Gooey Upside Down German Chocolate Cake!

Is it HOT where you are?!
Ugh, we have had more than 10 days in a row of 90+ temps with our heat index over 100!
Allison has summer basketball going on, but even with evening games, the temps are still in the 90’s and they’re playing in a gym with no AC!
During the day, I’ve been working on a new blog look!! I’m excited about how it’s coming along, and I hope to have it up and ready to share in the next few weeks.
So in the mean time, I may be posting a little less often. But rest assured, it will be worth the wait!! I’m hoping to have a few guests post and fun giveaways while I’m busy.
Early this month was my mom’s birthday!
She requested her favorite cake… I thought I’d share with you!
It’s a combination of a Gooey Butter cake and German chocolate cake….but upside down!
You do know, everything tastes better upside down don’t you?
