Chess Cake For 60th Birthday

This was the cake I made for my FIL's 60th. He loves chess, and my SIL suggested that as the theme. It was my first attempt at making 3-D candy, and I need more practice at that, as well as keeping in the lines on the chess board, but all in all, I was pleased with the outcome. He loved it, and several games of chess were actually played on the cake as the party went on. :)
16" two layer spice cake with buttercream icing. medallions and chess pieces in milk chocolate and white chocolate mint.

Beautiful Chess Board Cake! Everything looks awesome and I think it is really cool that several games of Chess were actually played on the cake before it got eaten! Awesome job! :)

Thank you! :) It was really cute.. we had to make him blow out the candles and cut the cake before he could 'play with his food'. :)

The chess pieces are from molds, BTW. :) Got the molds from Confectionery House. They rock!
