Backwards Birthday!

My Daughter wanted a backwards birthday party, so we had a new challenge...the upside down cake! Of course, we couldn't settle for a pineapple-upside-cake!
This cake was actually pretty simple. I made the bottom layer our of rice crispy treats, and had a 3 inch PVC pipe running up the center of the bottom 2 layers, to support the weight of the top layer.
The trickiest part of this cake was the candles...which we put in upside down, of course! But the candles kept dripping and putting out the flame! We kept trying, and ended up with a lot of smoke, and huge burn marks up the side of the cake. The kids all loved this! I'm just glad the smoke detector didn't go off!
