a fort outta..them dump divin days is always great..and I had no reason to think that this one would not be the same..till my brother Mike played a horrible trick on me..as is usually the case.[p]As as we got there..we seen a giant cardboard box what used to hold a fridge..you see somethin like that...and if'n you got a ginat cranium..your heart just plum skips a beat..cause you know you'll be able to climb inside that darned thing without leavin your giant cranium exposed to the elements..we sure was excited that day I'll tell you that..and my brother Mike bein the oldest and wisest of the bunch..took first dibs on climbin inside that box..and the rest of uf just lined up behin him..waitin our turn..me bein the last in line.[p]It was then that things went so horribly wrong for the Stump..for within a second of Mike bein in that box..he stuck his head back out..and he tells me he found a football..and he said "run Stump and I'll throw it to you" and I started running away from the box..when I looked back..and seen him climbin outta that box..he yelled out "Go long Stump go long...banana in...BANANA IN!!"..and just then.. he hurled this newfound dump toy..and as I seen it comin towards me...I started thinkin maybe Mike's football throwin skills ain't what they should be..on accounta that football was wobblin like you read about..but then..as it got closer..I thought maybe the prollem was not so much Mikes throwin abilities..as it was the fact that the darned football was deflated...and then...as it came right at me..wobblin and turnin as it came...[p]It dawned on me..that Mike had played a dirty trick on me what I won't soon forget....for coming right at me..I could tell...altogether entirely too late I might add..was not a football at all...matter of fact..it was a non-aerodynamic fleshtone colored wobblin manthing replica (albeit hairless) of unusually large proportions..bearing down on me like there was no tomorrow. It was at this point that I realized..my entire family had stopped to watch what was going to happen..except for Mike..he was laughing so hard he was doubled over in pain.[p]You see somethin like that comin at you..fast as can be..you gotta get a lot of thoughts goin real quick before you decide how to proceed. My first thought was that even though I was surprised as all get to to be put in this position..I prolly should't open my mouth to scream....I'm sure..I told myself..that there'd be plenty of screamin to be doin after that there fake football is all done comin at me..the second thing I thought of..is I shouldn't prolly turn around and duck hopin that thing missed me alltogether...on accounta from what little exposure I'd had to these kinda things..mostly from poppas prized magazine collection..even though them things had only the one eye..it still apparently had pretty good aim..so's I figured if'n it seen something what it wanted to land in..it'd prolly make it there..which would be good for nobody..most specially me..though something tells me Mike woulda sure thought of this as icing on his cake. [p]The third thing I thought of..is that I should prolly close my eyes..I always wondered what momma meant by sayin if'n I played with somethin like this too much..I could go blind..but in that instant..with that god awful thing bearin down on me like you read about..I knew too clearly what she meant....so the very first thing I done was close my eyes real tight..then..knowin I done everything I could..I stopped short..and quickly rememberin back to poppas magazines on apparently how one should properly hold this offendin football of ill repute..I reached out with both hands in front of me..one in front of the other..curlin them fingers around ..each formin a giant circle....and slowly..I felt that one eyed wax football enter this area..the force of the impact slowly moving these football catchers towards my forehead..and just when it felt like I would escape being bonked in the head..that wax footballs built in lower stops..slammed against the back of my football catchers..causing them to lurch forward..and that nasty wax football..just barely pinged me on the forehead. [p]But just as I opened my eyes..and seen I was bein started back at..and I realized I'd done caught this football..I heard Mike yellin for me to run to the endzone..and with great pride..before I realized what I was doind..I tucked that footballs done under me left armpit..and I wrapped my left arm around it..and I ran like there was no tomorrow....and I was a good halfway to seven points when I done realized what it was exactly I was doin...[p]I will nevah forget that day..the day Mike done ruined dump divin and football for me forevah...but I'm not sure which I miss the most.[p]Ahhh...the life of a Stump[p]StumpBaby
  • Nature Boy, That is fantastic looking. Do you think a 9X 13 pan would work in place of the cast iron skillet?[p]SB

    Ya know Bob....
    I dunno. Alls I do know is that this is the first time I ever have done sumthin like this, and the cast iron pan worked beautifully. I would guess a glass pyrex dish would give you somewhat of a similar result, but that with a thin metal pan, you would need to cook a bit lower to prevent the outside from burnin. But this is new territory fer me....so maybe someone else will jump in with some better advice.[p]Don't see any reason you would notice a diff between round and rectangle.
    Beers!

    StumpBaby,
    Wouldn't a wax manthing replica encounter the same problems as the candles when it is put in its place??? What are they doin' makin them thangs outta wax anywho? You need some good heat and friction resistant rubber.....do you not??[p]Hell...mebbe that splains why it was in the junkyard.[p]Thanks for providing much food for thought.
