If you're looking for something to do today then I hope you like fruity cakes because it's National Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Day!  The wrong way never tasted so right!  Let's get right into celebrating National Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Day!

WHY IS THIS A HOLIDAY?  

Today is a holiday because pineapple is a delicious fruit and when you add it and its juices to a cake then you're bound to come out with a delicious treat! So many people enjoy this upside-down cake that they wanted to celebrate it; that's pretty much it! And hey, it's pretty fun eating a cake upside-down.  No, you don't have to do a handstand to eat this cake. All you do is melt some butter and pop it in your cake pan and then sprinkle brown sugar all over that. This is to help your cake easily slide out of the pan once you're done cooking it.

Then you lay down a layer of pineapple rings and pop a maraschino cherry in the center of each ring. Yep, your cake is going to look like a glazed ham!  The cake batter can simply be a box of white cake mix that comes with its own instructions. All you want to do is replace most of the water they call for with the pineapple juice from the pineapple rings. This ensures that you get pineapple flavor all through the cake. Then you just bake it as per the box instructions, let it cool for 10 minutes and then carefully flip it onto a plate or platter.  And BAM, you've got an upside-down cake that looks like it's right side up!

HOW TO CELEBRATE 

So how can you celebrate today?  Well, you can easily head to your local grocery store and see if they don't already have some ready-made pineapple upside-down cakes ready for you to munch on. That's quite a simple way to celebrate but it obviously won't be the freshest cake.  So why not head down the grocery aisles and see if you can find a pineapple upside-down cake mix? It's a little more work but you'll know exactly what's going into your cake and it'll be as fresh as possible. Just make sure that you're careful when you flip it over!

Or, if you're not one for cakes from a box, then you can scan your cookbooks or look online for a pineapple upside-down cake recipe. It's really not that hard to whip up and it's such a sweet-tasting cake!  Plus, if you make it from scratch, you can make sure that only the healthiest ingredients go into your not so healthy cake.  You could also make things interesting by telling your friends what day it is and have them all take part. Each of you bake your own cake and then meet up somewhere and sample each others cakes. It doesn't matter how you make it, just show up with your own cake! Then you can see who had the best recipe and who flipped their cake over with the least damage. The winner... is just awesome!  Enjoy your day and have fun flipping!
