Foodie Friday! ~Checkerboard cake~

This week my niece Brianna came to visit and we made a fun cake...
I used my daughter's checkerboard cake pans and it was easy and fun!

My Niece Brianna:

Pouring cake batter using the guide that cake with the cake pans:

Taking the guide out and washing it before I move to the opposite color.

Three layers of red and white:

Baked to perfection:

Carefully stacked and frosted:

Beautifully frosted:

Our cake, a little lopsided, but not bad for our first attempt.

Try a piece?

    So Kelly... where did you get those pans anyway?

  4. I have always wanted to make one of these. Yours is so gorgeous. I am sure it tasted even better. What great cooks.

  5. I have always admired these when I saw them---but they intimidate me! The best part is the time you shared with Brianna and the lifelong interest you may be helping to spark in her! I think your first effort looks professional!
