My son's birthday falls on 6th July and i made this cake for him. He is very fond of chess, often busy with Harry Potter chess pieces and his school seed postion and i decided to give him a surprise...it took me three late evenings to make the madeira cake with fondant kings and queens and knights and bishops and...and...phew ! altogether 32 pieces and the board. I chose the theme of tricolours : white, black and blue to represent the colours of Botswana. The party was celebrated on the lawns of new Adansonia Hotel amidst our friends, his friends from his school and our friend circle and the day ended with chess cake being shared among us all after he blew the candle and the kings and knights and bishops becoming part of the edible history !
The coming weeks have interesting themes and I will try to share with you all as they come along.
