I have been eyeing the checkerboard cake on pinterest for months now. But, without the Wilton checkerboard cake pan set, it seemed a dream.
But a little research on google lead me to several recipes for baking it without those special pans. Though, it seemed complicated and too much effort , but intriguing at the same time 😀
Several recipes later, I finally found a very simplified version on Fauzias kitchen.
So, basically you need 2 different coloured cakes and lots of frosting.
I opted for chocolate and vanilla cakes. And, its always better to bake the cakes 1 day earlier for easy handling.
Now use 2 different sized cookie cutters to cut three concentric circles of all the four cakes.
So now you have 12 circles of cakes 😀
I know it sounds confusing and way complicated, but stacking the layers together is the most fun part of this project 🙂
Just make sure you use abundant frosting between the layers and refer the easy illustration in the link.
Once you are done, refrigerate the cake for a few hours and then STUN everyone!!! It’s a crowdpleaser in taste and looks too!!
