Default look what I found........

.......in a box in the garage, Lord knows where or when I got it.......

Question is...has any one of you ever used it ?

Is it a worthwhile endeavor ?

I've never used it myself but I have seen them and eaten the cake. You can use different colors and flavors of cake besides just vanilla and chocolate. That is a neat gadget. If you don't want it I'll take it.

OMG! Absolutely. I had one of those w/ different packaging. I think I used Jiffy Mix (chocolate & vanilla cake mix). Unfortunately, my pans rusted out over time. Definitely make the cake! I think I remember seeing a from scratch recipe at joyofbaking.com. I'll see if I can find it again.

ETA: WOO-HOO! I found it!

I feel as dumb now as when I do your trivia questions, LT. I've never seen one of those before. Nice find.

I don't know if my Grams had one of those, but she did make a checkerboard cake a few times that I know of, so she must have had one.

Cool find in your garage, Lucky.
Show us the cake!

We used to buy the same or a similar cake from a bakery in Manhattan or Brooklyn. There was a layer of strawberry or raspberry jam or preserves, w/ chocolate frosting. Oh, so good.

I have made cookies like that. I also made a sandwich loaf for a tea party checkerboard. Its time consuming to say the least. But worth it when you want something a little differant.

cool find.

I have the same one! Original box like that and all! And yes, I've done it before, and yes, it's worth giving it a try.

I would give it a try, it would be very impressive to cut open a cake to find a checkerboard sponge.

Looks delish to me, Lucky. Are you missing a layer? I think the pans I had had three compartments. How did it taste?

Default Re: look what I found........

cake was great ; couldn't ask for a better experience, taste / texture - wise.......
Artistic grade would be a c- tho'

and mine is obviously incomplete - two layers only......... but then, I didn't and don't know how I acquired it, so..............
We may try again......... warm kitchen season is upon us..........
