Here at Great Eight Friends we love quality products and we especially love when they come from small, independent companies. One of our favorites is Sir Kensington’s, a delightful condiment company changing our view of the world of ketchups, mustards, mayos and other spreadable goodness.
We also love to get together to have Gr8 Fun, so we decided to make an entire meal using the various Sir Kensington products…and how much fun we had!
Jurga was kind enough to host this shindig at her beautiful home and the guys came over after work to enjoy some Gr8 Food. As dinners go, it was simple food…but made with the BEST ingredients. Which is always the way we should eat.
Sir Kensington’s is a delightful young company whose motto is, “More Refined Because It’s Less Refined.” If you have any sense of humor at all, visit their website. Their products are of serious quality but they don’t take themselves too seriously. It is a young, fun company.
All the recipes will be posting soon on the blog. But today we are starting with dessert!
Because sometimes you just have to have a “backwards dinner.”
Divide the batter evenly among the three cake pans.
Bake cakes until a tester inserted in center comes out clean, about 30-35 minutes.
Cool cakes in pans on racks for 10-15 minutes.
Run a knife between the edge of the cake and the pan to loosen it, then carefully invert the cakes onto racks to cool completely.
Put about a Tablespoon of frosting in the center of the platter or cake plate you are using. Then place 1 cake layer on this (to hold the cake on the plate). Spread 3/4 cup frosting over the top of the layer to the edges.
Top with 2nd cake layer and again spread 3/4 cup of frosting on the top of the layer.
Place the 3rd layer on top of the first two and spread the remaining frosting over the top and sides of cake.
Decorate as desired. Or leave it just as a delicious, moist and tempting chocolate cake!
I had hosted a party with a Gold and White theme and had some leftover edible gold flakes...YES! Some gold is edible! So I sprinkled some of the flakes on top...Easy and Elegant!
If you are interested in the edible gold, I got mine from Amazon. And it goes a very long way. We used it at the White and Gold party for the Margaritas and then on the cake and I still have about 3/4 of the shaker left!
