A couple of weeks ago I bought an interesting chequered cake thingie with the hopes of making the Wee Man a little treat.
Well last week after school, the Wee Man insisted we make a chequered cake and I know I could have put my foot down and refused but I secretly wanted to give it a go too. So without the right amount of ingredients to make the full size version. I played about with the recipe and quantities to make a two tiered one.
It kinda worked out.
We had to kind of squish the cake mixture into the rings. This was very fiddly and frustrating.
Carefully ease the rings out...phew! The white cake batter is lumpy cos it has banana in it. Just so you don't think I didn't mix it right.
Ta-Dah! Baked and out the tin. Marvel at how the rings have baked into each other but not actually "bled" into each other.
The second tier.
Some butter icing between the layers and....Voila a chequered cake!
A definite hit with the Wee Man and all the kids at school the next day.
