Check Mate

An edible chess board for an 11 year-olds birthday. The chess pieces are made from gum paste and are completely edible and each piece is molded to look like its inedible counterpart. When I delivered the cake he was excited that he would be able to actually play a game of chess on his cake. The cake is 2 layers of marble cake and serves about 30 people. The brown fondant was mixed to give it a marble look, much like the chess board the birthday boy was getting for his birthday!

    Thanks Ernie for such a terrific cake. It was very moist and delicious. The wood grain detailing and hand rolled chess pieces were top notch.
