Elegant Almond Tuiles

Also known as tuilles. These wafers are dainty. They are scrumptious. They are pretty. They are crispy. They are delectable. They are just one more word, oh so delicious!

It is a checkerboard cake made of pink, green and yellow vanilla cakes. However, I wasn’t so sure of what the outside was to look like except I wanted it to have a mixture of the same colours I used inside the cake. After a bit of time thinking and imagining, here is what I came up with. A marbled cascading petals fondant cake with checkerboard layers inside.
