    Hi Alfred,  thank U  /img/vbsmilies/smilies/smile.gif

    I used a checkerboard pan set..  You can find the pan set at any store.  The cake is not hard to make,  just need patience..

    SO AMAZING! I need a baking mentor like you! Everyone in my family leaves cakes/pies/desert up to me but I never try such ambitious designs!

    thank you..  /img/vbsmilies/smilies/smile.gif

    I do a lot of trial and error.. it can be wasteful,  but to me it is one way I will learn.  If I like something I see,  I will try and make it until I get really comfortable and be good at it.
