Rose Covered Checkerboard Cake

I had no intentions of making a Rose Cake.  I was actually planning on doing a tutorial for this cake, but something happened.

I was so inspired by the whimsical beauty of the MacKenzie-Childs products, I just couldnt help myself!  Since I knew the interior was a checkboard design, I thought the soft Rosette’s would be the perfect compliment.

In addition the the cake interior, the Rose’s seemed a perfect compliment to the beautiful cake stand the cake was sitting on.  I fell in love with the Parchment Check collection from MacKenzie-Childs and I hope you do too.  Cause guess what?

To  pipe the rose’s I followed my Original Rose Cake Tutorial.

For the interior I slightly modified my Vertical Layer Cake Tutorial.  I made the layers white and a pale yellow, trying to replicate the same design that is on the cake stand and accessories.

Then, instead of placing the same color layers directly on top of each other, I just switched out the layers to make a checkerboard pattern.  SO easy!  Of course, you can always buy the checkerboard pan too. ;)

    I really like the Antique White Round Mirror but honestly everything on that site is amazing.
    Your cake is breathtaking, I wish I had that talent.

    You are really amazing! Every time I see another one of your creations, I want to try it. I tried using a checkerboard pan to put a cross in the middle of a cake, but the colors did not stay sharp. The mixes floated together. Gee I wish cakes were calorie free.

    Hello Amanda ! I would be so grateful if you could go over how you did the checkerboard pattern. I’m really bad at getting things without a picture and I cannot figure out how you did it !!! Pls *bats eyelashes*
