love the cake
ok, first your twins are adorable... I bet they're a couple of scamps
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! =)
OMG! Your boys are so cute!
I have 2 boys too, although not twins, I can totally relate!
Awesome job on the cake!
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?)
