MOM'S CHECKERBOARD CAKE

My mom used to make this fun and delicious cake. As a child I had no idea how it was created but just assumed my mom could do magical things. After all, she did have eyes in the back of her head.
I found this picture while going through her papers. She apparently wanted to save the memory, and I am so glad she did.
As I got older, I learned her secret was cake pans with specially designed inserts. The chocolate batter went in certain places and the yellow in the other.
When a slice of cake was placed on a dish you could play tic-tac-toe on it, if it lasted that long.
