The apple upside down cake was really fun because one of my friends, Augusta, came over to help! It was so great! I normally don't like upside down cakes because I think they're kind of ugly but seeing as this is the first recipe in Rose's Heavenly Cakes, it certainly needed to be tried.
I let my mom pick a Thanksgiving cake and this was her choice. She loves apple so this one was an easy pick.
Before I get busy talking about the cake though, I want to take a second to clarify something. I have been surprised at how many people have stopped me to ask if I think I can actually make my deadline. They've been very concerned that I'm behind. I didn't understand where the concern came from but then someone mentioned that I was going to have to make a cake every day till the end of the year if I was going to make it. Then it clicked. Somehow people got the impression that I was going to try to make them all by the end of 2011. So just to clarify, my deadline is actually in April since I am not superwomen, I am a full time student, I'd like to maintain my weight, and since my goal is one year from when I started. Check out the ticker on the top right side of my blog to see the countdown.
