Patty Cake

(Hee hee!)  Couldn't resist that title. 

Ester wanted a checkerboard cake for her birthday this past week. 

I thought I'd share the anatomy of one in case you have never baked one yourself.  (I used white and chocolate cake mixes)

I baked and froze the cakes one week before her birthday since we had so much going on up to her birthday.  With the three layers, I could not even put my cake dome on - that's a lot of cake!

And here is a picture of the birthday girl with her birthday cake ~

I had almost forgotten to take a picture of the inside ~

It took 2 1/2  ( 1 lb) containers of the prepared (Duncan Hines) buttercream frosting. 

I purchased my Chicago Metallic checkerboard cake set years ago.  It is a fun cake, but very time consuming!
