Pineapple upsidedown cake gone under

I couldn't help but giggle yesterday as I prepared a pineapple upside down cake for my mother-in-law's birthday. Al & I were set to head over for dinner with the family so I thought I'd whip up a cake. It was not to be. After baking the cake I flipped it over (so it would be upside down) only to realize that the bottom (now the top) was raw. HORRORS. Turns out my oven was on broil...not bake- OOPS. Out of desperation I threw it back in right-side up to broil the other side. Result: a terrible looking cake that still managed to taste ok- though it was rather flat. I decided to bake some apple muffins to bring over just in case we found the cake inedible. Disaster!

We had a fun evening though- all parties seem to focus on babies though. And would any of you believe that Auntie Sarah is being blamed for teaching baby Mutale this face? Why I'd never...

Of other interest- we bought our plane tickets home yesterday. We'll be back in Edmonton March 26th...I can't believe it's so soon!
