  4. Hello Jinni and Cindy! We hope you try making the Pineapple Upside Down Cake! It was pretty easy to make and we each made one to take home and Shannon and Tilly made an extra one for us to share! We all liked it even though some of us weren’t that keen on pineapple! Have fun at your party on Friday!!!
