23k GOLD!

For the 2011 Kentucky Derby® the Barnstable Brown Gala commissioned Kentucky Woods® to make a 23k gold cake for their Derby Eve Gala.

This special artisan made Kentucky Woods® cake featured real edible 23k gold, handmade by 4 artisans over 3 days. Valued at over $10,000, the center piece cake was served at the 2011 Barnstable Brown Gala on Derby Eve.

We used a special blend of bourbon with the feature Bourbon to be Parker's Heritage Collection ® Anniversary Bourbon valued at over $200 per bottle. Parker's Heritage was named the “American Whiskey of the Year"

Kentucky Woods® is the original, one and only Bourbon Barrel Cake™ and is a moist brown sugar cake with pure maple and chocolate cake, topped with walnuts, chocolate and caramel bourbon icing. We use seven year aged Kentucky bourbon to give a very unique nutty and maple flavor. After baking what is left of the bourbon is not the alcohol, yet the essence which is the richest form of bourbon. All the flavor without the alcohol, is our secret!
