This cake looks complicated, doesn’t it? Like, I’ll-never-be-able-to-make-this-in-my-wildest-baking-dreams complicated.

This is most certainly what I’d love to find at the end of a rainbow. Created by the very tasty My Cupcake Addiction, the Rainbow Checkerboard Cake uses the traditional method of making a checkerboard cake – but it’s so much more fun!
