      Mom has loved German Chocolate Cake since getting the real deal while living in Germany. She's never had it upside down though so this was a perfect choice for her upcoming birthday. For some reason, the cream cheese mixture mostly disappeared into the cake so I decided to turn it onto a serving platter for presentation. I cooled the uncovered cake overnight, ran a knife around the edges, pushed a small spatula underneath the cake to loosen anything stuck (felt sticky) and turned it upside down onto a parchment-lined bamboo cutting board. It looked fantastic! Everyone gave this cake five stars. It was rich and very moist. What a winner.

      I heard of this from someone else and couldn't believe you could do it. I am so impressed. I took one to VBS at my church and now I have to copy the recipe for 78 workers at church. Must have been good, huh?
