Checkers anyone?

I home-school my 9 year old son and we have been doing edible creations this semester in art.  I couldn't believe it when I saw this contest while browsing through the your site.  I knew we HAD to enter!

We chose a checkerboard theme after a travel board we own.
We used different flavored fondants for the sides, and chocolate and vanilla boxed cakes under the fondant.

**I should be more specific because my pictures are small and hard to see (don't know why. computer illiterate I guess ...):

We used dark chocolate fondant for the sides, as well as the darker checker pieces.
We used a white chocolate fondant for the white tiles, and a peanut butter fondant with dark chocolate swirls for the marbled, lighter colored tiles.
The pink checker pieces were made from a white chocolate fondant that we colored with dry cherry jello mix.

Nothing fancy, but a  lot of fun!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I really like the marbled effect of the dark tiles.
