A few years back I made a Topsy Turvy cake for my niece’s birthday. Somehow I can’t seem to find the picture in any of my files. Luckily my friend’s daughter was turning 15 years old at the beginning of this month (September) and gave me a call to make her a cake. It is always an honor for me to be part of my friends special moments.

The request was to make to top of the turvy cake, a small cake, it was to share amongst them four (the household). The colors to include were; lilac, fuchsia, blue, brown and lime green. A big “15” on top with lots of stars was a must and for the flavor she wanted it to be a rum cake. We in Puerto Rico call it a “Puertorican Cake”, which basically is a cake soaked with a simple syrup that contains rum. It can be a gold rum or brandy.
