Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Mr.'s family is full of stories.
Here's one:

One day Grandma made a pineapple upside down cake.
It was greatly anticipated*
as she had several children
and all were raised with a proper sweet tooth.

*This was in the olden days 
when children 
did not eat
all day.

A lady friend stopped to visit
and admired the cake,
mentioning that it is 
her favorite 
in all the world.

Having the grace of a lady,
"Take this one," says Grandma.

"Oh no, I couldn't!" exclaimed the lady friend.

"No, really, you must," insists Grandma.
"My children don't LIKE 
pineapple upside down cake."

And so, lady friend skips home,

cake in hand.

Grandma waves goodbye from the porch,
with several sets of teary eyed children,
clinging to her skirt,
and no pineapple upside down cake.

I saw this video, 
and thought I might make one.

Now you want to make one too,
don't you.
