Upside Down Cake Tutorial by claremanson Upside Down Cake Tutorial by claremanson
It's been a long time since i have had the motivation to write up a proper tutorial rather than just stick the recipe in the description of my photos but this was the motivation i needed as the possibilities for the choice of fruits and how to serve it is brilliant all year round for snacks and desserts. Monday i made a banana version for a snack, today a peach version to be served warm with custard for a warming autumnal dessert.

There is one thing i forgot to add to the recipe, if making a gluten free version (which is what i always do) add a tsp of Xantham gum to the flour for better texture and moisture.



If you make it, I would love to see it so, here is another tutorial for basic food photography.

Hello! :wave: I used your tutorial and made an upside down cake of my own: adoettei.deviantart.com/art/Up… Thank you for this tutorial as it made an amazing cake which was delicious and my whole family enjoyed it. I think I will continue on and try to make more recipes like this, and follow your other tutorials. Obviously they lead to great things. :la:

how long does it take you to write up a tutorial usually?

It depends on the recipe, it used to take me literally hours when I first started but I'm now used to doing it plus I keep the background as a kind of template that i can change the colour of and size of to suit the next tutorial. It's even quicker if you don;t have any making of photos and is just standard writing as it saves a lot of messing around. I'd say it tastes me 30-40 minutes average now, slowly getting quicker.
If I am completely lacking time I will just write it up in the description like one I will be posting at the end of the week for a banana cheesecake, that only took 5 minutes.
Also writing out a tutorial is quicker and easier if you do it when it's still fresh in your mind so within a couple days of baking.

:giggle: you really have to be very motivated over a certain recipe/tutorial to do it, some I think I will make a tutorial over but end up can;t be bothered too! It's a nice little tutorial by the way, simple to follow and easy steps to remember, good work :)
