Hi all,
I couldn't resist showing you all this picture of my twins at their grandparents anniversary party - this is what happens when you are 3, there's 2 of you to lead each other into trouble and you both really, really, really want that cake before anyone else!!

secondly, great cake. how did you do the checkerboard.

I LOVE that cake!! Your boys are so handsome too! =) I have twins, but boy/girl, so at first I thought the cake was for the twins & I think that would be a cute idea for me to do in pink/blue. Thank you for sharing! If you have any other great twin ideas, pm me, mine are just 16 months, so I have so many fun years to come! =)

Thank you all for the lovely comments on my boys and the cake!
Yes they are complete scamps, never did I have these problems with their older sister! But they are completely gorgeous with it and sooooo much fun to be around(never do I say double trouble, just double fun!)
The chequerboard effect on the cake was very simple but a little fiddly. I basically iced the cake with white fondant then cut out a square of brown chocolate fondant (roll it quite thinly then it's not so obvious) and sugarpaste glue'd it on the top corner. The best advice I can give is to cut it bigger than you need then you can shape it round the corner and then cut off the excess at the bottom. I imagine you could do a similar effect with buttercream or royal if you masked the area you didn't want to colour, maybe with cling film (I think you call it saran wrap?)
Thanks again
