  1. Ah Milagritos! Thanks so much for your authenticity. I so so so understand hangryness. When I get hangry, I eat sweet things and feel disgusting because I haven’t eaten any real food. Then I feel even more cranky. In spite of all that difficulty, your upside down cake looks really decorative. You write beautifully too.

    1. Ah, Kimberlie, you are so funny! And thanks for understanding this condition! It’s always a downwards spiral when I’m hangry unless I choose to eat a piece of fruit or a salad instead of coffee and cake (a difficult choice as one is not always rational during this type of crisis) 😉

  2. It looks gorgeous! Highly doubtful the hangry influence will have made any difference in the final taste. If mine stuck I was going to get out the hair dryer to loosen the top. Can’t wait to hear how it tastes! Keep us posted. I so want to make this when rhubarb finally reaches the markets.

    1. Hello Vicki! Thanks for your vote of confidence! I like the hair dryer tip for next time. Actually, the rhubarb was easy to handle, with no sticking whatsoever. It’s just…the color. The fruit looks a bit washed-out and dull after cooking. I’ll let you know how the cake tastes, hopefully, better than the way it looks.

    1. Faithy, please do, you are welcome anytime! We are starting to see a lot of rhubarb in the shops but it’s easy to plant and grow…two of my sisters-in-law grow it in their backyard.

  3. How nice it is to have rhubarb, and your cake looks very nice. Sometimes it a process of learning…I had to make the cake three times before I somewhat figure things out. Its all good as long as we enjoy the process. Sugar will make you cranky, but a good protein meal to start the day will make for much easier day…:-)

    1. You made the cake three times? I shouldn’t complain at all then. There is much to learn from this group when it comes to perseverance! I agree, as long as the process is enjoyable there is much learning to be had.
