- Buy 2 different cakes of same size and height. Choose flavours that go together, such as vanilla or coconut and chocolate.
- Using dental floss, cut each cake into 2-in. squares and rearrange onto a platter or cake board, alternating colours, to form a checkerboard-patterned rectangle.
- Pipe your choice of store-bought icing onto seams.
- Garnish squares with alternating vanilla and chocolate cookies like checkers!
