Chess Board Birthday Cake




Hi guys! My husband's birthday was on Monday (May 24th), so I decided to make him a chess board cake.. since he is the Chess Instructor at our local Junior High & High School. This was my FIRST time working with fondant.. and let me tell you, it's a mess to make and hard to work with! The chess pieces came from a chocolate mold I ordered online. (This was the easy part! lol) I researched ALOT of websites & finally came to the conclusion that marshallow fondant was the easiest & cheapest to make!

I DO NOT like the way the white fondant came out ON the cake. But it being my FIRST time using it.. I guess it's not THAT bad, right!? HAHA I shouldn't have rolled out the fondant so thin! But oh well.. now I know for next time!
