Have Your Cake and Play It

A tasty morsel to start the week.

As seen last month in a Parisian pâtisserie.
Another one for LASTG*UR. Possibly.

Touch a piece, and eat it. You can have another bite here, if you can bear it.

It took me all day to get that LASTGUR reference btw.

I had a chess themed cake for my 40th birthday a few months ago. It looked great and was tasty, too!

Late "Happy Birthday" greetings SofP

Your cake here looks delicious. And they set the board up right!

Please do enlighten us...

Well, if I'm right, it's a nod to Richard James and The Complete Chess Addict and in the original the G was not Gateaux it was a 'b' for board.

Any offers on this? If none by the time I get home tonight I'll reveal all.

PS: The clue, I believe, is looking at the cake, in particular the bottom right-hand corner.

thanks for the clue JB.

League Against Setting The Board Up Rong (Or Gâteau, obviously).

One of The Addicts enduring legacies, along with IAGOCOT

And, as I've noted before, very much the inspiration for our TIFEs and TISEs and TITE and whatnot.

Here's another one for your LASTBUR.

It's Gary Barlow's pad, apparently (assume pieces put en prise are accompanied with the words take that...)
