Instructables
So what could top an Instructables holiday meal but an Upside-down Pineapple RoboCake? Make individual serving size cakes to enjoy when winding down for a special treat after the guests have gone or just make one big family size one to share with everyone.

Traditionally, upside down cakes are made in a cast iron pan. Since we want a special shape, you will need to break out your Instructables Robot Robo-form which will mold the cake. You can also make this with the Hello Kitty form which would be purrr-fect for your feline fanatics.

Step 1: Get ready...

Since you spent all day preparing the other parts of the meal for your guests, dessert should be quick and easy. I will take the shortcut here and use prepared ingredients but if you had the time and inclination, please make everything from scratch.

You will need:

- Box of cake mix (any kind, white, yellow, sponge, chocolate, marble, etc.)

- Can of sliced pineapples in syrup ( you can substitute any kind of sliced fruit, canned or fresh)

- A couple of pats of butter

- A bit of brown sugar, any kind of regular sugar will work if brown sugar is not in the cupboard. You will have a richer color and flavor if brown sugar is used.

- Robo-form "pan" (Robo-form with an aluminum foil bottom)

- Heavy cookie sheet or cast iron pan to fit your Robo-form

Don't have an Instructables Robot Robo-form or Hello Kitty-form, make one:

small custom forms
or
larger custom cake pans.

The Instructables Robot is quite versatile. So is a blank sheet of paper.
