I am making some checkered flag racing cookies and trying to plan them out in my head. Does anyone have any input in the best way to make them even and nice looking. I am thinking maybe i should make a white filled cookie and put black checks over it or maybe make the grid pattern and fill in the individual checks. Any opinions on the best way to make this cookie look nice. For something so simple I think it is going to be hard to make everything look even and straight.

I've never done that but I would make the grid in black and flood each individual check. Other option, try not to make them straight. Make them like a waving flag. I think that would give you a little more flexibility with trying to get the lines perfect.

You run the risk of the icing bleeding when you put a dark color on a light background. It's way better to do the dark first, then add the light. Just a suggestion.
