(Deutsch) As the name suggests, a hidden design in a cake is not visible until the cake is cut. Most of the time you get the design into the cake by hiding ready baked cut out cake bits in a second cake batter. This chessboard design however is much simpler as you cut it out after baking. This makes it a lot easier and it looks just as spectacular.
I am using a simple chocolate and vanilla cake for this. I love making this cake for children especially because it may look complicated, but it really is not and you can make it any colours you like, depending on the theme. I covered this cake in chocolate ganache and added dripping white chocolate because I do not like fondant and it just seemed like a nice alternative.
