My sister and I made this cake for my Mom's Birthday. Unlike many of our other cakes it is not covered in fondant, just chocolate icing. The thing that makes this cake special is its inside. This is called a Checkerboard cake because the chocolate and white cake are alternating. This is relatively difficult to do, especially if you do it without the proper size and shape of cookie cutters. First you create a pattern of 5-10 circles (depending on how small you want each square to be) and cut baked sections of white a chocolate cake. You then assemble then, alternating, so that they look like a target. you stack each layer on top of the next one, alternating so that it looks like a checker board. This sounds pretty complicated, and i'm not very good at explaining it so i'll see if i can post a video demonstrating how to do it. Anyway, hope that you enjoy this cake!
