Store-bought cakes are great in a pinch but you still can’t beat that warm-from-the-oven sensation.

Private SelectionsTM Upside Down Cakes make is super easy to serve up a gourmet-quality dessert. They come in three delicious flavors: German Chocolate Fudge – a classic combination of caramel, pecans and coconut; Double Chocolate Molten – made with real butter, eggs, milk and the finest sweet chocolate; and Amber Honey Apple Slice – sliced apples topped with an amber honey glaze.

Probably because my mother baked cakes all the time while I was growing up and I loved smelling the cake baking and the anticipation of that first bite.

DIY cakes stands are so easy to make and there’s no shortage of cake stand inspiration on Pinterest or around the blog-o-sphere. Here’s a little round up of cake stands you could make to serve up your Upside Down Cake.
