Dinner Club Tonight...Italian Creme Cake

Tonight is our Dinner Club ~ 4 Course Italian Meal!
I was asked to bake and bring an Italian Creme Cake....
....and frozen Vincent Van Gogh Espresso Vodka to serve with it!!
(the icing has this vodka in it, too!)
The cake looks pretty good...the icing is delicious!
Can't wait to bite into it tonight!! (Fingers crossed it tastes as good as it looks?!?)
We were asked to make our dishes as organic as possible.....
We buy organic fruit/veggies...but some of these items were a new to us!

Italian Crème Cake
Although many ingredients are used, preparing this cake is a most enjoyable experience
Sparkman’s House Overlooking the Onioin Creek Club 12th Hole (North)
~Dinner Club July 2011~

In a mixer, cream the following ingredients:
½ stick softened organic butter
½ Cup shortening (organic if available)

Add-in, gradually the follow, in order, one ingredient at a time:
2 Cups organic raw sugar
5 organic egg YOLKS (only), one at a time (save egg whites for later)

With a whisk or spatula, fold in:
1 TSP organic baking soda
½ Cup organic buttermilk
1 Cup organic baking flour
1 Cup organic whole wheat flour
(or 2 Cups organic whole wheat BAKING flour if available – in either case 2 Cups total flour)

When those ingredients are folded in, fold in:
1 Cup organic coconut flakes
1 Cup EITHER organic pecans or organic walnuts
3 TSP organic vanilla
Lastly, beat until slightly stiff 5 remaining organic egg whites and fold into batter

Line two cake pans with wax paper, flour sides, and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Let cool, and remove one and ice the top, then the other and ice top and sides.

For the icing, cream the following ingredients:
1 stick softened organic butter
8 oz organic LIGHT cream cheese
1 TSP Vincent Van Gogh Vodka (place the remaining vodka in the freezer for drinking with the cake)
Juice of ½ organic lemon (use juice press for best results)
1-2 Cups organic powdered sugar (start with 1 Cup and add until reaching a smooth consistency and tasted for taste)

I will post pictures and more recipes from our 4 Course Italian Meal after tonight!
Looking forward to a great evening with friends!
