The Checkerboard Cake

A cake for all chess lovers! Not only there’s a checkerboard on top, but it’s also a surprise when you cut into the cake. I won’t lie, the procedure is long and demanding, it took me 5 hours.

I used a round baking tray with 22 cm diameter. You can also use the bigger or smaller baking tray, but then you have to adjust the quantity of ingredients or the cake will be shorter […]
