Fresh Fig, Walnut, Rosemary Upside Down Cake And A Crisp Citrusy Chardonnay
A fruit upside down cake is one of those ‘hold your breath hope that the universe is feeling generous enough to allow your masterpiece to ease onto the decorative platter you’ve chosen for this momentous occasion’ kind of moments. You brace the plate over the cake, grip both sides, suck it in, hold, flip quick, carefully lift, anticipating the weight of the pan lessening as the sides and bottom release and fall, hopefully.
At this point, one of 2 things happen. You exhale with a broad smile, a huge sense of relief, and a few arm pumping YES’S! Or…..you exhale, shoulders slumping, and your chef hat deflates a little. But then, you brush the flour from your apron, fluff your hat, and whisk it up to just another challenge that you have all the skills to tackle.
