Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes

My father in law is a big PUSD cake fan. So for Father's Day, I baked these cute little cupcakes for our cookout. They are great for a small taste!
My silicone cupcake pan worked great for this recipe. I used this recipe from Crazy Cupcake for the topping, but since I was also making 4 other kinds of cupcakes for the cookout, I used a boxed yellow cake for the cake part.
Sometimes I really think you can't tell it's from a box, depending on what recipe you are doing. Especially with this recipe, since the topping sinks into the cake somewhat.

Forgive me but the first thing I thought when I saw your cupcakes was that they look like breasts!

That said, as soon as I read they were pineapple upside down cupcakes, they looked just like pineapple upside down cupcakes.

My grandmother used to make a fabulous pineapple upside down cake. You've inspired me to try to duplicate her excellent recipe. THanks!

HaHa Dana, of course that was what my husband said!
Do you know, it was hard to take a picture of them. I had to keep moving them around, because next to each other boobs were all I could see!!!!
