Sweet Mango Up-Side Down Cake for my Mom!

That’s a picture of my Mom.  I have always been insanely attached to her.  She is the center of my world and if you know me, there is a good chance you know my mom too.  We are inseparable.  She is my best friend.  She is my confidant.  She is the strongest woman I know.  I respect her more then anyone or anything.  I just LOVE her.  I always want to make her happy or let her know how special she is to me.  This momma’s day we will celebrate with a sweet mango up-side down cake.  She loves mango, and up-side down cake. So why not combine the two?  This is for my Momma and maybe yours too…. Sweet Mango Up-Side Down Cake!
