Checkerboard birthday cake

This is one way of killing two birds with one stone… giving your parents an awesome birthday present and giving me business @ the same time.  hahaha  My friend Danny wanted to order a birthday cake for his parents (what a sweet son he is!) and was open to any ideas. So I asked what his parents liked: what kind of cake (one likes vanilla, the other likes chocolate cake), what frosting flavors (vanilla and chocolate-raspberry), what colors they liked (green and yellow)… so I had this wild, ambitious idea to make a checkerboard cake instead of making one boring layer of chocolate, one blah layer of vanilla…

On the outside, this is a normal 9″ three-layer cake with my trademark roses in yellow (I really should learn how to make other things out of frosting  haha) and basic border design in green with standard white vanilla icing and freehand “Happy Birthday” in yellow.  (My apologies to Danny’s parents; “Mom + Dad” didn’t fit after I wrote “Birthday”.)  However, on the inside, this baby is CRAZY awesome.  Once you slice it, you’ll see a delectable raspberry-chocolate frosting in-between layers of…  a checkerboard made of cake!  Not too shabby, eh? EH?  =)

I was SO glad Danny’s family liked this!  ¡Feliz cumpleaños, Senor y Senora V!
