Somewhere out there on Pinterest I found a checkerboard cake that I was determined to try. And guess what? It works! I opened three little pudding cups to "glue" the layers together. We were a little disappointed in the icing. It was out of a can, a bit like over sweetened paper mâché. It should have been whipped cream instead, but it was a fun dessert to make and share. Impressively, when I asked my son how he thought I made it, he answered "You cut circles," without skipping a beat. And he didn't even need Pinterest to tell him.
