Chess B-day Cake

I have always wanted to make a chess cake and I am glad my son decided to have one for his birthday. One thing I decided to make a little  bit differently than usual is the way I molded the chess pieces. I would have made them out of fondant, but then I decided to use chocolate, because I thought the kids would enjoy the taste better. Not to mention that white chocolate is the perfect ivory color for a chess piece.

The kids had a blast and the b-day boy was so excited to share his edible chess pieces with his friends.
Happy 9th Birthday, Kalin!
