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.
To pipe the rose’s I followed my Original Rose Cake Tutorial.
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. 😉
Wouldn’t this cake be fun customized to your favorite colors? Maybe a favorite football team for a Superbowl party? I love the idea of adding a bit of a feminine touch to the party!
