Saturday was my dad's birthday, so Chris and I went to Mobile for the day. I brought along this cake, which I spent alllll Friday night baking. I even got to whip out the Kitchenaid mixer I got for Christmas last year! I hardly ever get to use it, especially in our small apartment. I searched for a recipe that I knew my dad would love, and finding nothing exactly what I wanted, I combined two recipes. I used this one for the cake, and this one for the praline-crusty-goodness. I just used a good ole' store-bought cream cheese frosting... I know, I cheated. Shame. Anyway, the result was what I have so lovingly dubbed, a Brown Sugar Praline Upside-down Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. Quite a mouth full, right? Wait until you taste it! Oh my, it's all sorts of sinful. I wish my dad loved pumpkin as much as I do so I could've made the Praline Pumpkin Cake as it was written, but I guess that just means I'll have another excuse to bake something pumpkin! I have a problem, I know, but it's only a few months of the year, so it's okay.
